Internap Network Services (IIP) announced today that it has leased 7,500 square feet of data center space in 365 Main's new Los Angeles data center in El Segundo. The expansion will help Internap meet the IP traffic routing needs of an increasing number of large bandwidth customers within the market, as well as offering more customers its bundled colocation and routing management services.
"California is home to a number of companies that deploy bandwidth intensive applications like streaming media, gaming and peer-to-peer networks," said Bob Smith, Internap's chief marketing officer. "Extending our footprint allows businesses in the area to take advantage of Internap as an alternative provider for fast, reliable connectivity. Internap's extension also helps us meet the growing bandwidth demands of our existing customers, particularly those that require a high performance IP solution that optimizes latency-sensitive applications, such as voice and video."
Currently over 90% of customers located in Internap data centers purchase its IP services, which route data across the optimal path using up to eight major Internet backbones. This extension complements 13 other Internap service points in California.
Internap recently expanded its Boston and New York data center facilities to accommodate growing customer demand in those markets. Completion of both build-outs is expected before the end of the year.
365 Main, which is based in San Francisco, acquired the Los Angeles data center last fall, and recently announced a further expansion into the Phoenix and Northern Virginia markets.
