While colocation may seem straightforward there are a lot of nuances that most people overlook. Checkout our Guide for colocation in Los Angeles to help you make the right decision.
CoreSite Los Angeles
CoreSite builds mission critical facilities which they offer for very competitive rates with good interconnectivity and many certifications. Although they don't offer managed services, having access to thee Open Cloud Exchange will allow firms to connect their colocated infrastructure to cloud providers.
Our take. They excel at colocation and interconnectivity. Even with their robust build costs they don't appear to charge a premium for their space. CoreSite doesn't offer managed services directly.
Equinix - Los Angeles
It's tricky to write specifically about Equinix as they have multiple locations in Los Angeles. Equinix is most known for its amazing carrier connections and peering inside the data center. Businesses that require massive interconnections between various networks rely on Equinix to give them solid access. Major public cloud providers also are available through direction connections.

Digital Realty Trust
Digital Realty operates mission critical facilities globally. Their acquisition of Telx expanded their already large footprint.
Our take. You get much value for your IT spend with DRT. They offer flexibility in their power density which allows firms to save some money if they don't need high density computing environments. They feature excellent interconnection options and they have extremely robust power, network and support.
Hosting.com offers colocation and managed services for mission critical applications.
Our take. Their managed service offerings contain a complete portfolio of offerings and we've noticed that they host several well known SaaS firms. Their colocation offerings aren't as plentiful (geographically) as others but the facilities are solid and highly redundant and mission critical.
