AT&T Opens New Data Centers in Shanghai, Chicago

AT&T opened two new Internet data centers in Shanghai, China, and in Oak Brook, Illinois (outside Chicago).

The new Shanghai facility, located in the city's Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, is the second AT&T Internet data center in that city. AT&T's first Shanghai data center, also in Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, opened its doors to customers this summer. AT&T will operate the Shanghai facilities in alliance with local service providers and will coordinate service delivery with those providers. AT&T, however, will be customers' single point of contact for Enterprise Hosting Services being delivered in China.

The new Oak Brook facility complements AT&T's data center in nearby Lisle, Illinois to further expand the company's hosting presence in the Chicago area..
