Power Savings Free Up Space at 365 Main

Colocation provider 365 Main says it has space available in its flagship data center in San Francisco for the first time since late 2006. The new capacity is a result of several large customers “graduating” to the company’s new facility across the bay in Oakland, and energy savings created by server consolidations by several customers.

San Francisco has historically been one of the strongest markets for colocation space, according to 365 Main VP of marketing Miles Kelly. “We’re in deep conversations with existing customers to take some of that capacity,” said Kelly. “We expect it to go quickly. San Francisco is a tight data center market.”

Two large customers have relocated to 365 Main’s Oakland data center, which opened in early 2007 and has more than 80,000 square feet of raised-floor technical space. Kelly wouldn’t say which customers, but previous announcements identify blog hosting provider Six Apart and social network Hi5 as customers that have migrated from San Francisco to Oakland.
