Nicknamed the "Queen City" after the German princess it was named after, Charlotte has been one of the fastest growing major cities in the United States for the past decade. A major financial service hub in the country, Charlotte has also seen incredible growth in education and healthcare industries. With a lower cost of living than most comparable cities, plenty of low-cost land and renewable energy, and infrastructure designed to support power-hungry textile factories, it's no wonder Charlotte has quickly become a suitable market for data centers.
