“We chose Digital Realty because of its proven capabilities to engineer and operate highly advanced and secure data centers. The decision to house thousands and thousands of servers hosting our customers’ websites isn’t taken lightly.

“We're driven by research and education and we certainly have been willing to put real resources behind it. Every real advancement we’ve made has always been through partnerships. In my first conversation with Digital Realty, they struck me the same way. We're a customer, but we're also a partner.”
President Emeritus and Chief Research Officer, NYSERNet
"Our confidence in Digital is extremely high. During Hurricane Harvey, they arranged to have fuel trucks on site. They arranged to have generator and other maintenance personnel on site to be able to handle the emergencies that may arise if the sites were isolated and running on generator for an extended period of time. They were able to handle staffing to make sure the site would be manned regardless of accessibility."
Vice President of Operations, Fibertown

“It was a no brainer for us to continue with them and to expand the relationship when we went into other markets. For me it comes down to flexibility and a close working relationship with our vendor. It's not just about price, I want a partner that will deliver time and time again, and Digital Realty has done that for me on a number of occasions. Their portal is a great tool, very helpful and intuitive. It has really helped Transbeam to be more scalable and predictable.”
Director of Network Engineering, Transbeam
“When we went looking for our next data center partner, our criteria were price, power, and the proximity to fiber for connectivity, since that’s the business we’re in. We also wanted a company with deep experience, sound methodology and lots of space. We had a lot of choices, but in the end, we thought, hey, Digital Realty has done this before, many times.”
VP of Business Development, IBM Cloud
