Recent news

Latisys has commenced construction of a massive TIER III data center measuring 93,000 square feet, and located in Orange County. This construction effort is powered by Latisys' successful refinancing, with its 65 million dollar credit facility enhanced to 110 million dollars.

When construction of the data center is complete, Latisys will be the single largest operator in the data management industry in Orange County. The new data center is located almost next door to Latisys' present center in California.

The facility is highly equipped, with ten megawatts in power, and supporting power densities of up to 250 watts per square foot.[5]
