Partnership Offers Industry-Leading Low Latency Edge Connectivity and Managed Hybrid Solutions in Chicago

ServerFarm and NYI are teaming up to support the rapid growth of latency-sensitive applications in the critical Chicago market related to edge, IoT, AI, and 5G. The new partnership will address a full spectrum of infrastructure needs for carriers, financial institutions, hyperscalers, and other businesses with ultra-low latency requirements.

From two Chicago data centers – ServerFarm’s CH1 facility at 840 S. Canal Street and NYI’s Oak Brook facility at 800/810 Jorie Boulevard – the partnership offers:

  • edge connectivity
  • high-touch hybrid solutions
  • limitless flexibility and scale
  • a standardized facilities management platform
  • cost-effective direct access to 350 East Cermak, the key interconnection hub in the Midwest

“Considering Chicago’s appetite to stay at the forefront of technological innovation, it’s clear that the area offers massive demand for what this partnership has to offer,” commented Avner Papouchado, CEO of ServerFarm. “ServerFarm’s unique blend of real estate plus data center and IT management powered by our efficiency-driving platform, InCommand, combined with NYI’s signature high-touch solutions and interconnection capabilities, will offer clients across both companies an unsurpassed level of infrastructure control, flexibility, scalability, and connectivity. We’re ensuring that companies no longer need to choose between high-touch or large-scale deployments, cost-effective or easy interconnection, controlled or flexible IT environments – no more tradeoffs.”

The partnership will serve the needs of clients ranging from small and medium enterprises to larger global organizations. ServerFarm clients can easily gain access to NYI’s comprehensive suite of managed hybrid solutions. Meanwhile, NYI clients with larger footprint requirements can seamlessly leverage ServerFarm’s high-density infrastructure and InCommand platform, which provides customers with end-to-end visibility and control over their IT and data center environments.

 “We’re thrilled to be part of the ServerFarm ecosystem which has a significant footprint not only in Chicago, but across the U.S. and into Europe,” says Phillip Koblence, NYI Co-Founder and COO. “It’s a win-win situation. With NYI’s acquisition of the Oak Brook facility, ServerFarm gains access to a full suite of managed hybrid solutions and low-cost interconnection capabilities that are particularly relevant to small and medium enterprise clients. We in turn gain the opportunity to provide our up-the-stack consultative solutions to ServerFarm’s larger footprint clients and to extend these offerings internationally to locations where ServerFarm has facilities.”
