Web hosting provider Lunarpages announced on Wednesday that it has expanded its presence in Irvine, California, through a Latisys data center.

This news comes a month after Latisys announced that it had expanded its US data center space by 72,000 square feet, and officially launched its enterprise cloud hosting product Latisys Cloud.

Lunarpages has added 3,500 square feet of colocation space in the Latisys data center to provide hosting to its 150,000 customer base.

According to the press release, Lunarpages has been using Latisys for colocation and managed IT services since 2009.

“We continue to be impressed by Latisys’ commitment to investing in state-of-the-art technology, infrastructure, and enterprise cloud services that enable Lunarpages to meet and exceed customer expectations,” George Natzic, chief executive officer, Lunarpages said in a statement. “Latisys has proven itself to be a trusted partner, and we look forward to building upon this relationship going forward.”

Latisys secured a $155 million credit facility in December 2011 to fund a data center expansion, and launched its 93,000 square foot data center in Irvine adjacent to its existing 50,000 square foot facility earlier that year. Latisys claims to be the largest data center operator in the Orange Country region. In January, Menlo Equities acquired a 420,000 square foot Orange County data center.
Recently, Lunarpages announced that it was on the hunt for data center space in Austin. It is unclear whether it will acquire a data center, or  acquire space from a colocation provider. Lunarpages has a presence in California, Nevada and Arizona.

“Lunarpages has built a reputation for delivering secure and reliable hosting, and expanding their presence at Latisys’ Irvine data center campus demonstrates our flexible approach to IT infrastructure services is truly resonating with the dynamic needs of web hosting providers — and their customers,” Tom Panarisi, regional VP, west, Latisys said in a statement. “By offering a full range of services from colocation to cloud, we hope to continue to enhance our relationship with Lunarpages to not only support its growth, but further enable it.”
