The Silicon Review
“Data Holdings facility is designed to meet the individual and varied needs of each customer – from SMB’ to financial services to Fortune 500 companies, to casinos.”
Modern technology is giving us unprecedented capabilities to attain what was previously deemed impossible. If you can imagine it, there’s probably an app that works it out.
Similarly, applications need to evolve, and businesses need to modernize as customers grow in sophistication and embrace digital technologies, but new innovative capabilities also mean that workloads are getting more data-intensive.
For businesses seeking to manage these exponentially increasing workloads, it all starts with the data center. It has a crucial role to play in any business that has a robust digital transformation strategy.
In view of the above-mentioned scenario, we’re thrilled to present Data Holdings (DH).
Founded by the Potawatomi Business Development Corporation (PBDC) in 2013, DH has established itself as one of the nation’s premier data centers. With a Tier III+ infrastructure and a national footprint, DH offers a full suite of services to organizations looking for the best possible partner in the industry.
