Internap Opens Los Angeles Data Center to Meet Demand for Scalable Colocation and Hosting Services
State-of-the-art facility provides advanced redundancy, energy efficiencies; meets low-latency needs for performance-sensitive organizations
ATLANTA – September 26, 2012 – Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, today announced the official opening of its newest company-controlled data center, located in the Redondo Beach area of Los Angeles, California. Designed from the ground up to meet rapidly-growing enterprise application and power consumption demands, the high-performance facility provides the highest levels of scalability, redundancy and energy efficiency.
According to Tier1 Research, multi-tenant data center utilization in Los Angeles is expected to reach 94% by 2013. Incorporating Internap’s premium colocation, managed hosting and global Performance IP™ transit service, the Los Angeles data center will serve organizations across a range of industries – including media and entertainment, gaming, technology and financial services – that rely on the fast, reliable, low latency delivery of business-critical applications and content.
With 55,000 net-sellable square feet when fully deployed, Internap’s Los Angeles facility is expected to receive a SOC2 Type II independent audit report. The LA data center is conveniently located, with easy access to I-405 and just 15 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Key facility features include:
- High-density scalable power: Redundant electrical infrastructure allows up to 12kW per rack. “Upgrade in place” scalability lowers equipment costs for customers by reducing the need to consume additional floor space.
- Disaster preparedness: Seismic-reinforced building to a 1.5 importance factor.
- Advanced resiliency: N+1 design with concurrent maintainability ensures maximum uptime.
- Green design: Purpose-built to achieve LEED Platinum and Green Globes™ certification, the facility was designed from the ground up for energy efficiency. Energy-saving techniques include modular UPS design, liquid cooling and outdoor air economizers, among others.
- Customer amenities: Fully-equipped office and conference space, lounge with espresso bar, DIRECTV and Xbox 360 – to address the increased amount of time customers spend onsite.
“Our new location in Redondo Beach delivers state-of-the art data center services and design for organizations in Southern California and beyond,” said Mike Higgins, senior vice president of data center services at Internap. “As our eleventh company-owned facility, it reflects our commitment to building out a geographic footprint of premium data centers in key markets, with the flexibility and performance to meet diverse customer requirements.”
