DataBank expands Kansas City data centre

Data centre provider DataBank is expanding its KC3 data centre in Kansas City in the United States, continuing its carbon footprint investment

DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, has announced it is expanding its Kansas City Data Center, KC3, facility in Kansas City, continuing its investment in expanding its footprint and capabilities to meet growing demand in the region.

With the expansion of its Kansas City KC3 facility, the company establishes two new data halls, including 9,300 sq ft in Data Hall 2 and 8,050 sq ft in Data Hall 3. Each hall will be filled with nominally 1MW of 2N redundant electrical infrastructure and HVAC equipment required to cool the space.

“With the expansion of our KC3 facility, we will be building out Data Halls 2 and 3. The scope of the project includes adding 9,300 sq. ft. in Data Hall 2 and 8,050 sq. ft. in Data Hall 3 and adding an additional 2MW of capacity to the building,” said Tony Qorri, Vice President of Construction for DataBank. “Kansas City is a market where we have demand and we’re looking to max out that facility by building out the other two data halls. This is a significant expansion that will triple the sellable white space across the footprint of the entire facility.”

“DataBank has been a foundational business partner in the Kansas City tech community,” said Tim Flynn, regional vice president of midwest sales for DataBank. “This expansion demonstrates our commitment to the market and belief in its vitality today and in the future.”

Ranked in a CNBC study as one of the top areas for business, Kansas City is in the heart of Silicon Prairie and is an increasingly popular location for data centre companies. This combination of power, network, facilities, and the convenience and peace of mind ensure that DataBank’s Kansas City KC3 is the ideal data centre for high-performance computing for content providers, cloud giants, hyperscale providers, and large enterprises.

In addition, due to the multiple diverse sources for local energy generation, including coal, nuclear, and wind, the area offers reliable, low-cost energy to customers.
