Dallas #2 Cloud Hosting

Our second Dallas datacenter is located in the downtown Databank facility at 400 S. Akard Street in the central business district, convenient to retail, restaurant and hotels. The property is completely equipped to handle mission critical data center operations, and business enterprises that find it advantageous to locate within a high-security, state-of-the-art venue.

The seven-story building was originally completed in 1921 to house the United States Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. The Beaux Arts-style limestone building established Dallas as a center for economic development in the Southwest prior to World War I. Its distinctive architectural style and detailing led the city of Dallas to designate the building a historic landmark in 1979.

In 2000, an expert telecom development team carefully renovated the building, taking advantage of its inherent security features to create the ideal real estate solution for the technology industry. The building offers maximum connectivity, a robust, redundant power supply and approximately 300,000 square feet ideally suited for telecom, enterprise data centers, disaster recovery and related critical IT operations.
