MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Minneapolis has developed into bustling scientific research, healthcare, and financial center of the Midwest, claiming the largest economy in the region behind Chicago. An abundance of Fortune 500 companies are located here, including United Health Group, Target Corporation, Best Buy, Supervalu, and 3M, driving demand for Twin Cities colocation. With a notably high standard of living, the area fuels entrepreneurial growth and opportunity for Minnesota businesses. In fact, downtown Minneapolis accommodates the Minnesota Technology Center, also known as the 511 Building—the primary local carrier hotel.

DataBank has three Minneapolis data centers i – MSP 1 West Twin Cities, MSP2 East Twin Cities, and MSP4 Downtown– all strategically located to offer Minneapolis/St. Paul customers the option for geographic diversity between sites. Originally constructed in 2015, MSP2 provides 2N power redundancy and 20 MW of total capacity.

The cold weather climate of Minnesota allows for the utilization of high-efficiency air-side or water-side economizers, bringing free cooling to data center customers 9 months out of the year. Geography promises reduced risk of natural disaster events, widely considered one of the safer markets for a data center. Minnesota also offers a sales tax rebate for all hardware and software deployed at the MSP2 site. With two data center facility options and numerous geo-specific benefits for growing businesses with evolving technology needs, Minneapolis is a strategic choice for enterprise colocation, cloud, or managed services.
