360 Technology Center Solutions, LLC, (360TCS) a leading provider of high density colocation services based in the Chicago area and MC Squared Energy Services, LLC, (mc2) an Illinois-based retail electricity supplier recently announced the establishment of a mutually beneficial business relationship.

For 360TCS, operating a “next generation” data center brings with it the typical challenges involved with providing 100% availability of services to a growing customer base of enterprise level clients. “To say the success of our business is tied closely to our energy utilization is an understatement,” said Don Welbourn, Director of Sales / Account Relations at 360TCS, “we specialize in delivering more power per cabinet than our competitors, affording our clients the ability to take advantage of today’s cutting edge technology, such as blade servers and virtualization, to compress the physical footprint of their hardware configuration resulting in the need for a smaller number of cabinets and a cost savings versus a lower density deployment.” Don went on to add, “The variety of options presented to us by mc2 gave us the opportunity to choose a solution based on our business model, not some cookie-cutter, take it or leave it deal. We were able to lock in a favorable competitive rate for our power supply needs that protects our operating margins for the foreseeable future from unexpected cost increases.”

In addition to helping 360TCS manage their energy expenses, as an organization that is currently growing at a rapid pace, mc2 recognized an opportunity to add a level of redundancy to their infrastructure by utilizing 360TCS’ colocation and data center services. “Our customers count on us to be there for them when they need us. There is no 9-5 anymore. The redundancy of the 360TCS infrastructure provides us with the ability to focus on delivering the best products possible to our customers along with the peace of mind of knowing our network and hardware is in a stable and secure environment. 360TCS is a great fit for mc2,” stated John Clark, CFO for mc2. “The ability to provide power and cooling capacities beyond what is available in other area Data Centers gives us plenty of room to expand without outgrowing the capabilities of the facility. This, along with 360TCS’ unwavering commitment to security and their knowledgeable staff being ready to assist us at any time of the day or night made 360TCS an easy choice for mc2.”
