Just as Chicago is known for its iconic skyscrapers, famous landmarks and Navy Pier, it is also well-established as an important digital infrastructure hub. Elk Grove Technology Park caters to technology-driven tenants and is the center of a national fiber-optic system.
T5 Data Centers (T5), the telecommunications industry’s only full lifecycle data center partner, announced last week the final 20MW of available capacity at T5@Chicago in Elk Grove. T5 is the only provider with 20MW of available capacity as a turnkey offering in the highly constrained Chicago market.
In the second phase of its development at its 164,000 square-foot, carrier-neutral data center in Chicago, the company leased 11.5 MW to a globally recognized financial institution. Phase 1 is completely leased by two Fortune 100 tenants.
“T5 continues to build on its reputation of serving the world’s leading companies. Our customers could have chosen any data center in the increasingly competitive Chicago data center market, and we believe the fact they chose to go with us is a reflection of the industry-leading facilities, infrastructure, and full life-cycle support services available at T5@Chicago,” said Craig McKesson, Chief Customer and Marketing Officer at T5.
In an increasingly connected marketplace, T5@Chicago offers several significant advantages:
- Access to more than 15 telecom providers
- Direct cloud on-ramps
- Carrier-neutral environment
- 24/7 on-site security, including advanced biometric access control and physical and digital security barriers and protocols
- An industry-leading facility management and operations team
- Unique tax exemptions
