In a deal that further boosts its presence in the growing Salt Lake City market, colocation and managed hosting provider ViaWest will acquire SingleEdge, the company said today. The acquisition was ViaWest's second deal for a Salt Lake City-based provider, as the company bought the Utah assets of Consonus in October.
The ViaWest expansion follows the Denver-based company's acquisition by Oak Hill Capital earlier this year.With the acquisition, ViaWest will increase its footprint to seven data centers encompassing approximately 120,000 square feet of usable raised floor in the greater Salt Lake City area.
"SingleEdge has demonstrated strong growth and a high level of customer satisfaction," said Roy J. Dimoff, ViaWest’s Chairman & CEO. "Following the completion of our acquisition of Consonus, we felt that acquiring SingleEdge would solidify our emphasis in this region and best position ViaWest to meet the growing demand of the Utah market."
SingleEdge’s assets include a 14,700 square foot data center facility. Bob Newman, ViaWest’s Senior Vice President & Utah General Manager will be working closely with SingleEdge president Chris Call in overseeing the integration of SingleEdge.
"The acquisition by ViaWest will offer both our customers and our employees significant growth opportunities,” said Call.
With the acquisition of SingleEdge, ViaWest now operates 20 data centers spanning a 5 state footprint which includes Colorado, Texas, Utah, Nevada, and Oregon.
