Just 11 months after opening a new data center, dedicated hosting specialist SingleHop today announced a five-year, $7 million program to expand its data center facilities in the Chicago market. Last year SingleHop moved into 10,000 square feet of space in a $2.5 million agreement with ServerCentral, which is a tenant in the DuPont Fabros Technology CH1 data center in Elk Grove Village, Ill.

“Our current data center has provided our clients with exceptional service and 100% uptime since we opened late in May of 2009,” said Zak Boca, President and CEO of SingleHop. “To continue our aggressive 2010 expansions, we have doubled our capacity both in data center space as well as in bandwidth. The technological advancements of this location, combined with our stellar networking engineering, have proven to be a winning combination that can support and benefit current and future clients with the most advanced and stable hosting environment possible.”

SingleHop was founded in 2006 and offers high-end web, application, and database hosting solutions. The company has grown to three locations in the Chicago area and generated over $10 million in annualized revenue.
