HAMMOND, IN – March 19, 2021 – Digital Crossroad (DX), a wholesale colocation provider serving the Chicagoland market, is pleased to announce it has been selected by Indianapolis-based Rack Bunker, a minority-owned colocation provider, after the company conducted a national search for an ideal location for its expansion.
Digital Crossroad’s economic and environmental sustainability initiatives helped put the data center ahead of competitors from places like Chicago, Dallas and others. Additionally, the DX-1 data center met all of Rack Bunker’s requirements for security, network connectivity, scalability, flexibility, and reliability.
“Welcoming a great Hoosier firm like Rack Bunker to our data center keeps the momentum going strong for Indiana business. We’re thrilled to have been selected for the next chapter of their success,” said Thomas P. Dakich, managing member with DX.

As officials were searching for an expansion site, they chose the DX-1 data center because it met all of their technical requirements while also offering the added benefits of Indiana’s business strengths.
“There was a natural fit for us at Digital Crossroad,” said Willie Pritchett, co-founder and managing partner of Rack Bunker. “We’re very excited to be continuing our company’s upward trajectory right here in our home state.”
