Through an article and virtual tour with RunReady Magazine, 1623 Farnam showed off their newly upgraded $40M Omaha data center. Previously unknown to many, the area of Omaha, Nebraska is increasingly being recognized for its data center and tech hubs. The area which was previously home to Fortune 500 companies Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffet’s multinational holding company now hosts multiple data centers for companies such as Google.
“Omaha has grown a lot because of these hyperscale data centers. Anybody that’s doing anything in fintech (financial technology) has a large presence in Omaha. And the reason is it’s the edge—it’s at the center. PayPal has a big campus here, and LinkedIn is in Omaha. So, it’s the place to be. There’s a lot of technology companies based in Omaha that people don’t know about.” – Todd Cushing, President of 1623 Farnam
Despite acquiring the nine-story facility in 2019, much of it was in desperate need of a transformation- and that’s exactly what 1623 Farnam did. From 2020-21, in the midst of COVID-19, the facility had all electrical and mechanical systems gutted and replaced, completely remodeling the facility to be highly automated. Through their partnership with NMC Cat, 1623 Farnam installed three 3512C diesel generators, allowing the company to provide first-class service, maximum uptime and superior data center and infrastructure support to customers.
