Chicago Data Center

Chicago is the third largest city in the United States and one of the largest cities in the world. Benefitting from its central location, relatively inexpensive power, and one of the largest concentrations of companies in the US, Chicago has become an ideal location for hosting critical internet infrastructure. Several data centers have popped up in the last 20 years, including one of the world's most extensive dedicated data center facilities by raw square footage, 350 E Cermak Rd. This premier connectivity hub is one of the best-connected buildings in the country, providing access to every major carrier and private network in some capacity. Adaptive Data Networks maintains a direct connection to 350 E Cermak from our data hub in Elk Grove Village - our largest PoP. Dedicated Servers, Cloud Services, IP Transit, peering, managed hosting, etc., are all available in our Chicago facility.
