hi5 Expands at 365 Main Oakland Facility

Fast-growing social network hi5 will expand its data center footprint by taking space in 365 Main’s new facility in Oakland, Calif., the two companies said today. San Francisco-based hi5 has been a tenant at 365 Main’s flagship San Francisco data center since 2004. The expansion is the latest indicator of the growing importance of social networks as major users of data center space, and follows major infrastructure expansions by MySpace and Facebook.

hi5 was founded in 2003 and is now the 8th most-trafficked website in the world according to Alexa. The company will lease an additional 2,500 square feet of space at the Oakland data center, which opened in September 2007.
