Chicago Datacenter

At our CHI1 facility, you will have the lowest possible latency to the core of many financial, healthcare, and media providers! Direct cloud connections and a mix of carrier neutral connections will ensure you'll always have a strong global connection.

We've positioned ourselves in the heart of the Chicago datacenter economy - the CH1 Datacenter from Netrality. With dark fiber to the legendary 350 East Cermak datacenter in Chicago, this provides us an almost limitless number of transit providers and peering partners, including the Google Cloud Exchange. To ensure the best possible connection and availability we leverage in house and on net providers that bring another layer of even more connectivity that is unmatched.
