Dedicated server, cloud hosting, and colocation service provider, Hivelocity, continues its impressive growth with the acquisition of IaaS provider RackAlley.com.  The addition of RackAlley’s facilities and staff provide Hivelocity with an immediate and significant data center presence in Los Angeles, California. This announcement comes on the heels of Hivelocity launching its second data center in Tampa in response to increasing demand in that market. Since 2002, Hivelocity has earned a reputation as a premier cloud hosting, infrastructure services, and dedicated server provider helping it amass customers in over 130 countries.

“We surveyed our customer base earlier this year and LA was high on their list of places they wanted us to expand to,” explained Rick Nicholas, VP of Colocation at Hivelocity. “In addition to Los Angeles, New York City was right there at the top of the list. As part of our national expansion strategy we intend to seek opportunities in New York City with the hopes of an announcement there before the end of this year.” 

Hivelocity’s Los Angeles facilities are located in the One Wilshire Building and just across the street at 600 W 7th St which are considered two of the top locations in LA. The two data centers will be interconnected via redundant dark fiber rings operating as one facility, with the ability to operate independently as needed. One Wilshire was recently named one of the top ten network connected buildings in the world by DataCenterKnowledge.com with 1/3 of all traffic between the US and Asia traveling through it.

All employees from RackAlley.com will be retained in the transition, as Hivelocity remains committed to offering a superior customer experience in the Los Angeles hosting market. Hivelocity plans to continue the course that contributed to earning Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast50 and the Tampa Bay Tech Excellence in Service awards in other markets across the United States.
