What Citadel is not:

  • Citadel is not a data center owner – So you’re not limited to just one company’s facilities. Rather, you receive an apples-to-apples comparison across various data centers from the different providers able to service your needs.
  • Citadel is not a broker – So you receive start-to-finish help designing, negotiating, and implementing your data center solution. Citadel’s service doesn’t stop when you sign a contract. Citadel’s team is there every step of the way…as a long-term business partner.

    And, we don’t take commissions from data center providers since optimizing the commission percentage can entice brokers to push you to the provider who pays them the highest fee.
