There’s no doubt about it – the tech and telecom markets of the Asian-Pacific (APAC) region are booming. From mobile subscriptions to ecommerce, high internet penetration and an increasingly tech-savvy workforce are combining to support the region’s digital economies. In fact, experts predict that by 2019, the region will generate the most web traffic in the world – double the volume generated in North America. As a result, data centers like Rising Realty Partners’ West 7 Center are set to serve as reliable colocation partners, providing mission-critical infrastructure and support for the flow of data from the US across the Pacific Ocean.
As the first purpose-built, underground data center in Los Angeles, West 7 Center is strategically positioned to support carriers, OTTs and enterprises looking to expand into growing Asian markets. With over 16 global and domestic carriers on site and 172,000 square feet of space available, the Tier III facility offers prospective clients an attractive and reliable gateway to Asia.
“With direct access to One Wilshire, a primary transit center for internet traffic from the US to Asia, we offer the redundancy our customers need for their data and mission-critical applications. Backed by two central plants with N+1 redundancy and 70,000 gallons of fuel, West 7 Center can provide ongoing uptime in case of emergency or power outages.” – Tyson Strutzenberg, Chief Operating Officer of Rising Realty Partners
“When we were looking to add to our presence in Los Angeles, we specifically chose West 7 Center because of their round-the-clock security and engineering services. Our clients include small start-ups and Fortune 500 companies – each in need of a high level of flexibility, service and low latency connectivity. This is one of the best data centers from an infrastructure perspective and it rivals some of the major carrier hotels and disaster recovery sites on a global scale. We are confident that our customers will benefit from West 7 Center’s capabilities as a data storage and colocation facility with easy access to subsea cables that travel to Asia.” – Arman Khalili, CEO of Evocative
Evocative, which recently signed a 42,000 square foot lease in the West 7 Center facility, now has another major presence in the downtown Los Angeles market with its recent acquisition of Cyberverse, at 600 W 7th Street, Los Angeles.
