INAP Announces Expansion of Los Angeles Flagship Data Center
DediPath, a provider of infrastructure as a service (IaaS), will anchor the expansion by selecting INAP as their primary provider of data center solutions in the L.A. market
INAP’s expansion more than doubles the L.A. facility’s previous power capacity and adds 12,000 square feet of sellable space to support existing and new customer requirements
RESTON, Va., June 18, 2019 — Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a leading-edge provider of high-performance data center and cloud solutions with global network connectivity, today announced an expansion of its Los Angeles Flagship data center, located in Redondo Beach. DediPath will be the anchor tenant after signing a multi-year colocation services agreement for a megawatt of power. DediPath will be ramping into the power as INAP completes its data center expansion.
To support DediPath in the high-demand L.A. market, INAP provided a solution that includes high-density power deployments and ultra-low latency bandwidth via INAP’s patented Performance IP®. DediPath’s contract also includes access to INAP’s spend portability program, which allows the customer to fulfill the megawatt commitment in additional INAP data centers.
The data center expansion will occur in phases, beginning with a build-out of an additional 12,000 square feet of sellable space. Subsequent phases will add modular infrastructure deployments contingent on customer loads. The expanded facility will utilize highly efficient mechanical design combined with an optimized UPS deployment, allowing INAP to achieve 1.3 power usage effectiveness (PUE)—a rate ahead of industry averages. Total critical power capacity will increase from 1.4 MW to 3.2 MW to support new customer deployments and existing customer growth.
“Driven by high demand and capacity constraints in the L.A. market, we have seen accelerated growth in our L.A. Flagship dating back to the end of 2017,” said Andrew Day, Chief Operating Officer of INAP. “We are excited to welcome DediPath as the anchor tenant in this newly expanded space and support them as their primary L.A. provider. Both this deal and the expansion illustrate INAP’s unique ability to provide comprehensive, high-performance data center, cloud and network solutions.”
DediPath originally partnered with INAP in 2018 for data center and network services in its New York-New Jersey Metro Flagship Data Center, and has been expanding its footprint with INAP almost monthly.
“DediPath is committed to providing only the best service and performance to our IaaS customers, so we rely on INAP to deliver highly available, low-latency solutions,” said Mark Jiannino, CEO of DediPath. “With the L.A. expansion, INAP allows us to support our growing business in a state-of-the-art facility.”
“INAP’s commitment to top-tier service and solution flexibility provides a path for continued growth nationwide,” said Ernie Quick, CTO of DediPath. “Additionally, we recently deployed major core network upgrades including 400Gbps of layer 2 connectivity to 1 Wilshire and enterprise DDoS protection to support our growth.”
