Los Angeles is the second largest data center markets in California after the Bay area.

LA as a Network Gateway to Asia

Los Angeles started as a telecom hub, a place to interconnect long distance voice traffic, not as one of the original Internet interconnection points. The telecom interconnection was driven by the number of transpacific cables that land in Southern California. As many as six transpacific cables extend to the One Wilshire data center building.

Downtown Los Angeles Market

Downtown LA contained most of the early data centers. The downtown buildings were converted office buildings such as One Wilshire, 600 W 7th, and the Garland Building. Converted office buildings do not make good bones for racks of heavily loaded servers.

Outside of Downtown LA

As the LA market matured, larger purposed built data centers sprouted outside of downtown. Power is less expensive in the LADWP service area and El Segundo became a focal point for new data centers. Initially lead by Equinix LA3 and LA4, then by Digital Realty, and T5.
