DataBank, a Dallas, Texas-based leading provider of enterprise-class data centers, cloud solutions, interconnectivity, and managed services, as per recent reports this week, has commenced construction for its Salt Lake City 5 (SLC5) data center facility. The upcoming facility, which will be located within the company’s 24-acre Granite Point Campus in Bluffdale, Salt Lake City, Utah, aims to enable enterprises and hyperscalers with development space for deployment and expansion.
In its statement, DataBank clearly mentioned that the new SLC5 facility will be up and running by the end of Q4 2019. The Granite Point Campus already encloses SLC2, SLC3, and SLC4 data center facilities, along with the company’s own 66 MW electric substation.
“Today’s high–performance computing, content providers, cloud giants and large enterprises need the ability to rapidly scale across all fronts – capacity, power, cooling, and connectivity,” stated Kevin Ooley, President, and CFO for DataBank. “DataBank designed the Granite Point campus with our customers’ power and expansion requirements in mind, which were also the underlying reasons we designed and operate our own N+1 power substation. SLC5 offers customers redundancy at every level along with the ability to securely and reliably deliver applications and content.”
Reports are that the new facility will be connected to the SLC1 facility, and will also encompass DataBank’s full suite of services, which includes colocation, compliant hosting, managed services, cloud computing, and storage.
“Designed to support mission-critical workloads, SLC5 will be built to the standards necessary to achieve a high-security environment such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SSAE-18 SOC1 and SOC2, GDPR, and FedRAMP,” the company said in a statement.
