The city of Springfield, Birthplace of Route 66 and Queen City of the Ozarks, is home to many in the Midwest, including the Bluebird Underground Data Center. The Bluebird Underground Data Center is located right here in Springfield, at 1904 N. LeCompte. The facility is surrounded by solid limestone and buried 85 feet underground, guarding your data and hardware from natural and man-made disasters. We’ll offer you peace of mind from tornadoes, floods and other extreme weather conditions.
To make the most of our surrounding environment, all critical infrastructure is located underground, ensuring every part of the data center is equally protected. Even among underground data centers, this design is unique and reinforces our 100% uptime guarantee. N+1 redundancies and battery backups offer further support to the Bluebird Underground Data Center in emergency events.
Another advantage of being underground is the ability to control the data center environment. The Bluebird Underground Data Center remains at a natural temperature of 64-68 degrees F year-round, with a looped chilled water supply and cooling units to help maintain consistent humidity set points. Air sampling systems and hot/cold aisle technology balances the surroundings within individual rack spaces, giving your equipment the optimal performance environment.
All processes within the Bluebird Underground Data Center are reviewed annually in accordance with SOC 2 Type 2 certification requirements. This audit holds the Bluebird Underground Data Center to a consistent standard, supporting a guaranty for privacy, availability, security, processing integrity and confidentiality of the facility. The Bluebird Underground Data Center is committed to providing the highest-quality data center solutions and upholding our motto to be “Below ground; Above standards.”
The Bluebird Underground Data Center is supported by Bluebird Network, a Midwest Regional Telecommunications company. Bluebird Network provides data center customers a high-speed Internet connection, through our state-of-the-art fiber optic network that runs in and out the data center and offers transport and data services throughout the facility. Our network consists of over 135 POPs, allowing your data to travel throughout the Midwest. Our partnership with INDATEL extends our network nationally.
