DataBank reinforced Salt Lake City’s status in the heart of the “Silicon Slopes” when it began construction of its latest Salt Lake City data center, SLC6, increasing capacity to meet the fast-growing demand for mission-critical IT infrastructure in Utah.
Strategically located in Bluffdale, UT, SLC6 resides on DataBank’s Granite Point Campus — an engine of digital growth in the region. In total, the 23-acre campus includes a 66MW substation, ensuring lower costs and scalability for enterprises and hyper-scale cloud ventures.
The new data center adds 100,000 sq. ft. of data center space, and 22 MW of total power and will be adjacent to four other DataBank facilities on the campus providing convenience for customers looking to expand capacity, while efficiently leveraging existing on-campus staff and resources.
DataBank will offer a range of colocation, cloud, connectivity, and managed services, providing customers with the reliable IT infrastructure they need to create a limitless digital future for their business. The DataBank expansion aligns with the company’s commitment to enterprises with workloads of all shapes and sizes — from high-density hyperscalers to local small businesses that do business on the edge.
Salt Lake City is at the nexus of growth for start-ups and venture capital in the tech industry. The region has technology, research, and education assets, as well as a top-ranked talent pool drawing from Brigham Young, University of Utah, and Utah State. A recent study conducted in all 50 states found that Salt Lake City was the best state for start-ups. Utah’s capital city has more tech college degrees per capita than areas including Boston and San Francisco.
The facility has been designed from the ground up with a full suite of customer amenities and all the security features needed to meet HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SSAE-18 SOC1 and SOC2, GDPR, and FISMA compliance requirements.
