Our Telx SFR1 data center is located in San Francisco, California. If San Francisco, CA was its own country it would rank, at $535 billion, as the world’s 19th largest economy. In fact, according to the San Francisco Center for Economic Development, worker productivity in the Bay area is double that of the national average while producing more patents than anywhere else in the country and attracting 36% of the nation’s total venture capital investment in dollars. Nearly 1,900 tech companies are located here, representing 45,493 jobs. Adding fuel to the economic fires, 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 last five years rising 51.8 percent from 2007 to 2012.
Telx® is the leading colocation and interconnection provider within 200 Paul Avenue, one of the premier data center and carrier facilities in Northern California. Acquired in 2006, the facility is seismically rated for protection against earthquakes.
Located south of downtown in one of the largest colocation markets in the U.S., the 200 Paul Avenue data center provides access to dozens of the leading domestic and international carriers, as well as physical connection points to the world's telecommunications networks and backbones.
SFR1’s carrier density makes it ideal in reaching point both north in the US as well to the south to our data center facilities, SCL1, SCL2 (Santa Clara) and LOS1 (Los Angeles). Access to both Asia and the East Coast are available from SFR1 data center (San Francisco).
Telx’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 Telx Metro Connect service to other Telx and 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.
