DataBank Adds Northern Virginia Fascility

DataBank To Add Additional Facility to Already Impressive Presence in Virginia’s “Data Center Alley”

“Data Center Alley” continues its super hot growth trajectory with a new build by DataBank. The company is adding to its already extensive lineup of high-performing data centers by breaking ground on a center in Northern Virginia. The new facility, IAD3, aims to deliver up to 40MW of power to the area, known for having the highest density of data centers in the northern part of the state. IAD3 will be joining 2 of DataBank’s existing centers in the area, specifically Ashburn and McClean, making the company’s presence anything but small. 

The volume of facilities isn’t the only defining feature of Data Center Alley. A significant part of the Dulles Technology Corridor, it also boasts the world’s densest fiber network and sees more than 70% of the world’s internet traffic passing through its infrastructure. 

“DataBank is investing extensively across our portfolio nationwide, and IAD3 represents a tremendous opportunity for our clients to take advantage of Ashburn’s location and proximity to 70% of the world’s Internet traffic. This Ashburn data center more than doubles our colocation footprint in Loudoun County, providing a high-quality colocation solution for cloud, content, technology and Fortune 500 customers,” – Raul Martynek, CEO of DataBank  

IAD3 isn’t just an extension of  DataBank’s physical infrastructure but also its commitment to sustainability and providing more eco-friendly operations. Data centers have historically held a negative sentiment toward their overall energy consumption, placing focus on answering the call for more sustainable operations in future builds. DataBank remains focused on answering this call with its centers, and IAD3 is no exception. 

DataBank is celebrating its latest addition with a groundbreaking event on Dec 1. With guests that include local dignitary Buddy Rizer, executive director of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, this is one celebration you won’t want to miss.
