Colocation Data Center

What is colocation?

Colocation is the practice of renting out space to store servers and hardware in a third party data center, off premise of your company. Most companies don’t have the capacity or capital to store servers in an environment that provides the network, heating, cooling, or power redundancy required. While businesses still maintain the upkeep of their servers, moving some or all servers offsite to a secure colocation facility significantly reduces operating costs and ensures data is in a secure and compliant environment.

Chicago Colocation Data Center

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

The proximity to Chicago’s global financial institutions, combined with our direct fiber connections makes our datacenter ideal for any colocation need. 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 Chicago Colocation Hosting needs.

Our Network Operations Center (NOC) in Chicago offers customized solutions to fit your business needs. Choose from full, half, quarter cabinets or single server. Each package is powered by our premium network, backed by our 100% uptime SLA, and supported round the clock by a fully staffed team of our leading certified technicians.

If you’re looking for cheap server space, then you’ve come to the right place. Here at GigeNET, we offer a range of affordable colocation server options, providing your firm with the data resource it needs to perform a variety of tasks.

Managing servers in-house in something that you can do without. Maintaining and operating servers is an expensive task. Not only do you have to buy the hardware itself and pay for ongoing cooling, but you also have to hire people who understand how the servers work. It’s not cheap, and it’s certainly not easy.

With GigeNET as your colocation hosting company, you can avoid all of those expenses and go directly to an expert provider. We take care of all of the security matters from our central location, providing you with cheap server access that is both scalable and affordable.

As a cheap server provider, we know that companies need to be able to adjust how much server space they use regularly. With us, you can change how much you pay based on your usage: no more high fixed fees. What’s more, our technology guarantees industry-leading uptime. We regularly adjust our cooling systems to ensure consistent performance and run simulations that maximize cooling efficiency, bringing energy costs down.

Finally, we believe that our offerings should be customized to your business. That’s why we offer full, half and all the way down to a single server solutions. You can buy as much or as little space you need, all with 100 percent uptime guaranteed in our service level agreement. Not many server providers can say that.
