Four Houston Data Centers and Hundreds of Customers Are Now Fully Operational on DataBank’s Service and Support Platforms
Dallas, TX – November 15, 2022 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, officially announced the completion of its migration of four CyrusOne Houston, TX, area data centers to DataBank’s edge colocation and interconnect platform. The announcement solidifies the 27th major metro market in DataBank’s U.S. portfolio and further expands what is already the largest edge infrastructure footprint in the country.
DataBank closed the $670 million acquisition of the four CyrusOne data centers in March. The four Houston facilities add more than 300,000 square feet of raised-floor data center capacity and offer 42.5 megawatts of power, bringing DataBank’s total portfolio to more than 65 facilities and more than 2.5M square feet of raised-floor data center capacity.
Under the terms of the March agreement, DataBank acquired the data center located at 4201 Southwest Freeway, formerly known as the CyrusOne Galleria, as well as the Houston West Campus, which is the metro’s primary interconnection point with over 30 fiber networks, 3,500 cross connects and public cloud on-ramps from AWS and Google. The campus is 20 minutes west of Downtown Houston and is home to three data centers formerly known as West I, West II, and West III, now known as HOU1, HOU2, and HOU3, respectively.
DataBank was able to complete the migration in just nine months with zero disruptions, extending its world-class service and support platforms to hundreds of new customers. This migration enables DataBank to address the increasingly diverse workloads of its enterprises and hyperscale customers in Houston and deliver upon its Data Center Evolved strategy, which focuses on providing customers broad geographic reach and moving their workloads and content closer to the edge.
“By quickly and efficiently migrating these Houston facilities and customer accounts onto our platforms, we have once again demonstrated our proven integration capabilities,” said Raul K. Martynek, DataBank’s CEO. “More importantly, we are now able to provide our newly acquired customers with the higher levels of service and support they deserve.”
