ServerCentral Adds Data Center

CHICAGO -- ServerCentral, Chicagos leader in managed data center solutions, is expanding its area operations by adding a high power density data center in suburban Elk Grove Village, IL. The brand new facility is operated by DuPont Fabros Technology, a leading owner, developer, operator and manager of wholesale data centers. ServerCentral holds a long-term lease for 10,000 square feet of raised floor space, with the option to quickly expand into additional space as needed.

With the addition of this Tier III+ data center to its Chicago footprint, ServerCentral provides customers substantial expansion capacity for high-density installations in cabinets and private cages, plus reliable and redundant connections to its global backbone network. Key features of the colocation space include a power density of over 200 watts per square foot with isolated and redundant electrical bus feeds, N+2 redundancy on all critical systems, and low-latency peering, transit and metro area transport.

“I’m excited to find a Chicago-area facility that will allow us to truly meet customer needs both present and future,” said Jordan Lowe, ServerCentral President and CEO. “While many options exist in the market today, the technical leadership exhibited by DuPont Fabros in this facility really impressed me. Significant efforts were made to choose environmentally conscious technologies in the design of the building, including UPS systems free of chemical batteries, advanced mechanical system automation and higher voltage throughout the building’s power distribution.” Lowe said.
