Why our colocation?

We let you shift your colocation investment to the cloud when your business needs it.
When you choose ServerCentral for colocation, you get more than just space, power and cooling in a data center. You get flexibility in a time when applications, business processes and entire organizations are moving to the cloud. When the time comes for you to do the same, we’ll help you, simply shifting your existing spend from colocation to cloud. Our job is to serve as the foundation for your success, whether that’s giving you colocation pricing free of hidden costs, 24/7/365 support or the flexibility to grow in the way that’s best for your business.

Regional

ServerCentral’s Colocation services provide organizations with premium data center space, power, cooling, network connectivity, and security services necessary for the operation of IT infrastructure requiring maximum uptime and availability. This service is provided within ServerCentral-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 Digital Realty Trust and Equinix in Chicago, IL. By default, critical power, environments and network connectivity are delivered in fully redundant configurations.

All ServerCentral-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. ServerCentral 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 exist- ing infrastructure to a ServerCentral facility or working with ServerCentral to provide a fully managed data center migration. ServerCentral provides comprehensive physical datacenter migrations leveraging 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 for the Customer. Customers can also opt to have ServerCentral Managed Services support the final environment.

The services delivered from the network core are 100Gigabit-enabled, offer disparate physical paths to each location, and are built using resilient, standards-based protocols.

Testimonials

CDW sells multi-million dollar cloud deals and asks ServerCentral to do 100% of the racking, stacking, and cabling. I mean these are multi-million dollar deals and we trust ServerCentral. I think that speaks volumes.
