DataBank has announced the grand opening of KC3, a Tier III data center facility based in Kansas City.
The grand opening event, set for May 15th, will feature former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Eddie Kennison, who will offer wine tastings from his Barrel 87 Club.
DataBank will also have a raffle, food, and opportunities to network with business leaders. Group tours of the new data center will also be available.
KC3 is DataBank’s third data center location in the greater Kansas City area, completing a high-speed optical metro transport ring in a region with growing demands for connectivity. With private fiber rings linking KC3 to DataBank’s KC1 and KC2 facilities, plus large carrier hotels in the market, KC3 provides optimal connectivity to the region.
The site is a true enterprise-class facility, with redundant power and cooling configurations, diverse network entry points and multiple fiber providers to deliver exceptional network resiliency and uptime.
The campus, which spans more than seven acres, currently has a 44,000 square foot data center with 25,000 square feet of raised floor, that can potentially be expanded to more than 100,000 ft. of raised floor space. 12MW of total power will be available to the expanded site, with critical load capability of 4-6MW.
KC3 also meets stringent, secure and compliant solutions for mission critical businesses, including HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SSAE-18, and GDPR. DataBank customers can leverage onsite amenities including a loading dock, office workspace, conference rooms, client labs, tech space, secure storage, break room and staging areas.
The site will be staffed with 24×7 on-site security and operations teams. KC3 offers customers direct access to the DataBank’s CloudPlus platform, as well as a full suite of managed services, disaster recovery and storage offerings.
