Chicago, IL (Gawkwire) June 29, 2010 – Steadfast Networks, a leading Chicago based data center and dedicated server hosting provider, announced today the opening of its new Chicago data center, located at 725 S. Wells St. The new Steadfast Networks data center will accommodate the expanding demand for Chicago colocation services and Chicago web hosting services in a state-of-the-art data facility. The initial phase includes 6,000 sq. ft. of raised floor data center space and 750kW of power and is the first phase of a 4.5MW build-out at the location.
“Our goal at Steadfast Networks is to give you highly competitive pricing in downtown Chicago without cutting any corners on performance and quality,” says Karl Zimmerman, CEO of Steadfast Networks. “We have the size and scale to easily deliver managed hosting services and colocation hosting services to small, medium, and enterprise businesses, but with a commitment to flexibility and the personal customer service often found in a small company.”

Federal St. allowing Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity between the sites at affordable rates. The site will serve as a center for Steadfast Networks colocation hosting, Linux dedicated servers, Windows dedicated servers, and managed virtual servers.
