Latisys plans to build out an additional 24,600 square feet of high-density data center space at its Oak Brook, Illinois colocation facility.

The new build out will create CHI-06 and will be part of Latisys’ Chicago datacenter campus, a 148,000 square foot purpose-built Tier III colocation facility. CHI-06 will open later this year and will feature 3.6 megawatts of critical power.

Latisys’ Oak Brook data center campus serves as the Midwest hub of Latisys’ unified and compliant national platform of high-density data centers – which includes Denver as an ideal Disaster Recovery site and Southern California and Northern Virginia as gateways to Asia Pacific, Europe and South America.

PCI DSS and HIPAA

CHI-06 will be tied directly to existing fiber carriers in the buildings and monitored 24x7x365 by on-site NOC personnel and systems. Latisys engages external audit firms to perform annual assessments to support customers’ diverse compliance requirements. These accredited examinations span SOC 2, SOC 3, PCI DSS and HIPAA- affirming Latisys’ commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security.

Founded in 1994, Latisys has colocation facilities in Ashburn, Virginia, Chicago, Denver and Irvine, California. The company provides hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions to medium-sized businesses, enterprise customers and government agencies.
