Digital Bridge, a Florida investor that’s rapidly expanding in the data center services market, is close to announcing its acquisition of Vantage Data Centers, a Silicon Valley-based wholesale data center provider currently owned by the private equity firm Silver Lake Partners, Reuters reported, citing anonymous sources.
If closed, this would be a second data center provider acquisition by Boca Raton-based Digital Bridge this year. Earlier this month, DataBank, which it bought last year, announced acquisition of C7 Data Centers in Utah. The acquisition of Dallas-based DataBank in July was Digital Bridge’s entry into the data center market.
Vantage operates data center campuses in Santa Clara, California, and Quincy, Washington.
Silver Lake has been considering selling Vantage since at least last year.
Vantage and Digital Bridge representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
