Latisys Opens 2nd Orange County Data Center

Region's largest data center operator opens new facility and provisions first 22,000 square feet and 10 MW of power of newly commissioned datacenter capacity

Englewood, CO (September 20, 2011) – To meet growing demand for high-density colocation and cloud services in the Southern California market, Latisys, a leading national provider of IT outsourcing solutions from colocation to cloud, today announced it has commissioned the first 22,000 square feet and 10 MW of power in its 93,000 square foot data center in Irvine, CA. The new facility will be on display and available for data center tours at Latisys’ Grand Opening event September 22, 2011. For details and to register, click here.

Only steps away from Latisys’ existing 50,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art data center facility (OC1), which has been serving business customers since 1994, this second facility (OC2) with 93,000 sq. ft. makes Latisys the largest data center operator in the Orange County market. As a result, Latisys remains uniquely positioned with high density power and cooling to accommodate enterprise customer requirements for managed hosting, cloud solutions and data center colocation.

“Latisys has committed significant capital and resources to the Orange County market by adding state-of-the-art infrastructure, investing in cloud technologies with high availability platforms, and building out a deep team of data center industry veterans,” said Tom Panarisi, Regional Vice President, Latisys. “Our flexible approach to delivering IT infrastructure services is driving strong growth for the firm and our position as the data center provider of choice for a diverse range of more than 300 Orange County and Los Angeles area businesses.”

In addition to the newly commissioned physical space and power, Latisys provides an enhanced offering for large enterprises and service providers with significant high-density power and cooling needs. Unlike the traditional wholesale data center’s model of a triple net lease, which requires companies to lease space at a data center facility and then potentially invest capital and additional personnel to run operations, Latisys eliminates capital expenditures for the enterprise by delivering complete IT infrastructure solutions – including the necessary power, cooling and physical security – through its Service Level Agreement rather than lease. As a result, enterprises can turn to the Latisys-Irvine data centers to achieve on-demand benefits, including:

  • Reduced TCO with elimination of capital expenditures – Rather than making capital investments in power, cooling, security and network access often required for a leased space, organizations can leverage Latisys’ investments in next-generation technologies, operational expertise and efficiencies, in addition to the data center infrastructure.
  • Scalable HD power and N+1 cooling – Latisys supports between 250 kilowatts to 2 megawatts of high-density, N+1 redundant power and efficient cooling with 36” raised floors and optional hot-aisle or cold-aisle containment for additional efficiencies.
  • Network-neutral facility – Located in the heart of the Orange County business community and less than a 10-minute drive from John Wayne Airport (SNA), the Irvine data center campus is geographically positioned in Irvine for convenient access and reliable connectivity, featuring connections to multiple Tier 1 providers.
  • State-of-the-art security – Each Latisys data center facility features multi-layered security systems, digital video surveillance, network monitors and a 24x7x365 fully manned Network Operations Center (NOC) that is tied to the national support team.

With multiple high-density, Tier III data center facilities in Irvine, Denver, Chicago and the recently completed 123,000 data center campus in North Virginia, Latisys delivers coverage across all U.S. time zones – including gateways into the Asia Pacific and Europe – providing unmatched scalability and multi-site redundancy to enterprise customers whether they want to off-premise, off-load, optimize or on-demand their IT infrastructure.
