Building the Foundation for Real-Time Enterprise

Fortress owns and operates secure, compliant Data Centers purpose built for metropolitan localization and densification. The hub is located in the heart of San Francisco’s SOMA tech corridor and is known as the “Fiber Depot” for housing key fiber networks and carrier cell towers. We offer high density colocation, high-speed bandwidth, interconnections to cloud service providers, and access to broadcast TV stations.

Edge Colocation

Locality enables the intelligent edge – where high-performance compute, network, and storage resources are performed on the devices closer to the end-users.


Private connections for a seamless integration of customers, carriers, and partners on a secure and redundant network.


Driving innovation at scale for emerging technology platforms like AR/MR/VR, Automation, Gaming, and Telematics.

Our 5G Ecosystem for 2020

With the buildout of our 5G services and our partnership with 360 Lab SF, an innovative coworking space, we will be able to provide a complete ecosystem for companies that want to connect and collaborate on platforms like immersive creation and consumption, predictive analytics, and evolutionary device intelligence.

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.
