Acquisition extends CentriLogic’s data center footprint and operations into Southeastern United States
Lenoir, North Carolina, USA – June 13, 2013 – CentriLogic, a trusted provider of international hybrid hosting and data center solutions, has acquired North Carolina data center operator and hosting services provider Dacentec Inc.
Founded in 2009, Dacentec Inc. operates a 23,000 square foot purpose-built data center in Lenoir, North Carolina, and offers a comprehensive suite of dedicated hosting, co-location, and technology-neutral green cloud data center services. CentriLogic will integrate these services with its own hybrid hosting, managed services, and cloud computing solutions. The addition of this facility, which is located in the Southeast’s most active data center cluster, will provide CentriLogic with direct access to the numerous large organizations with enterprise-class workloads located throughout the region. CentriLogic will also utilize this facility to provide its existing customers with an additional U.S.-based cloud availability zone, along with geographically dispersed managed hosting, co-location, and disaster recovery solutions.
CentriLogic’s acquisition of Dacentec is strategic to its international expansion program, and strengthens its network of interconnected data centers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Dacentec’s location in North Carolina was especially attractive to CentriLogic due to the region’s low risk of natural disaster, skilled high-tech workforce, reliable power grids, and ease of accessibility.
“Dacentec is a leading regional provider of hosting services, has won a number of customer contracts and operates in a data center hub that has been validated by investments from companies like Facebook and Apple,” said Robert Offley, CentriLogic’s President and CEO. “This acquisition gives us the immediate ability to offer our hybrid hosting solutions to companies located throughout the southeastern region of the United States, and fulfills the demand from current customers requiring data center space beyond our existing North American facilities in Western New York and Southern Ontario, Canada.”
The 23,000 square-foot data center is SSAE 16 Type 2 compliant, has access to abundant power on Duke Energy’s low-cost power grid, and is designed with multiple layers of redundancy across all levels of infrastructure. Other assets acquired by CentriLogic in the acquisition include Dacentec Inc.’s staff, its existing office space, and current customer contracts.
“We are delighted to become part of CentriLogic and offer our customers a one-stop shop for a multi data center presence and international hosting solutions throughout four countries” says William Groh, VP Operations for Dacentec Inc.
The North Carolina data center is CentriLogic’s third data center in the United States and the eighth worldwide. CentriLogic’s international footprint now covers four countries and three continents, with additional expansion activities planned for the remainder of 2013.
