CHICAGO, April 21, 2010 -- SingleHop, Inc., the Chicago-based provider of dedicated servers and complex hosting solutions, today announced a five-year and $7 million commitment to expand their datacenter facilities in the Chicago region. The expansion effectively doubles the firm's worldwide network capacity, as well as their footprint at the Elk Grove (IL) facility where their second datacenter is located.
SingleHop was established in late 2006 and has grown to three locations in the Chicago area and generated over $10 million in annualized revenue. SingleHop's expected investments in the region will total over $20 million within the next three years. The firm offers high-end web, application, and database hosting solutions to clients in over 100 countries and has become a household name in the Internet industry for world-class reliability, technological innovation, and unparalleled management services.
The doubling of SingleHop's datacenter space occurred within less than 11 months after opening for business at the Elk Grove facility in May of 2009. The warehouse where the computing center is located is less than two years old and has been especially outfitted for the support and maintenance of complex technological and networking equipment. According to Zak Boca, President and CEO of SingleHop, "Our current datacenter has provided our clients with exceptional service and 100% uptime since we opened late in May of '09. To continue our aggressive 2010 expansions, we have doubled our capacity both in datacenter space as well as in bandwidth. The technological advancements of this location, combined with our stellar networking engineering, have proven to be a winning combination that can support and benefit current and future clients with the most advanced and stable hosting environment possible."
