DATABANK ANNOUNCES 6MW DATA CENTRE EXPANSION
PRESS RELEASE: DataBank announces the expansion of its San Diego Data Centre facility, SAN1. The facility is located at 12270 World Trade Drive, San Diego.
The expansion will add 40,000 square feet of raised floor space, nearly tripling the data centre’s current space, bringing the total capacity of the site to 60,000 square feet. The construction project will add two megawatts of critical power. A second phase of expansion is planned, which will add four additional megawatts, bringing the site’s total IT capacity to 7.5 MW.
The Global Commercial Real Estate Services recently reported the San Diego area had the sixth highest percentage gain in software and technology service jobs among 30 major tech cities in North America.
“DataBank originally acquired this data centre site from legacy Kio,” says DataBank Vice President of Construction Tony Qorri.
“The customer demand was already there at that time, and the region continues to gain the attention of start-ups and tech companies looking for access to major markets. We see this as a great opportunity to meet the needs of customers who are relying on first-class IT infrastructure to gain traction in the booming San Diego metro.”
SAN1, DataBank’s premier World Trade data centre facility is a carrier-neutral interconnection hub with access to 10+ on-site carriers and many Internet, fibre, interconnect, and cross-connect options. The Tier III facility features security measures that include dual-factor biometric authentication, video surveillance, 7x24x365 staffed security, mantrap, CCTV, and bulletproof glass in the lobby.
