About Minneapolis

The Minneapolis Data Center Market is growing. The continued business success in the area and investment by data center operators has transformed this once secondary data center city into a logical choice for small, medium, and large sized companies. Historically, a large number of companies have built their own data centers in the Minneapolis area and still operate them today. This presence of enterprise users is due to the large number of Fortune 1000 companies that call Minneapolis home. Organizations like Target, United Health Group, US Bank, Thomson Reuters, Ecolab, Delta, VISI, and a number of other companies all operate their mission critical facilities in the Twin Cities and greater surrounding areas.

From a geographic perspective, much of the data center development has occurred in the Southern half of the city. While some data center providers have a presence downtown, the investment focus over the last several years has taken place in areas like Chaska, Eden Prairie, Eagan, and Edina.
