Our Story


Data102's mission is to facilitate the success of Local, Regional, and National organizations by providing turn-key Internet and IT solutions designed to meet our customer's changing needs.

Optimum Network Services was founded in 1997 as a result of the telecom consolidation of the late '90s. ONS started as an idea, a lease on small datacenter space, and no customers, but grew readily and steadily. In 2004 ONS brought on some new staff, and in early 2006 Auctoris Holdings purchased ONS and a new era began.

Since 2006, ONS experienced substantial changes. We became Data102 in 2008 to more accurately reflect what we do - data - and where we do it - 102 South Tejon. Holding to its roots, Data102 has continued to grow at a strong pace expanding its existing facility, opening a second colocation space, and then executing another expansion in the primary facility. Data102 has successfully transitioned from a legacy telco remnant into the region's leading enterprise colocation and managed services provider.


Customer Service & Relationships are the foundation and the source of longevity of Data102. We believe that building strong partnerships is the only way to be truly successful at any business venture, and we strive to make sure that every interaction we have with our customers reflects this.

When our Customers win, we win. A simple mantra, but critical to our success. When our customers do well, we benefit. When we do well, our customers benefit. By ensuring that our customers are consistently getting the results they need, we all succeed.
