MINNEAPOLIS

The vXchnge Minneapolis data center location, alongside its Twin City, St. Paul location, facilitates the tech infrastructure of the state of Minnesota and the surrounding northern Midwest states. The data center is located in Minneapolis’s renowned carrier hotel, the 511 Building. Like all our colocation facilities, the facility in Minneapolis includes secure cabinets, carrier-neutral connectivity from multiple providers and 100% power availability guarantee for redundant installations.
