Key Market Information - Los Angeles

Home of Hollywood, La Brea Tar Pits, the USA’s largest municipally-owned utility, and, of course, One Wilshire (widely regarded in the industry as the single most important telecommunications hub in the Western USA), Los Angeles was the first district in the US to surpass $300 billion in trade for a single year. Companies such as Hulu, Netflix, several major media corporations, and many Internet entertainment firms are based here. This and several other reasons makes Los Angeles a unique data center market.

For starters, unlike other high-demand markets, the LA metro area was not a historical center of Internet interconnection and does not boast one of the original Internet peering points. Instead, LA grew up as a telecommunications hub for two key reasons:

  1. It has several key trans-Pacific landing points for optical fiber in the vicinity, which all fed into the One Wilshire carrier hotel.
  2. The seismic instability of the Silicon Valley area mandated a significant amount of infrastructure distribution to a location that was close by, but unlikely to suffer from serious “fate sharing” issues.

In addition, while its status as a telecom hub and backup for Silicon Valley was important, the true demand driver in recent times has been the growth of the entertainment and social networking vertical. While banks and other financial institutions are sometimes seen as major consumers of wholesale and colocation data center space, there is little doubt that entertainment companies rival them for sheer power and space consumed in this market.

Lastly, those entertainment firms include massively multiplayer online games (the largest of which has a greater than $1bn annual revenue), social networking sites, and video- and photosharing websites. While many firms are working to distribute servers across a wider geographic range, large installations continue to remain in Los Angeles and are growing.
