Recently, online data center industry news provider Data Center Knowledge reported that with support from private equity firm ABRY Partners, data center provider Xand is extending its presence to a fourth state in the Northeast region. The company is acquiring Pennsylvania-based DBSi. Consequently, Xand is doubling its available square footage to 400,000 square feet across six strategically located data center facilities, according to the DCK report.
The report indicates that Xand will add three raised floor facilities in Pennsylvania to an already impressive trio of data centers in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts and caters to over 1,000 customers who use its c-location, cloud, business continuity and managed services.
The DCK report quotes private equity firm ABRY Partner Brian St. Jean as saying, “ABRY is proud to announce DBSi as the newest member of Xand’s leading Northeast data center services platform. DBSi’s extensive footprint will help Xand expand their market reach throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions as we continue to support them with capital for future data center builds and acquisitions.”
Xand, which is a data center service provider based in Westchester County, N.Y., was acquired in October 2011 by ABRY Partners. Since then, ABRY has made several significant investments in the data center and communications space. Consequently, in April, Xand acquired New England’s Northeast Access.
Likewise, Bethlehem, Penn.-based DBSi provides managed hosting and disaster recovery services to clients in the healthcare and financial industries.
In a statement, David Struwas, Xand’s CEO added, “DBSi’s impressive facilities, employees and customer base are a natural fit for the expansion of Xand’s Northeast platform. Both companies share a passionate, customer-centric culture and are leading innovators of data center managed services for the enterprise.”
DBSi’s current CEO William Bachenberg concluded, “The combination of DBSi and Xand will enable our customers to capitalize upon enhanced cloud, business continuity and managed services offerings, as well as additional facilities and resources to better meet their growing IT infrastructure requirements.”
