PRESS RELEASE: San Francisco, California, United States of America – Digital Realty has announced that it will relocate its corporate headquarters from San Francisco, California to Austin, Texas in the USA.
Digital Realty owns more than 30 data centres across the state of Texas, encompassing more than four million square feet and over 100 megawatts of customer capacity. In addition, nearly 20% of the company's North American employee base is located in Texas.
Digital Realty has deep roots in the state of Texas, dating back to early 2002 when its predecessor acquired a major regional connectivity hub in downtown Dallas.
“The central location, affordable cost of living, highly educated workforce and supportive business climate have helped make Texas an epicentre for business activity and technology growth,” said Digital Realty Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein. “As we continue to make strategic investments to best position Digital Realty for long-term growth, we are confident our expansion in Texas will help us meet the needs of our more than 4,000 global customers, while continuing to deliver value for our stakeholders, employees and the communities we serve around the world.”
“We are excited that Digital Realty has chosen Texas as the new home for their corporate headquarters, and I thank them for their expanded investment in the Lone Star State,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “Digital Realty joins other global technology leaders and more than 50 Fortune 500 companies now headquartered in Texas. We are seeing increasing investments from innovative businesses thanks to our young, growing, and educated workforce, and our pro-growth economic policies that help job-creating businesses to thrive. I thank Digital Realty for strengthening their presence in Texas, and I will continue to promote common-sense policies that create a welcoming business climate and bring even more jobs to the Lone Star State.”
Despite the relocation of its global headquarters, Digital Realty will maintain a significant presence in the San Francisco Bay Area.
