Instor Solutions, a provider of data center infrastructure management solutions, has announced its New Year’s plans to open two new offices-one in Los Angeles and one in San Diego-to meet increased demand for data center services in Southern California.

The increased demand for Instor’s services (including data center retrofits) in Southern California is driven in part by the introduction of attractive energy efficiency and sustainability incentives from utilities and government agencies.

“Instor has managed data center projects throughout the US, and we have always had a strong local client base in the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Bob Hancock, president, Instor Solutions. “Now it is time to expand to meet the needs of our clients in Southern California by assembling a team of data center professionals in Los Angeles and San Diego.”

Instor vice president and Los Angeles-native Shana Meulmester will oversee the expansion. “I could not be happier to bring Silicon Valley’s trusted data center leader to my hometown,” said Shana Meulmester, vice president, Instor Solutions. “I look forward to building the strong and reputable teams that will help enterprises in Southern California implement cost-effective data center efficiency initiatives.”

Instor’s expertise in Green IT best practices makes it well suited to assist enterprises of all sizes with efficiency initiatives. For over 25 years, Instor has served California’s technology hub by providing data center services such as hot-aisle/cold-aisle containment and airflow/power management and monitoring. Instor is currently serving the needs of some of Southern California’s largest health care and biotech companies, as well as non-profits and universities.

The expansion to Southern California closely follows Instor’s new Airflow Division and partnership with Triad Floors.
