Indianapolis-based Rack Bunker Data Centers LLC has announced plans to grow its digital colocation services to northwest Indiana. The minority-owned business provides small tech companies with space and support for computer servers.
Rack Bunker says it will open new space at Digital Crossroad, a wholesale data center provider located in Hammond.
“There was a natural fit for us at Digital Crossroad,” said Willie Pritchett, co-founder and managing partner of Rack Bunker. “We’re very excited to be continuing our company’s upward trajectory right here in our home state.”
The Indy-based tech firm is seeking authorization from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. FedRAMP is a US government program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
The company says DX-1 met all its requirements, including security, network connectivity and scalability.
“There’s a tremendous amount of exciting economic potential among the companies that Rack Bunker serves,” said John Greenwood, chief strategy officer with DX. “From local and state government to Fortune 500 firms, equipping these companies with Digital Crossroad’s capabilities will be a big catalyst for business growth.”
Rack Bunker plans to be operational at the DX-1 data center on May 1.
