Dallas, TX – March 21, 2022 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announces the expansion of its San Diego Data Center facility, SAN1. The facility is located at 12270 World Trade Drive, San Diego.

The construction project will add two megawatts of critical power. A second phase of expansion is planned, which will add four additional megawatts, bringing the site’s total IT capacity to 7.5 MW.
