Hivelocity, a provider of dedicated servers, cloud hosting and colocation services, has acquired IaaS provider Rackalley.com. The addition of RackAlley’s assets and data centers provide Hivelocity with a turnkey data center presence in Los Angeles, California.
“We surveyed our customer base earlier this year and Los Angeles was high on their list of places they wanted us to expand to,” said Rick Nicholas, VP of Colocation at Hivelocity. “In addition to Los Angeles, New York City was right there at the top of the list. As part of our national expansion strategy we intend to seek opportunities in New York City with the hopes of an announcement there before the end of this year.”
The two new facilities in Los Angeles will open on September 15, 2017. Considered two of the top locations in Los Angeles, the data centers will be located at 1 Wilshire and 600 Grand. The locations will be interconnected via redundant dark fiber rings operating as one facility, with the ability to operate independently as needed. One Wilshire was recently named one of the top-ten network connected buildings in the world by DataCenterKnowledge.com and boasts that 1/3rd of all traffic between the US and Asia travels through it.
All employees from Rackalley.com will be retained in the transition, as Hivelocity Hosting remains committed to offering “a superior customer experience” in the Los Angeles hosting market. Hivelocity plans to continue the course that contributed to earning a Tampa Bay Business Journal Fast50 award in other markets across the United States.
Hivelocity provides cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and colocation services to customers from over 130 countries worldwide. In addition to Tampa Bay and Los Angeles, Hivelocity provides services in Atlanta and Miami. Their scalable solutions are delivered from CJIS, SSAE16, SOC 1, SOC 2 and HIPAA certified data centers.
