DataBank to increase capacity of SAN1 San Diego data center

March 22, 2022
The colocation and data center services provider expects two expansion phases will add floor space and power to the facility.

DataBank has revealed plans to expand its SAN1 data center at 12270 World Trade Drive, San Diego. The colocation and data center services provider expects two expansion phases will add floor space and power to the facility.

The first expansion phase will see the addition of 40,000 square feet of raised floor space, nearly tripling the data center’s current space to a total of 60,000 square feet. DataBank also will add 2 MW of critical power. The second phase will add another 4 MW to bring the site’s total IT capacity to 7.5 MW.

SAN1 is a Tier III carrier-neutral interconnection hub with access to more than 10 on-site carriers and what DataBank describes as “many Internet, fiber, interconnect, and cross-connect options.” The facility’s security features include dual-factor biometric authentication, video surveillance, 7x24x365 staffed security, mantrap, CCTV, and bulletproof glass in the lobby.

“DataBank originally acquired this data center site from legacy Kio,” says DataBank Vice President of Construction Tony Qorri. “The customer demand was already there at that time, and the region continues to gain the attention of startups and tech companies looking for access to major markets. We see this as a great opportunity to meet the needs of customers who are relying on first-class IT infrastructure to gain traction in the booming San Diego metro.”
