FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 6, 2016
South Bend, IN (May 6, 2016) – Global Access Point, LLC, a multi-site data center and network operator announced today it has assumed operations of Union Station Technology Center’s data center in South Bend, IN.
“We are incredibly excited about becoming the Master Operator of USTC,” said Chief Operating Officer Dr. Fimbel. “Global Access Point will continue to expand its world-class data center and network capabilities to complement USTC’s existing infrastructure. This move is integral as we continue to expand our efforts in the Renaissance District’s Studebaker campus. At the end of the day, Union Station and Studebaker Building 84 will be the flagships of our data center network, which extends across Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri.”
As part of their recent move, Global Access Point has brought on Dwayne Nethercutt as Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Nethercutt is a veteran in the data center and network industries with nearly two decades of experience. He holds industry certifications from Cisco, Microsoft, Juniper, Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), and Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC).
“More closely aligning Global Access Point and Union Station made a lot of sense,” said Mr. Nethercutt. “As a top 40 carrier hotel nationally, Union Station is connected to a large number of international telecommunications carriers. Combine that with Global Access Point’s operational track record and network capabilities expanding into the Renaissance District and we have one of the top data center operations in the state of Indiana.”
