Data center provider Peak 10 has acquired a data center in Louisville, Kentucky, its second in that market, the company announced today.

The Charlotte, North Carolina-based service provider specializes in colocation and managed services in secondary US markets, and the deal expands its presence in a secondary market with heavy enterprise presence. Louisville is home to headquarters of numerous Fortune 500 companies, including Yum! Brands, KFC, Kindred Healthcare, and Humana.

The 33,000-square foot data center already has an anchor tenant. Peak 10 did not name the tenant, describing it as a “communications and data services provider.” Companies that fit that description and have data centers in Louisville include Cogent, tw telecom, and Level 3 (in the process of being acquired by CenturyLink).

Peak 10, owned by the San Francisco-based private equity firm GI Partners, now operates 16 data centers across 10 markets, primarily in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The company recently appointed Chris Downie, former CEO of data center provider Telx, to replace its outgoing chief executive and founder David Jones.

Corrected: A previous version of this article said Peak 10 operated about 30 data centers. A company spokesperson has clarified that 14 of them are "pods" rather than full-fledged data centers, so the total number of data centers has been changed to 16.
