1623 Farnam announced the opening of its edge data center in Omaha, Nebraska.
The $40 million expansion includes significant upgrades to the facility’s electrical power infrastructure and increases colocation capacity by converting this fiber-rich carrier hotel into usable, high quality data center space.
This expansion supports the increase in demand for interconnected edge data centers, and comes after 1623 Farnam’s initial $10 million expansion last year to build out the facility’s fifth-floor space, which is nearing capacity.
The new construction will upgrade the facility’s interconnection capabilities by adding redundant internal cabling, exterior fiber vaults, mechanical feeds, and a new electrical system supplying 6MW of power to the facility.
With its partnership with Megaport, key cloud providers and international carriers such as Google Cloud, Telia Carrier and more, 1623 Farnam serves as a catalyst for cloud development, offering customers robust options for migrating their workloads. 1623 Farnam provides express connection to additional cloud services, including Azure and AWS.
