DataBank is to expand its SNA2 data center in Irvine, California.
The company announced the expansion this week, which will add 24,000 square feet (2,200 sqm) of raised floor space and 4MW of critical power.
Located at 17400 Von Karman Avenue in Orange County, the site is listed as currently offering 4MW and 33,700 sq ft (3,100 sqm).
“Companies from Silicon Valley and other conventional tech hubs are expanding or relocating to this area,” said DataBank VP of Construction, Tony Qorri. “DataBank’s expansion affirms Irvine’s growing importance in the data center market. If technology growth trends are any indication, this will not be our last expansion in the Orange County area.”
DataBank operates two data centers in Irvine, both on Von Karman Avenue. Both were previously Latisys facilities which Zayo took over as part of the company’s $675 million acquisition in 2015; DataBank acquired Zayo’s zColo in 2020.
2022 has seen DataBank acquire a data center it was previously leasing outside Denver, Colorado, and acquire four data centers in Houston, Texas, from CyrusOne in a now-closed deal for $670 million. It also announced the expansion of its Las Vegas and San Diego data centers.
Last year DataBank went on an expansion spree after raising around $1 billion in secure notes across two raises, announcing plans to add more than 120,000 sq ft (11,000 sqm) and 15MW of capacity to existing locations.
