City by the Bay

We have data center strategically located in San Francisco, a key connectivity hub for Silicon Valley. As a standalone country, San Francisco’s $535 billion economy would rank 19th in the world.

According to the San Francisco Center for Economic Development, worker productivity in the Bay area is double the national average, producing more patents than anywhere else in the country, and attracting 36 percent of the nation’s total venture capital investment in dollars. 

Nearly 1,900 tech companies are located here, representing 45,493 jobs. A September 2013 report published by Bloomberg Technology Summit found that the city of San Francisco led the nation in tech job growth for the past five years rising 51.8 percent from 2007 to 2012. Jobs continue to be plentiful, in spite of the region’s reputation for existing in a bubble of boom and bust, and according to SiliconValley.com more growth is expected even though it has leveled off from 2015.

365 Main Street

San Francisco, CA 94105

Digital Realty’s SFR2 facility affords customers access to a world-class data center environment within walking distance of San Francisco’s financial district. Originally built as a military tank assembly plant, the building features solid steel and concrete construction, extensive security capabilities, and 8.6 MW of critical IT power load. The building underwent award-winning upgrades for its friction pendulum system, which isolates the base of the building from its floors, ensuring critical operations are maintained throughout and after a major seismic event. As a result, the building has achieved “essential facility” designation according to applicable building codes. SFR2 also operates as a carrier-neutral facility, enabling access to major carriers, internet exchanges, and cloud hubs within the region. Connectivity is facilitated within its meet me room, atop a neighboring roof with significant line of sight, and via Metro Connect service to other Digital Realty facilities in the Bay Area. As a result, SFR2 provides the ideal infrastructure to support our customer’s mission-critical applications and service offerings.
