Regional

SCTG Colocation provides organizations with premium data center space, power, cooling, network connectivity, and security services necessary for operating IT infrastructure that requires maximum uptime and availability. This service is provided within SCTG-operated data centers in Elk Grove Village, IL and Chicago, IL. Data center facility partners include Digital Realty Trust in Elk Grove Village, IL and both Digital Realty Trust and Equinix in Chicago, IL. By default, critical power, environmentals, and network connectivity are delivered in fully redundant configurations.

All SCTG-operated data centers are carrier-neutral. This ensures customers will be able to connect to any carrier in the facility and take advantage of changes in the carrier marketplace, as it evolves. Termination & demarcation points for carriers are generally installed in a common meet-me room (MMR) in each facility. For security, consistent management, and operational stability, Customers are not allowed to install direct connections into MMRs. SCTG offers services to extend the demarcation point from the MMR to Customer equipment installed in Cabinets and Cages, giving Customers access to the various carrier services.

Colocation customers have the option of migrating existing infrastructure to a SCTG facility or working with SCTG to provide a fully managed data center migration. SCTG provides comprehensive physical data center migrations that leverage internal staff and resources. Migration services generally include physical inventory & documentation, written assessments of the work to be performed, project management, planning & execution of the migration, and knowledge transfer.
