Welcome to the RACK59 blog!

We can’t wait to share our story with you and learn about what everyone else has to offer.

Our first steps today are to tell you something about RACK59, this blog and what’s coming soon.

RACK59 is Oklahoma City’s largest data storage center, with more than 30,000 square feet of data storage in one of Oklahoma City’s most unique and important industrial sites. As part of the OKCWorks campus, RACK59 has a deep history and a nearly limitless potential in its future.

RACK59 is located in the former Lucent Technologies center just off Interstate 40 (and now just across the street from Oklahoma City’s new outlet mall) which gives the data center its unparalleled security and structure to help its customers. With its own on-site power sub-station, multiple levels of security and a state-of-the-art environmental controls, RACK59 is committed to excellence for clients.

And that’s where the name comes in.

What does RACK59 mean? The 59 stands for the gold standard of the data storage business – uptime of 99.999% availability. Thus five nines.

RACK59’s commitment is not just to excellence but also to the community. We want to build this blog up as a hub for news, profiles and features about what’s happening in the Oklahoma City tech community, from the upstart innovator to established companies.

Coming in the next few weeks will be Q&As with local tech stars, the story of the long history of our building and more about the latest news about data storage, information privacy and how it impacts business
