Indianapolis is known for quite a few notables, and being among the fastest-growing tech ecosystems in the Midwest is one. In fact, according to Forbes, the city is #5 in creating the most tech jobs in the country.
Indianapolis: A Growing Market
The need for colocation, connectivity, and cloud services is on the rise in Indianapolis due to its increase in population and the growing number of large tech companies that have relocated there. It’s a desirable location with its low cost of living and utility power, and its business-friendly environment, it’s no wonder numbers are on the rise.
DataBank currently has two data centers housed in the heart of Indianapolis, IND1 and IND2, both on West Henry Street and just a couple minutes walk from each other. Both of these data centers are carrier hotels and combine for more than 46,500 square feet of data center space. They also provide local access to more than 17 top-tier carriers, giving customers a flexible path to scale compute resources.
Indianapolis is a prime data center location option for the Midwest. The region offers a business-friendly climate, accessibility, and desirable quality of life, attracting technology companies increasingly. Indianapolis is an important player in the growing data center market and is a reason why DataBank expanded its IND1 data center in 2021. –
Prime Location and Renewable Power
Not only do the two DataBank Indianapolis data centers offer prime locations, but they have also moved 100% of their combined electricity usage into a voluntary program directing Indianapolis Power and Light to purchase renewable energy from wind farms and other midwestern facilities. This carbon offset is astonishing; equaling 3,321 passenger cars driven for one year. The development of additional renewable energy sources is made possible by DataBank’s participation in this program.
