Chicago Managed Co-Location

 
Located in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights, GigeNET’s secure co-location facility was designed and constructed to provide the power, cooling, and bandwidth infrastructure for your high-density hosting requirements.

The Co-Location Problem

Most datacenter facilities constructed in the past 5-10 years were not designed with the intent of supporting the power density requirements of today’s servers. Server technology is outpacing datacenter technology. This means that it is very difficult to find a facility that can actually provide enough power & cooling to each rack to fully utilize the space.

GigeNET’s Solution

In an ongoing research & engineering project with CrossRealms, Gigenet has implemented changes to our power & cooling infrastructure that has enabled us to support the increasing demand for high power density applications. What does this mean? Through the use of thermal imaging technology and heat dissipation simulations, re-routing airflow to maximize cooling efficiency, as well as distributing power hungry equipment to balance the “cooling load”, Gigenet is capable of fulfilling your power density requirements – up to 150 watts per square foot!

What is Co-Location?

Co-location allows you to place your server in our rack/datacenter and share our bandwidth amounts. While using co-location is more expensive than standard hosting, it is typically less expensive than hosting a server in your home or small business.
