About Us

We are excited about the new evolution of our infrastructure and partner collaborations that will enable real-time enterprise.

Our historical building has seen major transformations and afforded us the opportunities we have today. From our beginnings in 1923 as a storage facility for the Southern Pacific Railroad, known as the Hawley Terminal Building, we began our conversion to telecom switching in 1982. Due to our advantageous location, proximate to AT&T’s San Francisco and Bay Area fiber network through old rail line easements, we became known as “The Fiber Depot”. Over the years, we saw seismic retrofits and infrastructure renovations. In 2015, we began building our San Francisco Data Center to meet the demands of the emerging technologies bringing more critical power, cooling, security, and now… 5G.
