About Seattle

Seattle is a steadily-growing data center market. Called the "Jet City" based on its history of aircraft manufacturing, Seattle can also claim the moniker of "Cloud City" thanks to its cluster of cloud computing and colocation businesses. The confluence of cloud infrastructure investments from Microsoft and Amazon, relatively low power costs, and high-performance connectivity options drive continued data center growth in Seattle and its suburbs.

Companies searching for data centers in the Seattle market include those in the aerospace, financial, healthcare, technology, and transportation industries. The Seattle market also has the advantage of an overall mild climate. With water to the west and mountains to the east, Seattle's topography generates months of cool, rainy weather—which then enables months of free cooling for the area's data center operators.
