AlteredScale provides data center solutions in a 25,000 sq. ft. carrier-neutral facility, located at 601 W. Polk, Chicago. The data center is Tier III compliant and SSAE 16 Type II certified. AlteredScale can accommodate the stringent IT requirements of enterprise and technology companies.

“Chicago is a big market for Peak and because of our growing channel base there, it hasforget-iaas-vs-paas-devs-adopting-cloud-services-now spurred 25% growth year over year,” says Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of Peak. “AlteredScale, a long term Peak partner, reinforces our model of low latency design and of connecting our partners and ultimately their end-users to the nearest cloud point of presence. This all works to further our high rankings on CloudSleuth and other cloud computing rating entities.”
