Celebrating our 10th Anniversary as a Public Company

October 28, 2014

This week, Digital Realty is celebrating its 10th year as a publicly traded company. We thank our clients, employees, and shareholders for their contributions to our continued success.

The world has changed a great deal in the past 10 years. Consider that 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. As of late last year, Facebook users were adding 350 million photos each day. While these companies are huge and among the best known social media brands, organizations of all stripes and sizes benefit from having a strategy for scaling their infrastructure to support the growth of their businesses.

Furthermore, big data requires big space. With the meteoric rise of mobile devices, and the growth in big data and cloud computing, extensible data center capacity is increasingly essential.

Over these past 10 years, as we have helped our clients meet the challenges of storing, processing, and interconnecting their data, our global footprint has grown considerably. With 24.5 million square feet across 4 continents, Digital Realty now operates 130 facilities that serve clients everywhere. Our footprint is the equivalent of 455 White Houses, 708 Taj Mahals, 18 Yankee Stadiums, 9 Empire State Buildings, 50 Sydney Opera Houses, 93 Roman Colosseums, or 30 Buckingham Palaces. (On the topic of Buckingham Palace, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out our recent blog post about an irreverent Buckingham Palace guard, Monty Python’s Ministry of Silly Walks, and data center outsourcing.)

Our facilities are secure homes for the servers and other equipment that power, store, and process your transactions, data and analytics across the globe. As a trusted partner, we can provide the space for your ambitions to take shape anywhere you want to be.

Bill Stein, Interim CEO and CFO
