DataBank, Ltd has announced a 15,000 sq ft expansion of data centre capacity for its premier Minneapolis/Saint Paul-area facility located in Eagan, Minnesota.

The completion of the site's third data hall, scheduled to open in September, will increase the facility's overall footprint to over 40,000 sqft of white-floor data center space.

The purpose-built building opened in May of 2015, MSP-2 and is one of two data centre locations the company currently operates in the region to offer enterprise businesses redundancy and uptime availability.

With over a dozen on-site network providers with diverse entry routes, the building serves a dual-role as a premier enterprise class multi-tenant colocation facility as well as a regional carrier-hotel and peering hub.

DataBank's MSP-2 is Tier-III certified by the Uptime Institute for both its design and construction and delivers some of the highest specifications available in a multi-tenant data centre in the State of Minnesota.

“We are very pleased with the continued growth in the Minneapolis market,” said Kevin Ooley, President of DataBank.

“The MSP-2 data center is rapidly becoming an important hub for regional interconnection and peering. We are seeing strong growth from our existing customers and the quality of the location and design has allowed us to support the needs of regional enterprise businesses looking for premier colocation and cloud services.”

In addition to DataBank's two Minneapolis-area sites, the company also operates data centres in Dallas, Kansas City, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Salt Lake City.
