DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, recently announced the groundbreaking of its ATL4 data center. The colocation facility will feature 200,000 square feet of raised floor space and four megawatts of power. Available power will eventually expand to 40 megawatts in support of the DataBank’s Universal Data Hall Design, which is ideal for hyperscalers, high-density computing, and high-performance computing workloads.

Located at 200 Selig Drive in Atlanta, ATL4 is adjacent to the Georgia Power substation to ensure reliable power for customers. The site is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Once completed, ATL4 will tether via dark fiber to DataBank’s ATL2 and ATL3 facilities, which house connectivity nodes from Zayo Networks and other providers for metro, regional, and long-haul interconnection.

“Brasfield & Gorrie is honored to contribute our mission critical construction experience to this project,” said vice president and division manager Dustin Smith. “The need for mission critical facilities has steadily grown, and Brasfield & Gorrie’s experience has grown right alongside that need. We’ve completed more than $1.3 billion of mission critical projects right here in Georgia. We are used to the attention to detail required to build a successful data center, and we’re grateful for the local trade contractors and other partners who are essential for that success.”
