ServerCentral, Chicago’s leader in managed data center solutions has completed commissioning of an additional 1.3 megawatts of high-density colocation space in Elk Grove Village, a suburb of Chicago, IL. ServerCentral's expanded presence now includes 18,000 square feet and 2.6 megawatts of critical power for customer equipment. This Tier III+ facility is operated by DuPont Fabros Technology, a leading owner, developer, operator and manager of wholesale data centers.
Key features of this expanded colocation space include a sellable power density of 240 watts per square foot with an isolated redundant electrical topology and N+2 redundancy on all critical systems.

“With all the great feedback we've received from our customers about this location, I’m excited to continue our expansion into our second pod. The additional space ensures we will continue to meet their growth needs over the long term, in addition to welcoming customers into this amazing facility. Capturing the momentum of this building was the natural choice as it provides the strongest solution for our customers,” said Jordan Lowe, ServerCentral President and CEO.
