Communications infrastructure provider and data center operator, Bluebird Network announced that, effective December 31, 2020, it has acquired the ColoHub Data Center, which is previously owned by Geneseo Communications.
2nd data center in the region
ColoHub Data Center is located in Bettendorf, Iowa, and marks the company’s second data center, complementing the company’s recent fiber network expansion throughout Illinois and Iowa.
The new addition will enhance the company’s offerings, creating another option for customers moving applications closer to the edge and establishing a disaster recovery location to Bluebird’s underground data center in Springfield.
The new site also rings new data center options to customers already in the region. Michael Morey, President and CEO, Bluebird Network, said,
“In 2020, we expanded and densified our fiber network infrastructure across several territories throughout the Midwest. Expanding our data center offerings, fortified now with a second facility, is part of our mission to empower businesses and offer a total communications solution.”
