By purchasing four data centers, DSTOR LLC makes its debut as a provider of colocation, disaster recovery and hybrid cloud connectivity solutions for Enterprise, Life Sciences, Manufacturing, and Government industries. The owner-operated company was founded by industry veteran Kevin Mulqueen after making a series of acquisitions of existing data center facilities in King of Prussia, Reading, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware, respectively.
The King of Prussia location serves as one of the four foundational data center facilities. DāSTOR’s acquisition of DataBridge’s King of Prussia facility does not include other operating sites. DataBridge continues to own and operate two data center facilities in Silver Spring, MD and Aurora, IL. The King of Prussia, Pennsylvania site is a Tier 3 facility with a N+1 power distribution system intended to accommodate colocation, cloud, and hybrid colocation solutions, among others.
“Prior to our conversations about the King of Prussia data center sites, I was negotiating to acquire two other facilities that, when combined with these two, enabled us to fulfill our vision for DāSTOR; a comprehensive, one-stop-shop solution for colocation, hybrid cloud connectivity, security, and disaster recovery,” said Kevin Mulqueen, CEO of DāSTOR. “The opportunity to build a company and lead a team to transform existing facilities into robust ecosystems, is truly exciting to me. Today we are thrilled to unveil DāSTOR and are planning to continue to make further acquisitions over the next 12 months.”
IPR Secure, DataBridge Sites
DāSTOR’s facilities now include two data centers acquired from IPR Secure, a Tier III data center provider offering IT infrastructure and data center solutions in Wilmington, DE and Reading, PA; and two sites in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. One of the company’s sites in King of Prussia is part of a larger business complex serving a variety of businesses across the Life Sciences sector. The other King of Prussia facility was acquired from Databridge Sites. All four sites bring with them an existing client base across the healthcare, manufacturing, and government sectors.
DāSTOR’s newly acquired facilities are connected to key interconnection hubs including 401 N. Broad Street in Philadelphia, providing direct on-ramps to providers like Microsoft Azure, Sungard and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“Especially this King of Prussia site is an amazing data center in an ideal location for enterprise businesses in the Mid-Atlantic region to house their IT infrastructure,” added Mr. Mulqueen. “We are excited to include this facility as one of our anchor sites to ensure primary, secondary and disaster recovery solutions are available to companies embracing digital transformation.”
