One of the main data-centers that Adeptcloud utilizes is the Digital Realty Chicago Campus located in the Chicago suburb of Franklin Park. It consists of three buildings, totaling over 500,000 square feet of space.

Our servers in the Digital Realty Trust Chicago data-center utilize a redundant infrastructure that includes the following:

The location is key in any data-center, this is why we are proud to be utilizing a data campus located only 5 miles from O’Hare International Airport which provides us with benefits such as close proximity to multiple fiber providers as well as utility (including power-grid) substations. The data-center is outside of the 100 year flood plain and currently has a Utility Power Capacity of 56 MW as well as an N+1 UPS Redundancy with a 41 MW Power Capacity. The generators on-site also have a 70 MW Power Capacity.

This data campus also has direct connectivity to 350 Cermak as well as 600 South Federal.
