INAP begins Phase II of LA data centre expansion


INAP has started the next phase of its Los Angeles-area flagship data centre expansion, six months after phase one, which added 12,000 sqf and a 2.5MW transformer to the facility.

When all phases are complete, the project will increase the data centre’s total power capacity from 1.4MW to 3.2MW of critical load. 

The facility is located 15 minutes from LAX International Airport. The expansion was initiated in June 2019 to accommodate the growth of several of the company’s customer environments, as well as supply constraints and demand for hybrid infrastructure services in the L.A. data centre market.   

"The ability to invest in our customers' growth and technology transformation is INAP's paramount consideration when planning and executing projects of this scale," said Mike Higgins, Senior Vice President of Operations at INAP.

"Given the immense challenges posed by the pandemic, we're thrilled by the superb performance of our data centre operations team, who've kept the expansion on schedule, all while operating a high-traffic, live facility under stringent health and safety protocols."

According to INAP's annual State of IT Infrastructure Management report, published in December 2020, 59% of IT infrastructure managers say their organisation is changing where they operate their infrastructure as a result of the pandemic.

"Top-tier colocation and secure enterprise cloud, coupled with high-speed, low-latency networking to the hyperscale public platforms, are the critical building blocks of a successful enterprise hybrid infrastructure solution, and the pandemic is only underscoring that reality," said Joe Corvaia, Chief Revenue Officer at INAP.

"For businesses to best operate, scale, and transform their technology landscape with velocity, there is no-one-size-fits-all approach to cloud transformation.

“Many of INAP's Los Angeles-area customers are taking advantage of our flexible hybrid portfolio and solution spend portability program, which will empower them to migrate to the right environment at the right time for their organisation."
