Visitors will have the opportunity to tour a live BladeRoom Data Center and network with their industry peers at BladeRoom’s Head Office in Mount Prospect, IL; just 15 minutes from Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Over the last 3 years, BladeRoom has delivered close to 40 BladeRoom Data Centers on 4 continents using rapid factory assembly to create permanent data center structures. Previously, tours of BladeRoom Data Centers were limited to only a few private tours of existing installations. On June 19th, visitors will have a chance to see the closely guarded technology that allows BladeRoom to achieve industry-leading PUEs as low as 1.1.

The showroom BladeRoom Data Center, known as the BladeRoom Technology Center, has been fitted out with IT racks and server emulating heaters. The data center operates in full automatic mode, with the cooling systems precisely matching the IT load within the data center. It uses a combination of free air, evaporative cooling or back up mechanical cooling depending on the outside air conditions.

"The BladeRoom Technology Center offers clients a chance to see a finished BladeRoom Data Center for themselves, touch and feel the system and gain a true understanding of how it works,” says Barnaby Smith, Managing Director at BladeRoom USA. “Many people think of containers when they think of modular data centers, this is one of the preconceptions the BladeRoom Technology Center dispels, demonstrating a true alternative to traditional builds, with wide corridors and high ceilings that offers permanent mission critical space with the flexibility of a traditional approach, just delivered faster with a consistent higher quality of finish.”

This event also features an expert panel titled ‘The True Impact of a Modular Approach to Data Centers” with distinguished international speakers such as Steve Kundich of Digital Realty and Steve Webb of Ark Continuity discussing their own modular approach to data centers and how these approaches have shaped their business and client services.

Registration begins at 4 PM. For more details, visit or email for tickets.
