1) 350 E Cermak, our primary data center facility and our "home" since 2003, is #1 on the list. 1.1 million sq. ft. dedicated to data center and data center support infrastructure is enough to be the largest data center in the world, and we're proud to be a part of it, even if we only make up 20,000 sq. ft. of it. This shows the advantages we have with our location, with easy access to over 100 networks that occupy hundreds of thousands of sq. ft. of data center space, all with a simple cross connect.
2) The list is extremely Chicago-centric, proving that Chicago is a perfect location for data centers. 3 of the 10 largest data centers in the world are in the Chicago metro area, 350 E Cermak (#1), Microsoft's Container Data Center (#5) and DuPont Fabros' facility in Elk Grove Village (#8). No other city in the world even has 2 facilities on the list and there are no facilities on the list in California, New York, New Jersey, London, or Amsterdam. You can then see how Chicago has become one of the most important cities in the world as far as data centers and network connectivity, having grown to be a crossroads of the Internet.
This makes it easy to see the advantages we can provide with our location, being in the largest facility in one of the greatest Internet hubs in the world. Bigger is better and provides our customers with the scale they need to compete. We have significant access to national networks, international networks and financial networks, such as CME and ICE. The service we offer is a significant advantage of our services, but our location in Chicago, specifically 350 E Cermak Rd, is also 2nd to none.
