Why California for Data Center Colocation?
California’s Silicon Valley is home to most of the top tech brands in the world. It’s legacy for tech startups is legendary, and the infrastructure behind it is staggering. While California is known for its earthquakes, the server hugger mentality is strong in California and colocation data centers are abundant.
Fibernet’s Silicon Valley Colocation Data Center
In the heart of Silicon Valley is San Jose and the San Jose International airport (SJC). Many of the top wholesale and multi-tenant data center colocation providers have facilities in the regions surrounding the airport (as a simple Google earth map will reveal, with all of the power generators and cooling infrastructure visible from above).

California Colocation Disaster Risk
California is home to a large number of tech companies and data centers in spite of the proximity to the San Andreas and other fault lines. Earthquakes are common and building codes require the facilities to withstand the forces of an earthquake. Only earthquakes pose a disaster risk for colocation in California as the state is a low risk for hurricanes, tornadoes and other destructive natural disasters. Fibernet’s data center facility is purpose built to code to withstand earthquake and other natural disaster forces.
In spite of the disaster risk profile, most every tech company in the Bay Area will host at least some of their data infrastructure in a nearby data center facility. And Fibernet has the perfect data center facility for world-class California colocation.
