CyrusOne has announced its platinum sponsorship of the Society for Information Management (SIM) Chicago. CyrusOne supports multiple SIM Chicago events throughout the year, including the Winter Social, SIM in the Burbs Breakfast, and Taste of Regional Leadership Forum (RLF).

“We have attended and sponsored many SIM Chicago events in the past, and the CyrusOne staff looks forward to continuing our support of such a great organization in 2016,” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer, CyrusOne. “Our aspirations coincide as both of our organizations look to provide new and inventive opportunities to those in the business and technology fields.”

CyrusOne plans to be an event sponsor for the Winter Social, Feb. 10 at 5:30 p.m. at Intuit, the Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art. This annual event supports the Arts & Business Council (A&BC) of Chicago, a nonprofit organization that works to assist arts organizations with their business structure in order to keep them as sustainable institutions in Chicago. Each year, A&BC recruits more than 300 arts organizations, and volunteers to come together to promote community growth through the arts.

“CyrusOne has been a fantastic supporter of SIM Chicago for many years,” said Kevin Rooney, president of SIM Chicago. “As the premier executive IT network in Chicago, we look to partner with those organizations that understand the power of relationship and are able to deliver value back to our members in the IT and business community. We are thrilled to have CyrusOne as our partner and we look forward to the continued growth of both our organizations.”

CyrusOne’s 30,000-sq-ft Lombard/Chicago data center is located 20 miles west of downtown Chicago, near O’Hare International Airport.

A high-speed, high-capacity network connection is available directly to downtown Chicago’s telecommunications hub, with a strong network offering to accommodate customers with specific latency and/or replication needs. As part of CyrusOne’s National IX (Internet Exchange) platform, the Chicago data center provides interconnection to other CyrusOne data centers.
