QTS to Open Mega Data Center in Chicago's Central Business District
Chicago businesses are crying out for more data center capacity and QTS is answering the call. We're nearing the completion of phase 1 of our brand-new Tier 3 Compliant mega data center in the heart of Chicago.
And the best part? Its location in the iconic Chicago Sun-Times building brings much needed data storage space to the business district.
This new data center will serve as QTS' Midwest hub, delivering a full portfolio of highly compliant IT infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions, featuring customizable data center solutions, colocation hosting, managed hosting, hybrid cloud, and disaster recovery services for the enterprise and government organizations. Situated on a 30-acre campus, QTS Chicago is highly secure and monitored 24x7x365 by QTS' Operations Services Center (OSC), and on-site network teams and building management systems.
And if 317,000 square feet of capacity isn't enough to serve the demands of Chicago businesses, don't worry— QTS has the ability to add an additional 213,000 square feet of raised floor and 32 megawatts of power in Building 2 for a total of 346,000 square feet of raised floor and 56 megawatts of power within the campus.
