365 Data Centers acquired Atlantic Metro Communications, which provides tailored colocation, network, and cloud services to large and mid-size enterprises. The transaction solidifies 365’s IaaS provider position in the Eastern U.S.
A milestone event for both companies
With the acquisition, 365 adds a data center facility in Herndon, Virginia, along with partner-operated colocation space and available power in northern Virginia and Los Angeles. The transaction delivers 65 additional network points-of-presence (PoPs) and several international locations. In addition to this, the deal contributes cloud platforms in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Miami and Los Angeles.
Bob DeSantis, Chief Executive Officer of 365 Data Centers, said,
“This transaction is a milestone event for both companies. 365’s acquisition of a highly respected business with a track record of providing customers with high touch, hybrid infrastructure solutions is a tribute to Atlantic Metro’s management and employees, who will become part of the 365 team. 365 remains strategically disciplined with a focus on network-centric colocation assets and complementary network and virtual services in edge markets within the northeast quadrant of the United States, Tennessee and Florida.”
365 intends to serve its customers with 13 redundantly interconnected data centers and 5 additional partner-operated facilities and from 86 PoPs and 7 cloud platform locations. According to the announcement, Atlantic Metro’s founders and key leaders will join the 365-executive team, reporting to CEO of 365 Data Centers.
