Digital Realty Trust, Inc. has announced that it is partnering with Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications™, to offer customers a new state-of-the-art connectivity solution in Digital Realty’s data center in Hillsboro, Oregon. This facility is widely recognized as a hub for major submarine cables, and the partnership is expected to enable both organizations to meet enhanced customer demand for high-bandwidth services and enterprise-grade applications across the U.S. and Asia.
“Hillsboro is a growing hotspot for businesses, both large and small,” said Genius Wong, president, Global Network, Cloud and Data Center Services at Tata Communications. “We are happy to extend our international transmission and IP network point-of-presence in Hillsboro, Oregon. This partnership will support the broadening of the customer base for both organizations. The facility will enable service providers and large enterprise customers in the U.S. and in Asia to get direct access to Tata Communications’ full suite of network services.”
The 52,000-sq-ft Hillsboro data center is located 15 miles from downtown Portland has a building footprint of 52,000 sq ft, and is unique in both its resiliency and efficiency.

In addition, the facility is part of Digital Realty’s West Coast portfolio that consists of 32 data centers across Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley. Many of the company’s West Coast campuses are connected by Telx Metro Connect and the introduction of this new solution is expected to provide enterprises with a global connectivity bridge to a unique network of densely connected ecosystems.
