ITEM 8.01: OTHER EVENTS

We are filing this Current Report on Form 8-K, or the 8-K, to revise our consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2008, 2007 and 2006 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, or the 2008 10-K, initially filed on March 2, 2009, to reflect the retrospective reclassification of such consolidated financial statements in connection with our adoption of the following accounting standards on January 1, 2009:

 

   

FASB Staff Position No. APB 14-1 Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments that may be Settled in Cash Upon Conversion (Including Partial Cash Settlement); and

 

   

FASB No. 160 Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements, an amendment of ARB No. 51.

The reclassification impacts our consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2007 and 2008 and our consolidated statement of operations for the years ended December 31, 2006, 2007 and 2008 included in Part II, Item 8 of the 2008 10-K, as well as Notes 2(b), 2(h), 3, 4, 6, 7, 11, 16 and 17 to the consolidated financial statements.

In connection with the reclassification, we are updating the following information in the 2008 10-K:

 

   

Item 6, Selected Financial Data, attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this 8-K and incorporated herein by reference;

Item 15, Exhibit 12.1, Computation of Ratio of Earnings to Fixed Charges, attached as Exhibit 12.1 to this 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

In addition, the description of our long-term incentive units contained in Note 10 to the consolidated financial statements has been revised, consistent with disclosure included in subsequent filings, to provide additional details regarding how long-term incentive units of Digital Realty Trust, L.P. achieve parity with common units and to provide details on how certain other share-based compensation are valued upon grant.

All other information in the 2008 10-K remains unchanged, and except as specifically noted above, this 8-K does not update for events or developments since the filing of the 2008 10-K.
