Stargate Colocation will officially open its new 86,000 square foot data center in Oak Brook, Illinois with an open house on Dec. 4, the company said this week. The StarGate facility is the latest in a series of data center announcements and openings in the busy Chicago market. The new facility will hold up 2,200 cabinets, with a hot-aisle containment system for temperature control that will allow it to host high-density blade server installations.
Stargate will offer tours of the new data center at 3 pm. You can register online or check out a virtual tour of the facility on the company's web site at Stargate.com (which is one of the Web's oldest domains, registered in August 1986).
