ColoGuard, a New York City based colocation provider, has announced the completion of a major acquisition, expanding its Brooklyn data center footprint from 20,000 to 50,000 square feet. The acquired colocation facility is 30,000 square feet, with 25,250 square feet of raised floor space, and the remainder of private suites.
The official transfer of ownership has taken place on April 1, 2015. ColoGuard now has a total of three generators, two offering N+2 power, with an additional generator on standby for emergencies. Clients have access to a new “state of the art” meet-me-room.
With this acquisition multiple new carriers have been added to its already diverse array of providers, including, GTT, Time Warner, Atlantic Metro, Verizon Business, Cogent, AT&T and Verizon Core, bringing the total carrier count to fourteen.
“We built ColoGuard from the ground up, and this expansion is part of our continuing strategy to meet and exceed the needs of our growing enterprise clients, while retaining options for our small business sector,” said ColoGuard’s CEO, Ray Sidler. “Clients at the acquired colocation facility will experience no disruption to their existing services, and can expect a seamless transition with expanded managed services now available. Our existing customers can also expect the same dedication to service they have had since 2003, with added redundancy and network density.”
For nearly 12 years, ColoGuard has been a privately held colocation facility, based in the heart of Brooklyn, New York, just minutes from Manhattan.
