Discover the thriving hub of scientific research, healthcare, and finance in Minneapolis—the Midwest's second-largest economy after Chicago. Fueling the demand for colocation services in the Twin Cities are major players like United Health Group, Target, Best Buy, Supervalu, and 3M. Not only renowned for its high standard of living, but Minneapolis also nurtures entrepreneurial growth through the Minnesota Technology Center.
To cater to the area's computing needs, DataBank offers four strategically located data centers in Minneapolis: MSP 1 West Twin Cities, MSP2 East Twin Cities, MSP3 in the new Brooklyn Park Campus, and MSP4 Downtown. Thanks to Minnesota's cold weather climate, we harness the power of high-efficiency air-side and water-side economizers, providing free cooling to our data center clients for nine months of the year. Plus, the geographic advantage translates to reduced risk of natural disasters, making Minneapolis a secure choice for mission-critical workloads.
Introducing the DataBank MSP3 facility, the first establishment on our new Brooklyn Park Campus since 2021. With robust power capacity and chilled door cooling options, this site proves ideal for hyperscalers, content delivery networks, and Fortune 500 companies with compute-intensive workloads. What's more, it benefits from the MN state sales tax rebate, providing cost savings on hardware, software, and software maintenance deployed at the facility.
