Colocation provider NET2EZ has become the first tenant in the new 365 Main data center in El Segundo, Calif. in the Los Angeles market, the companies announced this week.
"The first tenant is always the toughest one," said Chris Dolan, CEO of 365 Main, a leading California mission critical data center operator. Dolan said the power infrastructure of the company's new El Segundo facility makes it an attractive alternative to space in downtown Los Angeles. "We have been aware of some of the problems facing the LA market," said Dolan. "Many of the high rise facilities can no longer handle the high density demand and the heat generated by it. There have been numerous blackouts effecting downtown LA. With more power demand and the recent outages, it underscores the quality of the infrastructure we have created at 365 Main."
With the addition of the El Segundo location, NET2EZ is perfectly positioned to meet the recent surge in colocation and internet hosting activity in the Greater Los Angeles market," said Pervez Delawalla, CEO of NET2EZ. "We have established a very strong niche in the market by providing high availability colocation space and Tier 1 bandwidth at very competitive prices. We can't afford any downtime. After an extensive review of a number of alternatives, we feel that 365 Main is the right choice to continue our growth."
