DataBank Expands Its “DFW3” Dallas Fort Worth Data Center

DataBank, in a move designed to add space and capacity to meet growing customer demand for critical IT infrastructure, announced the expansion of its Dallas Fort Worth Data Center (DFW3.)  DFW3 offers a game-changing option for companies in Plano, the fastest growing area within the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, adjacent to the region’s “Telecom Corridor.”

The expansion of the data hall brings an additional 12,000 square feet of raised flooring and an additional 1.5MW of power online and represents DataBank’s flagship data center in the Dallas area.  The facility provides access to ten on-site carrier POPs and to the two other major Dallas metroplex carrier hotels. It is also connected to DataBank’s DFW1 and DFW2 facilities via data center interconnection (DCI) network, which enables active DRaaS solutions.

Located in the Legacy Park section of Plano, TX, DFW3 offers 24×7 network availability, carrier neutrality and unparalleled performance. In all, DFW3 is designed to accommodate a total of six data halls delivering 72,000 sq. ft of usable space and up to 40MW of total power from diverse utility feeds.

DFW3 also houses DataBank’s FedRAMP-certified cloud platform, which means the entire facility meets FedRAMP/FISMA auditing standards. Security measures at DFW3 include full perimeter fencing, round-the-clock on-site security personnel and dual-factor authentication (card and biometric) on exterior entry and all data center entrances. In addition to FedRAMP/FISMA, the facility meets a variety of key industry compliance standards, including HIPAA HITECH, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II, SSAE 18 and PCI DSS compliance designations.
