ServerCentral Officially Opens Doors to State-of-the-Art Data Center Space

Chicago’s leading provider of managed IT infrastructure services announces the grand opening of their 2.6-megawatt and 20,000 square-foot data center expansion in Elk Grove Village, IL.

Online PR News – 23-February-2012 – – ServerCentral, Chicago’s leading provider of colocation, cloud, IP connectivity, and managed services, announced today the opening of their 2.6-megawatt and 20,000 square-foot data center expansion in Elk Grove Village, IL. This is ServerCentral’s third expansion there since April 2009, bringing their total footprint within the Tier III facility to over 40,000 square feet and 5.5 megawatts of critical load.

“With all the great feedback we've received from our customers about this location, I’m excited to continue our momentum within this facility,” said Jordan Lowe, ServerCentral President and CEO.

Key features of the expansion include an average power density of 275 watts per square foot, as well as an isolated and redundant electrical topology. The facility’s power, UPS system, and HVAC systems are rated at a minimum of N+2, which means that for each system, there are two backups ensuring ongoing functionality. The expansion also includes the deployment of Juniper EX8216 Ethernet Switches, effectively quadrupling ServerCentral's capacity to deliver its high-performance IPv4 and IPv6-native transit and metro Ethernet services over 10-gigabit Ethernet.

This expansion will also support ServerCentral’s expanding cloud portfolio, including its new High Performance Cloud platform set for release in April. Together with their colocation, managed services, network services, and dedicated private clouds, this latest addition will round out one of the most comprehensive infrastructure portfolios available anywhere.

To kick off the opening of their new space, ServerCentral will be hosting a celebration and networking event on Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. Attendees will catch an informative glimpse inside ServerCentral’s new space right before initial customer installations. For more information on this event, visit or email
