Latisys to Add High-Density Data Center Capacity in Suburban Chicago

Oak Brook Data Center Campus to Build Out 24,600 Square Feet of Raised Floor Featuring 3.6 Megawatts of Critical Power

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- Responding to increasing enterprise demand for its mission critical data center services outside downtown Chicago, Latisys, a leading provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, today announced plans to build out an additional 24,600 square feet of high-density data center space at its Oak Brook, Illinois data center campus 30 miles west of downtown Chicago.

The new build out will create CHI-06 and will be part of Latisys' Chicago datacenter campus, a 148,000 square foot purpose-built Tier III facility. CHI-06 will open later this year and will feature 3.6 megawatts of critical power.

Latisys' Oak Brook data center campus serves as the Midwest hub of Latisys' unified and compliant national platform of high-density data centers -- which includes Denver as an ideal Disaster Recovery site and Southern California and Northern Virginia as gateways to Asia Pacific, Europe and South America. More than 800 enterprises and government organizations rely on Latisys as a trusted provider of critical IT infrastructure solutions that underpin their business.

"This is the latest in a series of Latisys investments both nationally and in the Western suburbs of Chicago," said Glenn Ford, Senior Analyst with 451 Research. "Latisys has a range of services with the ability to offer hybrid solutions that span datacenter colocation, managed hosting and cloud. The addition of 24,000 square feet of enterprise quality datacenter space reflects both accelerating demand for outsourcing and constrained capacity in and around Chicago."

CHI-06 will be tied directly to existing fiber carriers in the buildings and monitored 24x7x365 by on-site NOC personnel and systems. Latisys engages external audit firms to perform annual assessments to support customers' diverse compliance requirements. These accredited examinations span SOC 2, SOC 3, PCI DSS and HIPAA--affirming Latisys' commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security.

"Chicago's western suburbs have arrived as an attractive alternative for downtown enterprises seeking additional capacity and data center resiliency, making this region a critical hub for our unified data center services platform," said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys. "We look forward to expanding our Chicago presence while collaborating closely with enterprise customers focused on highly secure and scalable IT infrastructure solutions that deliver significant business value."

Latisys' Oak Brook data center campus delivers key features to meet a variety of critical business drivers for the enterprise:

  • Full suite of managed cloud services including managed hosting, managed storage, server virtualization, backup, replication and security services
  • Capacity to meet increasing demand for power and space among Chicago-based organizations whose existing capacity has been reached
  • Key proximity to downtown Chicago and CME, offering organizations in the Central Business District and surrounding areas latency as low as sub 1ms
  • Flexible, tailored solutions to meet the dynamic needs of today's nimble businesses who seek a single partner that can right-size solutions both for today and for tomorrow
  • End-to-end IT outsourcing platform spanning colocation, private managed cloud hosting and on demand cloud services -- with the flexibility to tailor solutions to complex requirements and changing needs

With high-density data centers located in every U.S. time zone, Latisys' national reach enables multi-site redundancy, managed backup and secure disaster recovery including cloud-based DR solutions. Latisys' Tier III facilities are designed for the business continuity of mission-critical operations -- offering the power, cooling, backbone network and managed services with an eye toward reducing capital expenditures for storage and ongoing maintenance.
