Our Genesee County, Michigan data center is strategically located at the intersection of the I-69 and I-75 corridor. Originally built by EDS as General Motor’s disaster recovery data center, we invested more than $1M in upgrades to provide secure, compliant enterprise-class cloud hosting, colocation, cloud backup, and disaster recovery  services.

The 32,500 square-foot hosting facility includes 22,500 square feet of raised 24-inch floor space and 10,000 square feet of furnished, power-protected workplace recovery space.

The Genesee County, Michigan data center is geographically separated from our other three Michigan data centers and our Indianapolis data center, which helps ensure ideal production, data protection and disaster recovery solutions. The NOC is staffed 24/7/365 so there is always someone watching over your systems.
