DataBank bolsters edge data center footprint with acquisition of Las Vegas facility

Edge colocation and managed cloud service provider DataBank has completed the acquisition of 7185 Pollock Drive in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is the company’s LAS1 edge data center.

With the recent expansion project complete, DataBank’s LAS1 edge data center facility now features 36,800 of raised square feet and 3.55MW of critical IT load power.

Previously owned by the Thomas & Mack Development Group, the company notes that the LAS1 data center has an interconnection hub to provide access to five onsite carriers and fiber built into the facility with redundant entry paths.

“DataBank’s investment in this property aligns with our strategy of owning the largest edge data center footprint in the U.S.,” says Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank.

“By completing this purchase, DataBank is responding to Las Vegas’ need for colocation, connectivity, and cloud services. We are solidifying our status as a prime location for mission-critical workloads serving the Las Vegas area.”

The company says that the rationale behind the purchase of the data center was to further its strategy of owning and controlling the real estate beneath its data centers.

DataBank lists some of the qualities that make Las Vegas a desirable location to acquire a data center facility, which includes low sales taxes, no state income tax, and a fast-growing entertainment and technology sector.

The city also continues to experience high demand for mission-critical IT infrastructure, according to DataBank. In total, DataBank has 69 data centers including one facility in the United Kingdom.

The company’s LAS1 data center hub will provide valuable capacity to meet the need for high-performance computing, enterprise and edge applications, and hyperscale workloads.

In 2023, the company closed on the sale of its five data centers in France, known as “zColo France SAS,” to Etix Everywhere, an edge data center provider in Europe and Asia.
