US colocation operator DataBank has unveiled plans for the fourth expansion of its Dallas Fort Worth Data Center, DFW3.

This development, located in Plano, TX near Legacy Park, the fastest growing area within the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, provides an additional 22,000 square feet of space to the DFW3 data centre and 3MW of power, and will be known as Data Halls 5 and 6.

The company expects to have the halls up and running by Q2 2022.

DFW3 is designed to accommodate a total of six data Halls delivering 144,000 square feet of facility space, expandable up to 72,000 square feet of usable space, and up to 40MW of total power from diverse utility feeds.

Tony Qorri, VP of Construction at DataBank, said: “This expansion is the fourth and fifth data halls to be added to our DFW3.

“DataBank remains focused on providing enterprise-class colocation, interconnection, and managed cloud services. By continuing to grow our capabilities in a technology-concentrated business area of Dallas, we can adhere to the growing demand of more enterprise-class data centres.”

The Dallas/Fort Worth is home to more than US$643.5 billion in combined Fortune 500 revenues.

The region is one of the most abundant data centre markets on the planet offering low-cost and steady power, tax incentives and a business-friendly environment.

DataBank today operates a colocation and edge infrastructure footprint of 60+ data centres and 20 interconnection hubs in 30 North American and European markets.
