DataBank Opens Salt Lake City Data Center

This is the Company’s Fifth Facility in the Area, Providing a Secure, Robust Option for West Coast Customers in the “Silicon Slopes” 

DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, connectivity and managed services, announces the opening of its fifth Salt Lake City data center (SLC5) in the fast-growing “Silicon Slopes” area of the country.  

The 23-acre Granite Point Campus is in Bluffdale, Utah — an engine for digital growth that bolsters the region’s nickname.   It’s the 20th data center the company has opened in its nine metropolitan markets.

SLC5 is strategically located in Bluffdale, UT, an area of low natural disaster risk, making it an ideal backup and recovery location for customers looking for an alternative to data centers in Los Angeles or San Francisco. The center’s combination of power, network, facilities, and the convenience and peace-of-mind of a campus setting ensure that DataBank’s SLC5 is the ideal data center for the high-performance computing, content providers, cloud giants, hyperscale providers and large enterprises. The campus features its own 66MW, N+1 substation guaranteeing lower costs and scalability needed for the most ambitious enterprises and hyper-scale cloud ventures.

Utan’s accessibility, quality of life and business-friendly climate make the region a legitimate data center option for those on the West Coast, so much so that DataBank is already considering beginning construction on another facility in the region. 

SLC5 also features 50,000 sq ft of raised-floor space, 13 MW of total power availability, a comprehensive suite of Colocation, Cloud, Connectivity, and Managed Services, and has been designed from the ground up with a full suite of customer amenities and all the security features needed to meet HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SSAE-18 SOC1 and SOC2, GDPR, and FedRAMP compliance requirements.
