Location: Chicago

Chicago is one of Faction’s fastest-growing hybrid and private cloud locations.

The Faction Chicago Cloud is housed at TierPoint 601 W Polk data center. The contiguous space is the largest facility for Chicago colocation downtown. It’s directly connected to Chicago’s primary fiber optic ring and can provide low latency access to all of the major data centers and exchanges in the downtown area.

Faction’s Cloud is also directly connected to Telx CHI-1 and CHI-2 Illinois data center locations via dedicated, private layer 2 direct connections.
