DataBank is adding over 40,000 square feet of raised floor space, nearly tripling the data center’s current space. The expansion brings the total capacity of the site to 60,000 square feet. A second phase to the expansion is planned and anticipated to add four additional megawatts, bringing the site’s total IT capacity to 7.5 MW.
“DataBank originally acquired this data center site from legacy Kio.The customer demand was already there at that time, and the region continues to gain the attention of startups and tech companies looking for access to major markets. We see this as a great opportunity to meet the needs of customers who are relying on first-class IT infrastructure to gain traction in the booming San Diego metro.” – DataBank Vice President of Construction Tony Qorri
