Midco Opens State-of-the-Art Data Center in Fargo

July 5, 2018 – Fargo, ND: Midco has opened its fourth – and arguably most sophisticated – data center in Fargo, ND. The 16,000-square-foot facility (expandable to 28,000 square feet) provides enhanced reliability with its superior facility design, while reinforcing Midco’s dedication to customers’ needs.

The data center is flood-averse, and it has an EF3 Rated Shell that can withstand 150 mph sustained wind speeds. Built to Tier III specifications, the Fargo data center has an additional delivery path for power and cooling – giving it what’s called a “concurrent maintainability site infrastructure.”

Here are a few more features of the new data center: 

  • Maintained Security: All entrances are maintained with mantraps and 24/7 security authentication.
  • Data Center Inner Ring: Protected data halls surround critical equipment at the center.
  • Carrier Neutral: A meet-me room provides a direct connection to the Midco Network and other carriers.
  • Energy Efficient: The ability to “free-cool” the facility helps reduce our energy footprint. 

The data center is a cost-effective way for businesses to secure critical data and their IT infrastructure. The facility will be available for business customers who need a partial rack, single rack or multiple rack rentals. Private, customizable suites or cage space will also be available.

Midco’s data centers are locally and wholly owned, providing easy and secure access to clients. Midco’s three other data centers are in Grand Forks, ND, Sioux Falls, SD, and Yankton, SD.
