Data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions provider, Digital Realty is strengthening its existing presence in Texas and strategically positioning the company to better serve its increasingly global customer base. The company also stated that it will maintain a significant presence in the San Francisco Bay Area as one of the world’s leading technology hubs. The relocation of the headquarters to Austin reflects the company’s track record of success and growth in Texas.
From the Bay Area to Austin
Dating back to 2002, Digital Realty has deep roots in Texas, when its predecessor acquired 2323 Bryan Street, a major regional connectivity hub in downtown Dallas. The company expanded upon its initial investment in Texas at 2323 Bryan Street in Dallas, bringing online additional colocation capacity to meet the area’s growing networking needs. The hub is home to more than 75 carriers, and the new colocation capacity provides an ideal location to deploy Network Hub solutions. A. William Stein, Chief Executive Officer, Digital Realty, said,
“The central location, affordable cost of living, highly educated workforce and supportive business climate have helped make Texas an epicenter for business activity and technology growth. As we continue to make strategic investments to best position Digital Realty for long-term growth, we are confident our expansion in Texas will help us meet the needs of our more than 4,000 global customers, while continuing to deliver value for our stakeholders, employees, and the communities we serve around the world.”
