Peak 10, a provider of hybrid IT infrastructure solutions spanning colocation, interconnection, cloud, managed solutions and professional services, has completed its acquisition of hybrid IT solutions company ViaWest. Peak 10 + ViaWest‘s suite of assets now span 20 domestic and international markets and is comprised of 40 “highly-redundant” data centers, 2.7 million square feet of data center space, 13 cloud nodes and more than 10,000 cross connects.
Customers would benefit from increased scale and broad geographic coverage. The combined company now counts more than 1,000 dedicated employees.
“Today marks the first day of an exciting new chapter for Peak 10 + ViaWest,” said Chris Downie, chief executive officer (CEO) of the combined company. “We’re thrilled by the response we’ve received from customers and partners since announcing the acquisition just seven weeks ago. We look forward to taking the next step in the evolution of this company, as we help enterprises nationally solve their most difficult IT infrastructure challenges. Our mission stays the same: providing our customers with the best technology and customer experience possible, and we believe we’re in a great position to do so.”
To support the company’s expanded geographic footprint and strategic growth, Peak 10 + ViaWest has broadened its senior leadership team. Chris Downie will remain chief executive officer while Nancy Phillips will serve as the executive chair of the board for the combined company.
“By joining forces, Peak 10 and ViaWest have combined some of the smartest minds in the IT industry,” said Nancy Phillips. “Our highly experienced executive team brings a demonstrated track record of success and is well positioned to lead the combined organization to even greater heights. As one of the leading national hybrid IT infrastructure and solutions providers, we look forward to our combined growth and delivering significant benefits to our thousands of customers.”
