San Francisco, California

Entrance to 1547's Data Center Facility, 400 Paul, in San Francisco, CA

400 Paul is the first purpose-built data center project constructed in the city of San Francisco in more than 10 years. 400 Paul sits adjacent to 200 Paul, one of the most densely connected Internet Gateways in the US. The property is situated between the two major north-south fiber routes, which connect San Francisco to Silicon Valley.

Customers will have multiple options for metro, long haul, international, and specialized services, as well as complementary products, which includes dark fiber, private line, IP, cable TV, voice and wireless. 400 Paul will be well-connected to other major data centers, key exchanges, and traffic hubs in the Bay Area and beyond.
