Managed Data Holdings (MDH) is already expanding its data center footprint. The company, which is backed by private equity firms and acquired Data393 earlier this month, is pumping up the infrastructure at one of its existing properties. Irvine, Calif.-based managed hosting provider InteleNet Communications, which was bought by MDH in October, has started construction on a data center expansion that will add 12,000 square feet of space engineered to support high density computing customers.
Intelenet had planned the expansion for later in 2008. With its acquisition by Managed Data Holdings, the new space is now expected to be ready for customers in March. InteleNet has already begun pre-selling space in the expansion space.
“This is an exciting time of growth for InteleNet,” said Carlos Oliveira, General Manager of InteleNet. “The additional energy and cooling capacity of this increased space will allow us to satisfy not only our existing customers’ growth plans but new customer demands well into the future. We expect to attract regional businesses seeking a high density data center not only in Irvine and Orange County but also in the outlying Los Angeles metropolitan area.”
InteleNet was founded in 1994, and provides on-demand managed hosting services from a 55,000 square foot carrier-neutral data center located in Irvine. InteleNet’s customers include both small and mid-size businesses and Fortune 500 companies hosting complex e-commerce platforms and financial/ERP systems.
Managed Data Holdings was founded in June 2007 by Catalyst Investors and Great Hill Partners. MDH’s strategy is to invest in data centers in Tier I and Tier II markets in the U.S. to meet enterprise demand for managed hosting, colocation space and disaster recovery services.
