If facilities are a reflection of the companies they house, then Hostway's new data center mirrors a reliable, growing company with state-of-the-art equipment. This new space will allow Hostway to offer colocation in Chicago for the first time and to expand its world-class hosting services.
Located at 100 North Riverside Plaza, in Boeing International's modern skyscraper, the facility is in the heart of downtown Chicago. With 36 stories and almost 1 million square feet of office space, the building is home to Boeing International's world headquarters. The data center will occupy a space originally built out for $200 million. Hostway is investing an additional $10 million to ensure the data center meets the leading industry standards for security, network availability, fire suppression and power capacity.
“[The new data center] ...will enable Hostway to continue to provide a fast, reliable and secure hosting environment for our customers.”
Hostway's Tier 3+ data centers in key locations across the globe are all built out with N+1 redundancy. The new data center is Hostway's 11th, and one of the largest commercially operating data centers in downtown Chicago.
