Five Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in Minneapolis, and the city has long been ranked as a “top tech city” due to its outstanding transportation infrastructure, sustainability measures, and robust Wi-Fi availability. vXchnge’s Minneapolis data center provides an outstanding base of operations for clients looking to expand services throughout the American heartland.
