DataBank Ltd., a Digital Bridge portfolio company and leading provider of business solutions for data center, cloud, interconnectivity and managed services, announces today that its CEO, Raul K. Martynek, will join a group of his executive peers on a panel at the DICE Southeast Data Center Investment Conference & Expo to be held in Atlanta, Georgia on February 27, 2018. Martynek, along with panel participants, will discuss the strategic development outlook of data centers in the Southeast region of the United States. Atlanta is at the epicenter of this surge in growth over the last 18 months with several announced projects, including DataBank’s development of a new 94,000 square foot data center, ATL1.
Located in Midtown Atlanta for anchor-tenant Georgia Institute of Technology, DataBank's ATL1 data center will serve as a HPCC (High-Performance Computing Center) and will house the Southern Crossroads (SOX) Internet2 node, providing high bandwidth connectivity to research and educational institutions throughout the Southeast and across the nation.
“We’re seeing an increased demand in what we in the industry refer to as edge markets, which are essentially emerging connectivity and content hubs like Atlanta,” states DataBank CEO Raul K. Martynek. “It’s all about finding markets with untapped potential. The partnership with Georgia Tech will provide an opportunity to enable collaboration and increase interaction with public and private sector actors in the Atlanta tech space.”
