Over the last few years, Chicago has risen to the top of the list for new datacenter deployments. Fortune 500 enterprises have taken full advantage of Chicago's extensive supply of skilled workers, competitively priced utility power, quality connectivity and tax incentives to build new datacenters. One such company, Dupont Fabros Technology Incorporated (NYSE: DFT), has been successful in deploying a state-of-the-art, 485,000 square foot facility in Elk Grove Village. "DFT" as we call it internally, simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated - for your benefit we've created a datasheet available at the bottom of the page which includes pictures.
Recognizing increased demand, ColoCrossing chose to re-locate its Chicago based datacenter operations in early 2009 from 350 East Cermak (downtown), to Dupont Fabros in Elk Grove Village (8 miles from Chicago O'Hare airport). Since that time, ColoCrossing has been able to provide timely and effective service deployments ranging from dedicated servers, to super high density colocation.
