Tony Qorri, Vice President of Construction at DataBank said,
« DataBank originally acquired this data center site from legacy Kio. The customer demand was already there at that time, and the region continues to gain the attention of startups and tech companies looking for access to major markets. We see this as a great opportunity to meet the needs of customers who are relying on first-class IT infrastructure to gain traction in the booming San Diego metro. »
