DataBank Will Build NYC Region’s Fifth Data Center

Dallas-based DataBank has acquired 34 acres in Orangeburg, NY, north of New York City. The colocation provider will use the acreage to build the metro area’s fifth data center and augment capacity to meet the region’s accelerating demand for mission critical IT infrastructure. 

DataBank plans a 200,000-square-foot data center offering 30 megawatts of critical power via five 6-MW data halls. The new facility will be tethered to DataBank’s interconnected sites in New York City’s “Silicon Alley” neighborhood and New Jersey (60 Hudson St. and 111 Eighth Ave. In Manhattan and 165 Halsey St. In Newark), providing metro, regional and long-haul lit and dark fiber connectivity options.   

“The investment in this new campus responds to the New York City metro area’s need for colocation, connectivity, and cloud services, solidifying its status as a prime location for enterprise-class data centers,” said Raul K. Martynek, DataBank’s CEO.
