US Signal adds second data centre in Indianapolis

US Signal, leading provider of cloud solutions, network connectivity, and data centre services, announces its acquisition of its second data centre in Indianapolis, one of fastest-growing Midwest tech ecosystems. The 9,600-square-foot, 2-megawatt facility is located at 6325 Morenci Trail and is the second US Signal data centre in the market.

“We are seeing increased demand for off-premises services and hybrid cloud solutions,” says US Signal COO John White. “The Morenci data centre will allow us to serve more customers in the emerging Indianapolis market while realising another step in our five-year plan to build additional digital infrastructure in our Midwest footprint.”

The new data centre will have 300 available cabinets along with 24/7 staffing and multi-level security. The facility will also feature US Signal’s Cloud Pod, enabling private and multi-tenant cloud hosting. Deploying this within a data centre and adjacent to client hardware enables customers to establish private connections to US Signal Cloud resources or direct connections to hyperscale providers.

All critical facility components at the Morenci data centre are redundant, and efficient cooling solutions will keep temperature and humidity levels consistent. The data centre is designed to Uptime’s Tier III standards and the site’s security includes storm and emergency response plans and multi-faceted recovery plans. The SSAE 18-audited, HIPAA-compliant, PCI-certified data centre can also serve as a secondary disaster recovery site or as a component of a hybrid IT strategy.

US Signal’s newest data centre will more than double its existing workforce in the market and will enable several miles of new fibre construction, adding to its existing footprint in the region. With multiple acres on the property there is room for significant expansion, and US Signal plans to add up to 600 additional cabinets as demand dictates.

“We are committed to building out our digital infrastructure over the next five years,” concludes White. “We’re building cloud, we’re building fibre, and we’re building data centres all to help our customers.”
