As part of our continuous commitment to thrill our customers by offering the best technology and latest innovations in the hosting industry, InMotion Hosting will be moving its West Coast data center to a new state-of-the-art facility in downtown Los Angeles.
Relocating the servers will impact all accounts hosted at InMotion Hosting’s West Coast data center, but these moves will be performed in waves and outside of regular business hours so as to minimize downtime.
Customers will be notified of their designated move date via email. We will also be sending out multiple reminders in the days leading up to their move date. Any customers hosted on multiple servers will receive an email notification for each wave they are involved in.
Upon completion of the moves, every server will enjoy enhanced benefits such as faster uplink speeds upstream, advanced network switching, newer PDUs, superior reliability, and other world-class improvements. The data center also includes increased redundancy, network enhancements, and more power overall. All backed up by more powerful generators to ensure your server always receives the required power.
The goal of this move is to accelerate our modernization efforts allowing us to operate more effectively in meeting your technological needs, both now and in the future.
What to Expect
This event impacts all hosting accounts housed at our West Coast data center.
In order to minimize downtime, these moves will take place in waves over the course of several weeks, and will be performed outside of normal business hours.
Each server will be securely relocated by a member of our data center operations team. Our personnel will stay with your server during the transition to the new facility until server connectivity is fully restored.
Due to the logistics involved with transporting these servers, we are not able to honor requests for specific move dates or timing. If you have any questions about the move or would like to inquire about a more precise timeline for your server move, please contact [email protected].
About The New Facility
On top of a safer and more reliable infrastructure, the new West Coast data center also features physical connection points to one of the world’s most prominent telecommunications networks and backbones, One Wilshire.
One Wilshire is located just blocks away from the new facility. It is considered the premier telecommunications hub of the Western United States and is noted within the international telecommunications industry as the most important point of connectivity between the United States and the Pacific Rim.
Additionally, this transition continues to reduce InMotion Hosting’s ecological footprint by moving our West Coast data center to a facility that has been recognized for its sustainability efforts as an L.A. Green Business.
Overall, this upgrade adds to InMotion Hosting scalability and presents opportunities to enhance our network infrastructure. By doing so, we can continue providing you with fast, reliable, and secure hosting services that exceed your expectations.
