Company summary

The data center market has changed. Until recently data center operators believed that power, ping, and pipe was sufficient – and it was. However, the IT landscape has changed and customer needs have evolved. Increased diversity of workloads with the use of public and private cloud, and new security and compliance regimes, all have made traditional vanilla space and power offerings obsolete for most enterprise users. Managing support across a fragmented vendor landscape made ensuring uptime, and keeping everyone on the same page, more difficult and time consuming. Enterprise customers do not want multiple vendor relationships in an increasingly hybrid world where colocation, public cloud and private cloud environments need to work in harmony.

DataBank recognized this, and that is why we have created the Data Center Evolved. We’ve invested in the infrastructure, people and frameworks that allow you to configure the solution that best fits your business needs. Whether it’s a mission critical never go-down colocation environment, a PCI-DSS compliant private cloud, or a secure on-ramp to multiple public cloud availability zones, DataBank has engineered its data center platform to provide the flexibility, security, and uptime you need. The essence of this evolution is evident in our flexible customer-centric configuration of locations, platforms, solutions, and service. Our focus on service is manifest in our sophisticated support Portal that links together teams and systems in a seamless environment.

This is what we mean by Data Center Evolved. Rather than the customer revolving around the data center, our offerings revolve around you. At DataBank, our team of expert professionals understand the changing landscape that enterprises face in managing their critical IT requirements. We examine these challenges and then help resolve them by weaving a solution into a coherent offering at the price and performance level you seek. Let DataBank be your trusted advisor and help craft the hybrid solution that is right for you. This is the Data Center Evolved.
