    350 Cermak in Chicago

    Hi i have two cabinet with Equinix at 350 Cermak in Chicago. I want to add another cabinet but now they want me to buy 3 more cabinets because of their new power density rules. what a joke! buy 3 cabinets when i can only really use one (or less than one, like i only need 20U !!)

    so i want to know who else is in that building that doesnt have such stupid rules so I can pay them for cabinet+power.

    I want 208-30 and 1 cabinet. I will run two x-connects to my two cabinets. This will cost me some extra switching equipment but will save me $2400/mo for a long-time. money well spent in my opinion.

    so please let me know who has good cabinet, access, pricing, etc. i just need 1 cabinet, 208-30A primary/redundant, and 2 x-connects to my existing infrastructure. thanks!

    Ubiquity seems solid - you might also check with Karl Zimmerman at Steadfast Networks (888-281-9449) - pretty well liked company on this board.

    IIRC Ubiquity is out in the suburbs at Stargate, not 350

    Do you need specifically a 30A 208v circuit or might a 20A 208v circuit or 2x 20A 208v circuits work? How soon would you need this setup?

    As has already been shown, they're not in 350 E Cermak.

    We have a POP in London....doesn't mean we provide cabinets there

    Client is specifically looking for cabinets in 350.

    I can vouch that Steadfast will be a wonderful provider. Karl and the team have been very accommodating to our needs and they take care of us well. Their network is also solid and Karl runs a respectable operation in 350 Cermak. Highly recommended.

    With the prices that you are paying currently my guesses are that you may want to move all your cabinets to a new place. Save bunch of money and have a scalable hosting where you will not worry about adding next cabinet.

    ServerCentral also has capacity at Cermak.

  16. I'd second this if the OP didn't ask for cross connects, which I assume means he isn't interested in bandwidth. SC isn't interested in colo if there isn't a bandwidth deal involved.
