Denver, CO - DataBank announced today that it has purchased an existing facility at 6961 S. Quentin Street in Centennial, Colorado, which will become the company's fifth Denver data center.
The property contains a 108,000-square-foot light-industrial building that can be quickly converted to a data center, resulting in 75,000 square feet of elevated floor area and 15 megawatts of UPS power for enterprise, hyperscale, and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads. The first DEN5 construction will have one data hall with a raised floor area of 30,000 square feet and a power output of 6MW, with the ability to expand to two more data halls.
These new facilities will be located next to DEN2, which has been built since 2011.
Denver is an excellent example of a "second-tier" digital hub, with demand for data center space expanding as a result of local companies' needs.
In the tech business, Denver is a strong, growing market for start-ups and venture capital.
Denver is also a major fiber hub in the United States, serving as a primary relay point for West Coast backbones and end customers connecting to important Midwest and East Coast markets.
DataBank is owned by Digital Bridge, a real estate company with a vision for a converged digital infrastructure, integrating hyper-scale, colocation, modular data centers, small cell networks, and fiber to form a converged digital infrastructure.
The Den5 is the third expansion for DataBank in the past six weeks. On June 16, DataBank added 25,000sq feet of raised floor space in Pitsburg, and on 12 July, it announced the expansion of its DFW3 Data Center in Texas.
