The tech industry is on the rise in the Los Angeles-Irvine metro as technology employees in the area earn among the nation’s highest average salaries in the industry. Supporting this growth is DataBank’s California presence, which extends from Silicon Valley to San Diego and features in between three colocation data centers within 45 minutes of each other—one in Los Angeles and two in Irvine.
Some of the most recognizable companies have U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles, including Snapchat, TikTok, Walt Disney, Live Nation, Skechers, and Mattel. As home to the global movie industry, numerous universities, and a fast-growing ecosystem of media and digital gaming companies, Los Angeles is rapidly becoming a major edge market for cloud, connectivity, and colocation.
Just south of Los Angeles, Irvine is also headquarters for numerous digital gaming companies that require robust data center compute resources. With a mix of research and entertainment firms, the area adds to the already high demand for colocation options. At the same time, technology in Irvine is advancing at an accelerated pace—governed by the city’s Strategic Technology Plan. The five-year technical and financial guide forecasts IT investments, defines strategic priorities, and promotes innovation and investments in cloud computing, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery.
In Los Angeles, DataBank clients can access a preeminent data center location for IT infrastructures and one of the top telecommunications centers in the world. Our facility at One Wilshire Blvd, also known as the “Carrier Hotel of the West,” is one of the most densely connected buildings globally with access to 200+ carriers. One Wilshire also offers many features that attract tenants—from multiple fiber entry points to unrivaled carrier access to 24x7x365 staffed security.
Within Irvine, the DataBank data centers also feature impressive attributes. These Orange County colocation options are conveniently situated downtown near UC Irvine and the San Diego Freeway. Together, they offer more than 64,000 sq. ft. of data center space and 16 Megawatts of power. These facilities also provide access to a broad range of fiber, Internet, and connectivity options along with the very best facility logistics amenities.
With an estimated population of more than 13 million people, Los Angeles-Irvine is the second-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. and the center of the Southern California colocation universe. Known for a Mediterranean climate and dominating presence in the entertainment industry, the area is attracting large enterprises and increasing numbers of technology startups that need data center options like those offered by DataBank.
