Welcome to Pittsburgh, a city known for its history as a port and its ability to connect markets. But now, Pittsburgh has transformed into so much more. It has become a world-class hub for technology, research, and education. The heart of this transformation lies in the Pittsburgh Innovation District, where creativity and innovation thrive. In this district, you'll find prestigious institutions such as the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, which is home to the renowned Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Additionally, the district is proud to host UPMC.
But it's not just about innovation and education in Pittsburgh. This city also offers a low risk of natural disasters compared to the national average, making it a safe and dependable location. Not only that, but commercial power is cost-effective, making it an attractive choice for businesses.
When it comes to data services, DataBank is here to serve. In Pittsburgh, we offer two options: PIT1, our downtown data center, and PIT2, located in Summit Park. Both facilities provide top-notch power, cooling, connectivity, and security controls. PIT2, in particular, is an impressive site. It anchors our Summit Park Campus, boasting 17 acres of space and the potential for two additional data centers. This facility, conveniently located only 15 minutes from the airport, is positioned right across the street from a utility-owned substation. Recent improvements have made it the premier data center for scalable workloads in the metro area.
