The Windy City is a major hub for Internet and financial infrastructure, with active communities of data center users and service providers. Chicago is America’s third-largest city, and an active business market with nearly 40 Fortune 500 companies headquartered in the metro area.

Chicago is distinctive in that it sees demand for data center space from a wide range of industries.  It is home to major trading exchanges for stocks, commodities and options, making the city a hotbed of activity for the financial services industry. The region has also become a favored location for hosting, colocation and cloud computing companies. Chicago sees strong demand from the enterprise sector as well, both for primary data centers and as backup/disaster recovery facilities.
