Data center demand typically occurs in larger cities with growing economies, and Boston has the 9th largest economy in the US. This along with the city’s growing tech industry are reasons data center users find the market attractive.
Data center providers in Boston are active as well, with over thirty colocation facilities from providers like Digital Realty, CoreSite, Cyxtera, Equinix, and TierPoint (among others).
