While colocation may seem straightforward there are a lot of nuances that most people overlook. Checkout our Guide for colocation in San Francisco to help you make the right decision.
Digital Realty Trust
Digital Realty operates mission critical facilities globally. Their acquisition of Telx expanded their already large footprint. In San Francisco, they have 3 facilities which gives you plenty of choice.
Our take. You get much value for your IT spend with DRT. They offer flexibility in their power density which allows firms to save some money if they don't need high density computing environments. They feature excellent interconnection options and they have extremely robust power, network and support.
Hosting.com offers colocation and managed services for mission critical applications.
Our take. Their managed service offerings contain a complete portfolio of offerings and we've noticed that they host several well known SaaS firms. Their colocation offerings aren't as plentiful (geographically) as others but the facilities are solid and highly redundant and mission critical.

InterNap offers colocation with amazing inter-carrier connectivity and OpenStack based Cloud Computing.
Our take. InterNap has long been known for their interconnections between multiple networks and colocation. While they are not very well known as a cloud provider, they do offer an interesting OpenStack and Bare Metal service that are quite robust.
