Robust Power Grid
Data Realty Northern Indiana has one of the strongest power infrastructures in the Midwest, featuring multiple layers of redundancy and a grid structure independent of the Chicago metropolitan area.
The data center is serviced by two substations, each of which have a minimum of two 138 kVA feeds - so even if one should fail, an entirely separate infrastructure will be online to preserve your systems.
We have an excellent relationship with our power provider, American Electric Power (AEP), who is supportive of our growth and has committed to supply power to meet our needs all along the former Studebaker corridor.
In addition to our region offering some of the lowest power costs in the nation, we are able to purchase power at an even lower tariff rate because we operate and maintain our own redundant transformers. This allows us to transfer operational savings to customers at substantially lower power and cooling costs.
The Studebaker Legacy
Once again, the former Studebaker corridor is leading the way forward with a new generation of technology. The robust and redundant manufacturing power infrastructure that was left behind was the perfect place for a world class data center. Studebaker left South Bend 50 years ago and the grounds and buildings sat empty until 2010 when Data Realty opened the Northern Indiana data center in South Bend’s new technology campus, Ignition Park.
