We talk to many Chicago companies who are considering a disaster recovery colocation site. What are they looking for?
* Hardened data center facilities – companies want an F5 tornado resistant data center.
* Midwest colocation – Chicago companies are looking for a location away from the shadow of the Sears tower, but close enough to have reasonable access without driving costs up.
* SAS 70 data center – many companies want to make sure that their outsource data center is SAS 70 certified.
*Rated-4 data center – most companies expect high levels if uptime from an outsource data center. Rated-4 means the data center has redundant power and cooling systems.
* Flexibility – companies are interested in options, including multiple telecom carriers, shared space or private cages, and optional office space.
