DataBank Acquires Building and Land for Fifth Data Center in Denver
Tuesday 27 July 2021

Dallas, US-based colocation, connectivity, and managed services provider DataBank has purchased the existing facility located at 6961 S. Quentin Street in Centennial Colorado, the company said.

The facility will become the future home of DEN5 DataBank's 5th Denver data center and augment capacity to meet the accelerating demand for mission critical IT infrastructure in the Denver market.

By purchasing an existing light industrial facility that can be rapidly retrofitted, DataBank furthers its strategy of owning and controlling the real estate beneath its data centers, and accelerates the pace at which it can bring online new capacity.

The 108,000 square foot building will ultimately provide 75,000 square feet of raised flooring and 15mw of UPS power designed to accommodate high-density computing, enterprise and hyperscale workloads.

The new DEN5 facility is adjacent to DataBank's existing DEN2 data center, which has been in place since 2011, providing a convenient campus environment across which customers can confidently expand their IT infrastructure.

In addition to being carrier-neutral itself, DEN5 will be able to leverage the staff, resources, network and carrier access of DEN2, further accelerating deployment and enhancing scalability.

The initial DEN5 build will feature one data hall of 30,000 raised square footage and 6MW of power, with expansion capacity of two additional data halls.

DataBank's edge infrastructure platform provides colocation, cloud and network services across its 60+ data centers, modular/micro data centers and 20 neutral interconnects.

The company's colocation and edge infrastructure footprint consists of 60+ data centers and 20 interconnection hubs in 29 markets, on-ramps to an ecosystem of cloud providers, and a modular edge data center platform with virtually unlimited reach.
