SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:
DLR), a leading global provider of data center solutions, today announced it
will be showcasing one of its premier data centers, 365 Main Street, in San
Francisco, CA, with an exclusive event on Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 5:00
p.m. to 8:00 p.m. PT.

Digital Realty executives will host tours of the facility, highlighting the
benefits of the data center as well as the company's retail colocation
services, including:

  oDirect access to tier-1 carriers, content delivery networks (CDNs),
    internet service providers (ISPs), cloud service providers and strategic
    service providers
  oCompliance with industry and federal standards such as SOC II, HIPAA and
    PCI
  oA highly efficient, secure environment that can fully support critical IT
    applications and business operations with a proven track record of uptime
    performance

Michael F. Foust, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Realty, will address how
this data center supports the critical technology infrastructure of top San
Francisco Bay Area companies. John Sarkis, Vice President of Connectivity and
Carrier Operations for Digital Realty, will also be speaking about the
company's connectivity initiatives within the 365 Main Street data center and
globally, as well as the critical role that the facility will play in the
recently announced Digital Realty Ecosystem.

The upgrades completed at 365 Main Street represent a $10 million investment
in the building and associated infrastructure. The resulting increase in
capacity has created a more efficient operating environment for the company's
colocation customers, which includes more than 200 companies across the
technology, legal, finance and entertainment industries.

According to Research and Markets, in a June 2013 report titled, Data Center
Colocation Services Market in North America 2012-2016," one of the major
drivers in the data center colocation services market is the increasing need
to reduce capital and operational expenses in data center facilities. As
enterprises are experiencing increasing expenditure on data center facilities
there is a need to control these costs, and enterprises are opting for
colocation services, which can be more cost effective than the internal
hosting of data center services.

WHEN: Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. PT

WHERE: Digital Realty, 365 Main Street, San Francisco, CA 94105
