DataBank Expands at its “PIT2” Pittsburgh Data Center

To meet the growing demand for mission-critical IT infrastructure in the Steel City, DataBank announced the expansion of its Pittsburgh Data Center, PIT2.  Pittsburgh, a city that links Midwest and Eastern business markets, is also a world-class hub nurturing technology, research, and education assets. The city’s Pittsburgh Innovation District, a center for inventiveness and ingenuity, includes the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University (home of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center). 

It’s estimated that local enterprises have invested more than two billion dollars into research and development in Pittsburgh. This investment is driving the need for colocation, connectivity, and cloud services — and makes Pittsburgh a prime location for enterprise-class data centers. 

DataBank added 25,000 sq. ft of raised floor space and 2.5MW of power to this geographically strategic site, bringing the totals to 40,000 sq. ft. of raised floor space and 4.5MW of UPS power.  

The company added space within the larger, secure, three-story, 115,000 sq. ft. building in North Fayette Township, and augmented the facility’s power and cooling systems to provide a total of 4.5 MW of redundant power and flexible cooling to support 60KW per cabinet. This carrier-neutral facility offers excellent connectivity with a range of onsite carriers, and a high-speed connection to PIT1, the regional carrier hotel, which provides even more options.

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 hands-on support, managed security and compliance services, along with 100% uptime guarantee, provide an extra level of support and reliability for enterprises. DataBank provides its customers with the reliable IT infrastructure that they need to create a limitless digital future for their business.
