Netrality Data Centers has acquired the strategic Indy Telcom Center carrier hotel in Indianapolis.

Netrality now owns and operates carrier hotels in six markets across the US, with Indianapolis adding 205,000 sq ft and 11 buildings on a 9-acre campus dedicated to wholesale and powered shell tenants and fibre customers.

The campus features 13 metro network operators and seven long-haul network operators including Lumen, Crown Castle, Telia Carrier, Windstream, Zayo and US Signal. The current management team will remain in place.

Indy Telcom’s strategic Midwest location facilitates access to the fibre crossroads of America providing connectivity to Chicago, St. Louis, Columbus, Kansas City and Pittsburgh, making it a key data centre for telecom companies and enterprise customers.

Located in downtown Indianapolis (pictured), it is well protected from hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters.

“Indy Telcom Center is an exceptional campus that expands our ability to provide interconnection and strategic colocation to businesses dependent on ultra-low latency data processing across the Midwest,” said Gerald Marshall, chief executive officer of Netrality Data Centers.

Netrality now has a total of 100MW of capacity across seven data centres in six markets located in St. Louis, Kansas City, Houston, Philadelphia, Chicago and Indianapolis. The value of the Indianapolis acquisition has not been disclosed.
