      The Flagship Series: INAP Los Angeles Data Centers


      The Los Angeles data center market is in high demand. Facilities in the second-largest U.S. metro area provide important points of interconnection to data centers in Phoenix, Las Vegas and Silicon Valley, and are vital to supporting the needs of the entertainment, technology, aerospace and biomedical industries.

      To manage colocation environments and reduce latency for end users, data center customers want to be close to their infrastructure and thus are increasingly in search of centrally located real estate. What’s more, L.A. is a key network gateway to Asia Pacific users, boasting some of the most interconnected internet exchange points in the world.

      High demand, however, has resulted in capacity constraints. The L.A. data center market is seeing low vacancy rates and limited construction of new data center space, with only 9.0 MW under construction and only 6.0 MW planned at the end of 2018, according to a recent report from JLL. In comparison, nearby data center hub Phoenix saw 45.0 MW of new space, with 299.8 MW planned. Northern California saw 42.0 MW under construction over this same time period.

      One reason for the limited capacity is the cost of power, partially due to older grids. In markets seeing booming data center growth, energy costs are often half of what customers will see in the L.A. area. However, that desire to be close to the infrastructure, as well as to key network exchanges, will be enough to drive demand for the foreseeable future.

      When deploying in a competitive market like Los Angeles, enterprises must make the most of their data center investment by choosing a provider that can effectively meet unique performance needs and provide an energy efficient environment.

      Considering Los Angeles for a colocation, network or cloud solution? There are several reasons why we’re confident you’ll call INAP your future partner in this competitive market.

      INAP L.A. Data Centers Deliver High-Performance, High-Efficiency Colocation and Network Solutions

      INAP has six data centers and points of presence in the Los Angeles metro area, with our flagship facility located in Redondo Beach at 3690 Redondo Beach Avenue.

      The 105,000 square-foot flagship data center is designed with Tier 3 compliant attributes and offers high-density configurations including cages, cabinets and suites. Each rack offers high power density of 20 kW or more.

      INAP’s L.A. locations connect to Dallas, Phoenix and Silicon Valley through our high-capacity private fiber backbone. The INAP Performance IP® and Connectivity Solutions product suite provides high availability and scalable connectivity services across our global network. Customers can build the high-performance network their applications and users demand.

      The flagship also includes the following features:

      • Power and Space: 4 MW of utility power, 36-inch raised floor, fully integrated critical infrastructure monitoring
      • Facilities: Break rooms, meeting rooms, onsite engineers with remote hands
      • Energy Efficient Cooling: 300 tons of cooling capacity and N+1 with concurrent maintainability
      • Security: 24/7/365 onsite staff, video surveillance, key card and biometric authentication
      • Network: INAP Performance IP® and Connectivity Solutions
      • Compliance: SOC 2 Type II, PCI DSS, HIPAA, Green Globes

      Our recently announced expansion to this data center will offer additional benefits to customers and more space in a market hungry for it.

      Redondo Beach Data Center Expansion

      “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. “The expansion illustrates INAP’s unique ability to provide comprehensive, high-performance data center, cloud and network solutions.”

      The data center expansion will begin with a build-out of an additional 12,000 square feet of sellable space. After the build-out, the following phases will add modular infrastructure deployments contingent on customer loads. The expanded facility will use efficient mechanical design combined with an optimized UPS deployment. Total critical power capacity will increase from 1.4 MW to 3.2 MW to support new customer deployments and existing customer growth.

      To help address the cost of power, energy efficiency is of the utmost importance. The expansion to the Redondo Beach  facility will increase energy efficiency to 1.3 PEU effectiveness, a level above the national average of 1.67.

      Spend Portability Meets Changing User Demands

      Organizations need the ability to be agile as their needs change. With INAP Interchange, there’s no need to worry about getting locked into a long-term infrastructure solution that might not be the right fit years down the road.

      There are a variety of business cases for Interchange, including a move from a colocation facility to a bare metal or private cloud environment, or a re-deploy of applications to a new hosted environment. Geographic flexibility is a common reason for a tactical shift. For example, a company based in an INAP data center in L.A. may see an increase for demand in its SaaS solution in in the Southeastern U.S. To be closer to its customers, the company can shift to a custom-engineered solution in one of INAP’s two Flagship data centers in Atlanta.

      Colocation, Bare Metal and Private Cloud solutions are eligible for Interchange. The program allows customers to exchange infrastructure environments a year (or later) into their contract so that they can focus on current-state IT needs while knowing they will be able to adapt for future-state realities.

      The Flagship Series: INAP Phoenix Data Centers


      Phoenix, Arizona’s data center market is among the fastest growing in the country, and favorable conditions indicate the boom will not slow down anytime soon.

      The Phoenix metro area is only the 11th largest in the U.S. by population but is ranked No. 2 for data center power absorption, according to recent research from JLL, trailing only the hyperscale haven of Northern Virginia. In total, Phoenix has more than 1.6 million square feet of commissioned data center space.

      There are multiple factors driving high demand. Phoenix is an increasingly popular destination for California-based companies looking for lower rates on power and real estate. Supply constraints in the Santa Clara, California market are also driving enterprises to seek out alternatives—and Phoenix is picking up the slack.

      The nighttime desert climate of Phoenix enables efficient cooling, significantly increasing data center power usage effectiveness (PUE). What’s more, the state of Arizona has capitalized on the favorable climate by offering multiyear incentives for data center investment and operations. Finally, the region faces low risk of natural disasters, making it an attractive location for disaster recovery sites.

      All of these factors contribute to why we consider Phoenix among the most important of our 21 strategically located global metros. Currently, we operate in five Phoenix-area data centers, including our newest Flagship facility.

      Considering Phoenix for a colocation, network or cloud solution? There are several reasons why we’re confident you’ll call INAP your future partner.
