San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – July 12, 2006 – Hosting, colocation and Internet service provider firm, Cyberverse, Inc., has signed a lease agreement that significantly expands its presence in 600 West 7th Street, of corporate data center and Internet gateway, Digital Realty Trust, Inc.
Digital Realty Trust’s downtown Los Angeles Internet Gateway and Turn-Key Datacenter Facility is more than doubling Cyberverse’s presence, by adding 3,500 square feet of fully redundant datacenter space from Digital Realty Trust’s existing stock of turn-key space on the fourth floor of the building.
According to the company, located in the central business district of downtown Los Angeles, 600 West 7th Street is one of the premier technology facilities in the Western United States, offering state-of-the-art datacenter and telecommunications real estate for mission critical computing and network infrastructure. The 450,000 square foot facility features robust electrical systems, HVAC infrastructure and telecom network access as well as advanced physical security and next-generation building automation systems. Digital Realty Trust’s Turn-Key Datacenter Facilities are move-in ready, physically secure facilities with the power and cooling capabilities to support critical enterprise applications, offering scalability from one hundred square feet to over one hundred thousand square. Digital Realty Trust’s facilities in North America and Europe feature true carrier and managed service provider neutrality and metered power, and the facilities are also fully managed by its world-class operations and engineering teams to support 24/7 mission-critical applications.
Jay Smith, Vice President of Cyberverse commented, ”Demand for Cyberverse’s colocation, hosting and connectivity services has been very strong and we have quickly sold out all of the available space in our original third floor space in 600 West 7th Street. This newly leased space on the fourth floor will allow us to immediately begin meeting the newest orders we have from customers seeking our services. Working with Digital Realty Trust has made a lot of sense for Cyberverse not only because of the quality of the turn-key facilities, but also because we can rely on Digital Realty Trust to handle day-to-day management and operational responsibilities in the facility. That is a significant benefit because it frees us up to focus on customers, devoting our full attention to their needs. Having a partnership like that with the building owner is a major competitive advantage for our team.”
Michael F. Foust, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Realty Trust added, ”Los Angeles continues to be a strong market for highly-improved datacenter space, which is harder and harder to find particularly for companies that are seeking space for significant applications. 600 West 7th Street is an ideal location not only because our datacenter space is truly turn-key, but also because the facility is large enough to provide maximum flexibility as customer needs evolve. We have worked closely with Cyberverse to assess their current and future needs and to create a flexible model that ensures the company can fully support the growing demand for its services.”
In addition to its data center in 600 West 7th Street, Cyberverse also operates high-end, mission-critical data centers in Digital Realty Trust facilities in San Francisco and Dallas.
Digital Realty Trust, Inc. owns, acquires, repositions and manages technology-related real estate. The Company’s 49 properties contain applications and operations critical to the day-to-day operations of technology industry tenants and corporate enterprise data center tenants. Comprising approximately 10.0 million rentable square feet, including 1.2 million square feet of space held for redevelopment, Digital Realty Trust’s property portfolio is located throughout the United States and Europe with one property in Canada.
