Remember how Managed Data Holdings (MDH) accelerated the data center buildout at Intelenet, which it acquired in October? MDH is now following a similar strategy with its latest acquisition, colocation specialist Data393, which announced Tuesday that it is accelerating the addition of 10,000 square feet of data center space in its Denver facility. The company said the expansion is targeted specifically at meeting the growing requirements of its existing customers, and will be completed by April 2008.
“The demand for colocation and managed hosting continues to grow at an attractive rate,” said Brett Jones, General Manager of Data393. “We’ve heard from our current and potential customers about their needs for higher density power and cooling to support blade technology. Simultaneously, we are accommodating more growth space as businesses consolidate computing infrastructure from their offices to our data center. Our investment meets those needs with increased power and cooling while delivering greater options for tailored colocation bundled with high touch managed services.”
Data393 will increase the total amount of raised floor space to a total of approximately 30,000 square feet in its facility in the Inverness Business Park in southeast Denver.
Managed Data Holdings (MDH), which was founded in June 2007 by Catalyst Investors and Great Hill Partners, and bought Irvine, Calif. provider Intelenet Communications in October. 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.
