Built through a deal-driven “digital playbook,” DataBank is a combination of the convergence of technologies and companies with the goal of capturing the huge opportunity in edge computing. Over the past few years, DataBank has transformed itself from a provider of pure colocation services to a leading-edge infrastructure powerhouse combining colocation, cloud, interconnection and a robust set of managed security and compliance.
An example of DataBank’s growth in action is the company’s recent completion of its migration of customers and assets from the purchase of the zColo data center assets from Zayo Networks, which added 44 data centers, 13 key interconnect locations across 23 markets in the U.S. and EU. This year-long migration delivers upon the company’s ‘Data Center Evolved Strategy’ and works in lockstep with providing customers broad geographic reach and moving their workloads and content closer to the edge.
Now, covering 27 metro markets, DataBank’s total portfolio features more than 65 facilities and:
- 2.0M square feet of raised-floor data center capacity
- 183 MW of installed UPS capacity
- 60+ world-class data centers
- 20 major network interconnect hubs
“It’s important to DataBank that every customer receives the best service and user experience possible. As such, our team worked diligently to ensure that all customers are fully integrated into DataBank’s proven customer-focused service framework enabled by our world-class customer portal providing real time communications, interconnection management, access control, monitoring, and analytics. Through the migration process, we are proud to have also significantly elevated Net Promoter Score (NPS), which is a core metric used in customer experience programs. Completing one of the largest integrations in our industry, while improving the customer experience is a testament to the deep dedication of our DataBank team and their proven integration capabilities.” – Vlad Friedman, CTO of DataBank

DataBank also recently announced its new 11-acre data center Denver campus that will provide the capacity to support high-density computing, along with enterprise and hyperscale workloads. The company has also recently agreed to purchase four existing data centers in the Houston, TX metro area from Cyrus One. It is through this aggressive growth strategy that DataBank has cemented itself as the largest privately held data center provider in the U.S., delivering stable, consistent revenue and profit growth.
