365 Main Adds San Francisco Bay Area Data Center As 17th Site Nationwide.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 11, 2013 – 365 Main Inc., a leading U.S. data center developer and operator, today announced the addition of its 17th data center, located in Emeryville, California. The company acquired the data center from Evocative, Inc. which, having successfully grown its business, achieved Inc. Magazine’s “Inc. 5000” list of fastest growing companies consecutively from 2009-2012.
“Emeryville boasts an impressive roster of companies, many of which require flexible, reliable data support,” said Chris Dolan, 365 Main CEO. “Our customers wanted to see our highly available and attentive services in this location, and we responded. We’re proud to deliver 365 Main’s quality and customized service, and broaden our presence in the San Francisco Bay Area market.”
Located near 365 Main’s San Francisco headquarters and its San Jose data center, the Emeryville data center adds an important component to the company’s Bay Area presence. Emeryville and its neighboring East Bay cities have cultivated many small businesses into thriving national companies, more than 100 of which use the Emeryville data center. These companies will have the advantage of local service from a provider with nationwide capabilities.
“Our customers have the added benefit of being part of a large, nationwide platform of data centers that is continuing to expand domestically,” added Dolan. “This affords them the opportunity to easily expand to multiple markets, be in close proximity to their data and improve latency.”
According to Patrick Rigney, Evocative founder, “Operational excellence and personalized service have been hallmarks of Evocative's business, making us a perfect fit to join 365 Main's portfolio, and our customers will continue to benefit from their like-minded approach. The entire Bay Area market has just gained, by this acquisition, a top-ranked market operator in the retail colocation space, with the operational and customer service standards and experience sought by established enterprises and aggressive start-ups alike.”
The data center is located in the heart of Emeryville’s technology community and offers a secured site with complete redundancy in its power and cooling infrastructure. It is well connected with several carriers including AT&T, CenturyLink, Paxio, Verizon and Zayo. Added Dolan, “365 Main is excited to have another data center located close to its headquarters with the ability to support the demand from San Francisco and the East Bay area markets.”
