DataBank expands its local data center footprint

Minneapolis is about to get more connected.
DataBank, a colocation firm that's headquartered in Dallas but boasts a significant Minneapolis presence, recently announced that it will expand its footprint here, based on the acquisition of an Edina data center once owned by tech firm VeriSpace.
Planned for two phases, and with construction already underway, the expansion will boost the facility's size to about 17,500 square feet, and will include more cooling functionality and uninterrupted power supply features. The project will also involve updates to the office space areas, as well as revamped customer areas where DataBank will maintain client technology.
The company acquired VeriSpace in March, as part of an effort to broaden its reach into new markets. DataBank provides managed data center services, with a particular focus on 100 percent uptime availability for data, applications, and equipment.
Company CEO Tim Moore notes that the Edina expansion came as a result of customer demand, and that the company worked quickly to meet the need.
Although the expansion will add a significant amount of data center space to the city, Moore believes that this is just the beginning when it comes to the company's presence in the Twin Cities.
"This expansion only represents the first step in our overall process in this market," he says, "with more to come."
