Digital Realty Trust, a provider of data center, collocation and interconnection solutions, recently announced today availability of direct, private access to Salesforce via Digital Realty Service Exchange in 15 cities worldwide. As a Salesforce Express Connect partner, Digital Realty now provides its customers direct access to the full range of the Salesforce Lightning Platform.


Digital Realty Service Exchange simplifies the technical burden of configuring and managing the network edge for their customers, accelerating their ability to directly connect to a more robust portfolio of cloud providers. Layer 3 access to Salesforce is available immediately in Amsterdam, Ashburn, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Frankfurt, Dallas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle.

“Direct connections to Salesforce through Service Exchange give enterprises the confidence they need to expand their deployment quickly and cost-effectively with the knowledge that application performance will improve significantly with reduced risk of service interruptions,” said Chris Sharp, CTO, Digital Realty. “Global enterprises increasingly turn to Digital Realty to enable their own rapid expansion, and we are committed to continuing to innovate to meet their interconnection needs.”

Direct connections to SaaS applications such as Salesforce offer strong benefits over connectivity via the Internet.

Digital Realty’s Service Exchange is a global interconnection solution designed to connect enterprises directly to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS providers with the goal of minimizing latency and enabling customers to expand scalability from a single cabinet to a multi-megawatt facility quickly and easily as their needs grow. Service Exchange provides a single port that supports multiple virtual private connections which users can actively manage through the Digital Realty MarketplacePORTAL, increasing and decreasing bandwidth on-demand.
