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.
The pre-eminent, purpose-built communications and data centre facility in North Carolina, 113 North Myers Street is ideally located in the central business district of Charlotte — the second largest banking and financial centre in the nation and home to numerous Fortune 500 companies. Digital Realty acquired this interconnection and colocation facility in 2006 and is the interconnection area operator at 113 North Myers Street.
Digital Realty's colocation centres offer premier conditioned space, access control and surveillance systems. Whether you're a carrier, ISP, content provider, financial services company or enterprise business, you can connect to customers and partners in a managed, network-neutral, secure data centre environment.
