As data center demand rises by the day in Utah and Salt Lake City, the market is scrambling to keep up with the capacity needed. Enter DataBank to the rescue. The leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announced the opening of its newest Salt Lake City data center this week, SLC6.
The expansion announcement means increased capacity meets the growing demand for mission-critical IT infrastructure in Utah and the Salt Lake City market.
The 171,000 square foot expansion adds 100,000 square feet of raised flooring – 50,000 of which will be available on day one. The project establishes two new data halls, expected to open in October of this year. Some 11 megawatts of power are available now, with another 11 megawatts to come online in the future.
“Utah is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the U.S. The state’s prime real estate, low cost of living, and deep technology talent pool, make it an ideal location for start-ups. Additionally, its internet speeds are among the fastest in the nation, which is attractive to start-ups as well as enterprises.” – Tony Qorri, DataBank’s vice president of construction
A grand opening event is slated for November 15, and more information will be released soon.
