DataBank is expanding its IND1 data center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Located on West Henry Street, the company will add 6,500 square feet of raised floor space and an additional megawatt of power to the facility.

The 54,000 sq ft (5,000 sqm) facility was previously listed as having 4MW of power and 10,000 sq ft (929 sqm) of raised floor, and is located close to the company's 10MW IND2 data center.

“DataBank’s expansion in Indianapolis affirms the city’s growing importance in the data center market,” said Danny Allen, VP of engineering at DataBank.

“The region’s accessibility, quality of life, and business-friendly climate are attracting technology companies and talent, making it a natural data center location option for those in the Midwest. DataBank has demonstrated its commitment to the metro Indianapolis area by investing heavily in the Henry Street area. ND1 represents our latest expansion, and if market response is any indication, it will not be our last expansion in the area.”

DataBank established the IND1 and IND2 facilities via the acquisition of Lightbound in late 2018.

The company completed its acquisition of zColo earlier this year, and recently issued more than $750m of secured data center revenue notes which the company said would not only be used to reduce its financing costs but also build and/or buy more data centers.
