Oak Brook, Illinois Data Center & Colocation

With convenient access to I-88 and I-294, the Oak Brook, Illinois data center stands only 20 miles west of Chicago. Half cabinets, full cabinets and private cages are available. The facility can also house your DR site and help ensure your critical IT assets are always up and accessible.

Designed for reliability and cost savings, it features best-of-breed equipment and technologies. All critical facility components are redundant, and efficient cooling solutions keep temperature and humidity levels consistent. The data center is also directly connected to US Signal’s robust, secure network, providing you with greater network security and connection options. Tested storm and emergency preparedness plans and multi-faced recovery plans are in place to help minimize service disruptions and ensure continued operation.

Your Hybrid IT Enabler

Put your workloads in the environment where they’ll perform best. Use the Grand Rapids East data center as the catalyst and foundation for a hybrid IT strategy. Maintain ownership of your assets and maximize your investment in them without the costs, labor and expertise required to keep them on site.

When you’re ready, use US Signal’s Cloud-to-Data Center (CDC) connection to move a workload or two to the US Signal public cloud. With your non-cloud infrastructure in the same facility as your virtualized workloads, you take advantage of fast, reliable data transfer between the two environments.

There's Always Another Way

You can also use US Signal’s Virtual Cloud Connect to establish layer 3 connectivity between your private data center or a US Signal cloud service to cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and Google. You don’t have to peer directly or collocate your networking equipment in a provider-supported data center.
