NEW YORK (July 24, 2019) — Data Holdings, Midwest’s Premier Data Center, announces it has joined the Independent Data Center Alliance (IND-DCA), aligning to continue the advancement of independent data center operators. By joining the founding members of the Independent Data Center Alliance, Data Holdings will leverage its facilities to meet the growing demand for connected services in the global economy.
With more than 3 million data centers in the U.S. and a majority owned and operated by large entities or REITs, companies embracing digital transformation are challenged to find operators that provide flexibility, resiliency and reliability while also delivering redundancy, not only in facilities but in providers. The IND-DCA brings together global data center operators to promote the collective’s combined assets, showcasing global reach, proximity and accessibility for data center customers. In joining the IND-DCA, Data Holdings aligns forces to provide transcontinental data center reach across the U.S. in key markets including the Northwest, Missouri, Wisconsin, the greater Chicago market and New York as well as European locations including Amsterdam and Frankfurt.
“Data Holdings offers world-class co-location, disaster recovery, cloud and network solutions to local, national and international customers,” says Kurt O’Bryan, Chief Executive Officer at Potawatomi Business Development Corporation, the parent company of Data Holdings. “By joining the Independent Data Center Alliance, Data Holdings adds its strong midwest market position and unique value propositions to create a more effective and competitive marketplace.”
“We welcome Data Holdings to the IND-DCA as a stronghold in the midwest market serving the greater Chicagoland area,” comments Ilissa Miller, founder of the Independent Data Center Alliance. “Our mission is to provide members increased brand awareness through the extended reach and dissemination of information about the combined strengths of regionally proficient data centers throughout the world.”
