MICE has grown dramatically, peaking over 80 Gbps of peering traffic and marking the city as the forefront of a national trend of Internet traffic moving closer to “edge markets.” Our Minneapolis data centers also support emerging cloud, financial, education and government platforms attracted to Minneapolis’s robust, growing economy.

“One IT has the ability to place clients in many data center locations, but Cologix is the only one around that was built leveraging Tier IV principles for concurrent maintainability with unique power redundancy, flexibility for cooling, security, and certifications that even the most cautious would feel comfortable with—combined with rates that are very reasonable.”

“The combination of both neutrality and a significant number of carriers is what makes network neutrality valuable. Cologix, in the 511 Building, is the only place in Minnesota with network neutrality and 80 carriers, while the nearest competition has less than a dozen networks, at most. This was a big factor in our choosing Cologix.”
