Irvine and the surrounding Orange County region have been a big draw for tech firms and tech startups due to the pool of graduates out of universities such as UC Irvine and other tech-focused institutions. When you factor in the burgeoning EV sector, Fortune 1000’s, and tech giants such as Google, Blackberry, and Oracle, there’s little doubt why this city is also known as the City of Innovation. DataBank is seizing upon all of this tech growth and opportunity with the recent expansion of its Tier III rated SNA2 data center in downtown Irvine.
To further meet the infrastructure needs of the booming California tech ecosystem, DataBank added 24,000 sq. ft. and 4MW of power to SNA2. This 2N power-designed, carrier-neutral interconnection hub is located at 17400 Von Karman Avenue in Orange County and is governed by the City’s Strategic Technology Plan, which promotes innovation and investments in cloud computing, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery.
“Companies from Silicon Valley and other conventional tech hubs are expanding or relocating to this area. DataBank’s expansion affirms Irvine’s growing importance in the data center market. If technology growth trends are any indication, this will not be our last expansion in the Orange County area.” – Tony Qorri, DataBank Vice President of Construction
Offering the ultimate uptime assurance, SNA2 features security measures that include dual-factor authentication, 7x24x365 staffing, mantrap, alarm, and CCTV. SNA2 is SSAE18, SOC1, SOC2, HIPAA, GLBA, and PCI-DSS compliant.
