“Portland is a great example of a traditional Edge market that has rapidly grown into a significant regional market. Over the last four years, since we first established a presence locally in Hillsboro, customer demand for this market has quickly accelerated, encouraging us to develop a full data center campus with a rich connectivity ecosystem. Many edge markets in our portfolio are following this trend as data gravity rapidly trends towards the Edge.”
