Cologix operates 45,000 SQF of Minneapolis data center colocation and interconnection space in the 511 Building, the most connected building in Minnesota. Cologix’s three Minneapolis data centers offer a robust carrier ecosystem including national, regional and local networks, as well as the Midwest Internet Cooperative Exchange (MICE). MICE has grown dramatically in the past three years, peaking over 80Gbps of peering traffic and marking the city as the forefront of a national trend of Internet traffic moving closer to “Edge Markets.” The Minneapolis data centers also support emerging cloud, financial, education and government platforms attracted to Minneapolis’s robust and growing economy. On average, customers save 20-50% on their network bill when choosing Cologix Minneapolis colocation data centers versus other facilities in the greater Minneapolis metro area.
