We love Chicago and have two data centers here! We have our data centers in the City and the suburbs to provide maximum speed, the best server location, and a boost to our local economy

Believe it or not, this 42 floor behemoth of a skyscraper houses Fitzgerald Tech Solutions’ shared hosting services.
