Dallas, TX – April 20, 2022 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announced today the expansion of its SNA2 data center in Irvine, CA, helping to support the region’s growing technology ecosystem.

Located at 17400 Von Karman Avenue in Orange County, DataBank’s SNA2 downtown Irvine facility is governed by the City’s Strategic Technology Plan.
