Peer 1 Network Enterprises, Inc., a worldwide IP network infrastructure provider, announced today the company has established a 25,000-square-foot data center in Los Angeles, California to better serve the city's thriving online entertainment and gaming industries. Digital Realty Trust ( owns and manages the building in which the data center is housed.

The new location strengthens Peer 1's ability to deliver online peace-of-mind solutions to companies based in and around Los Angeles or requiring a presence in the area. Effective immediately, businesses ranging from entertainment and gaming, to VoIP and hosting will be able to protect their server investment, achieve 100% total business continuity and increase their web audience satisfaction with high performance, uninterrupted Internet connectivity through Peer 1's new Los Angeles facility. ServerBeach Ltd, Peer 1's self-managed dedicated server business unit will become a tenant immediately.

The state-of-the-art facility is located in the epicenter of Los Angeles' downtown telecom core. Geoff Hampson, Peer 1's president and CEO states, "There is no doubt that Digital Realty Trust is providing us with a superior facility with multiple layers of infrastructure redundancy. The space has excellent fiber connections to all the major carrier hotels in Los Angeles and this, in combination with the superior infrastructure, ensures that Peer 1 customers will receive the full 100% uptime guarantee that we provide in all of our facilities."

Timothy Doherty, Peer 1's vice-president of business development based in Los Angeles said, "Fully built out data centers in major metropolitan areas are becoming scarce as the outsourcing model has continued to gain market share and built capacity is absorbed. We were fortunate to be able to establish this datacenter in a world-class facility in such a location, considered a hub of so many Internet-dependent industries."

This growth was financed by the private placement previously announced in a news release dated July 20th, 2005.
