Portland, OR Market Overview

Although Portland is considered a secondary data center market (especially compared to nearby large primary markets Seattle and Silicon Valley), data center users increasingly find the market attractive. Portland's numerous advantages for data centers include the growing economy, the growing technology sector, the lower seismic threat, and aggressive tax incentives.

Referred to as the Silicon Forest, the recent investments in the area made by enterprise users and colocation providers are indicative of large-scale future growth for Portland. The main data center development has occurred in the Portland suburb, Hillsboro, where heavy investments from Intel have led to growing interest in the region. The recent colocation and data center development has been sparked by Infomart and Digital Realty’s data center construction in 2011-2012. Other providers, such as T5, Telx, and ViaWest quickly saw the value in the market, leading to the current 22 capacity delivered to Portland.
