Naperville, Illinois

NetSource Communications, Venture Technologies’ Midwest data center, is a Chicago area (Naperville) world class datacenter providing a broad range of web hosting and infrastructure solutions and systems. The initial datacenter buildout was put into operation in 2007 and expanded in 2013. The datacenter was built from the ground up according to the ANSI/TIA 942 standard for datacenters, and continues to operate in accordance with PCI-DSS standards for security, and, in compliance with SSAE-16, SOC1, and SOC2 Type 2 standards. These standards call for rigorous procedures in all facets of datacenter operation. In February 2017, Venture Technologies acquired NetSource (VTDC Midwest). This is the third tier-3 data center facility owned and operated by Venture Technologies. Operational integration with Venture Technologies is currently underway.
