Serverfarm Celebrates Earth Day With Its Acquisition of LA Data Center

This just in: Serverfarm has acquired a 117,500-square-foot data center located in Los Angeles with long-term partner, NantWorks. This acquisition strategy aligns with Serverfarm’s ongoing sustainability mission of acquiring and modernizing facilities in lieu of new construction. Serverfarm applies its Data Center Management as a Service (DMaaS) solution, which is powered by InCommand, to manage enterprise workloads in an automated, highly efficient manner. 

An independent consultant determined that this strategy of reuse over construction results in up to an 88% reduction in embodied carbon emission. (Did you know that buildings and construction directly represent around 39% of all annual global greenhouse gas emissions?)

The 22 MVA Los Angeles data center is host to hyperscale, transportation, healthcare and government tenants. It is strategically located in a key market in close proximity to movie production studios, major aerospace and defense contractors, research and development companies and corporate campuses.

“The latest phase of our data center acquisition strategy is helping to answer demand for efficiently managed colocation space in a Los Angeles site that’s a launching pad to APAC and the rest of the world,” said Avner Papouchado, CEO of Serverfarm. 

This latest acquisition expands Serverfarm’s portfolio of owned and managed assets to over 100 locations across more than 40 countries.
