CoreSite (formerly CRG West) has completed 20,000 square feet of new space at the company’s Chicago data center at 427 South LaSalle Street, the company said today. The new space, located in the heart of the financial district, will accommodate demand for data center space in downtown Chicago. It expands the existing footprint at the LaSalle Street site, where CoreSite has about 30 existing data center and colocation customers.
The new space is supported by 2N emergency generator back-up power as well as an N+1 cooling and UPS configuration. It features a raised-floor design with a return-air plenum, allowing for hot aisle containment to maximize energy efficiency.
"We take great pride in building out data center space the right way, with strong, redundant reliable infrastructure to provide a reliable, well-connected home for our customers’ mission-critical ICT systems," said Billie Haggard, Vice President of Data Centers for CoreSite. "Our goal is to design, build and manage our data centers with our customers’ success in mind. We provide them with an environment that promotes and accommodates their future growth and do the job right."
CoreSite announced its rebranding from CRG West last week, saying the new name reflects the national scope of the company’s operations after several years of active expansion in its data center footprint
