Those that have been keeping up with our recent content know that we’re particularly interested in the industry dynamics and challenges around capacity. In an AI-dominated world with power-hungry applications and huge capacity demands, where and how are data centers sourcing these mission-critical resources?

Furthermore, as businesses become more mobile and agile, and as footprints grow and new endpoints must be reached, the role of interconnection has become equally as critical. How can organizations find their rich connectivity hubs — and how can providers deliver ecosystems that unlock new value for peers?

(To learn more about these two topics, don’t miss our recent blogs: New Peers, New Opportunities and Data Center Gridlock.)

Well, we know a thing or two about both these quandaries here at 1623 Farnam. In fact, our President and CEO, Bill Severn, recently caught up with JSA TV at ITW to talk about these two critical topics and more.

As it turns out, the secret to meeting capacity demands now is all about having the gift of foresight. We talk a lot about how 1623 Farnam has plenty of capacity to go around — and that’s because five years ago, we made a bet that any investment we made would pay dividends. It’s why we made a major building-wide upgrade with all new electrical and mechanical systems, new generators and more. This long runway is what enables our customers to get the capacity they need when they need it — which is a strong place to be in today’s strained market.

On the interconnection front, strategic investment and growth is the powerhouse too. Our on-site IX and rich ecosystem of peers owes its value to a carefully curated mix of content providers, carriers and eyeball networks. Not to mention, we always make sure there’s something on the horizon for our ecosystem to look forward to (hint hint: we have announcements coming soon).

Want to learn more about how we built 1623 Farnam’s current position and how we make sure we’re always taking care of our customers? Hear it straight from Bill’s mouth in this new interview:
