365 Data Centers has acquired a data center on Long Island, New York from mindSHIFT Technologies (a Ricoh company). The highly resilient 24,000-square-foot data center is a Tier III facility that will support complex IT and cloud demands. The New York City metro market is a prime international destination for carriers, content providers and enterprises, with dense network connectivity via nearby subsea cables and close proximity to major carrier hotels.
The Long Island data center acquisition brings 365’s total number of data centers to 12, increases its carrier network PoPs to 156, and further expands its network-centric presence in the data-intensive Northeast. mindSHIFT will remain actively involved at the data center, continuing to offer its managed IT infrastructure and support services and technologies to its customers locally on Long Island and throughout the United States.
This deal comes just four months after the company’s last acquisition of a data center in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Both recently added data centers are approximately 40 miles from New York City in opposite directions and further 365’s disciplined eastern U.S. market strategy.
As part of the agreement, mindSHIFT will become a long-term customer of 365 and continue to leverage the Long Island data center to provide mindSHIFT’s customers with stable and reliable colocation and connectivity services.
“We’re thrilled to add this recently constructed, top tier data center to our IT infrastructure portfolio, count mindSHIFT among our valued customers, and welcome mindSHIFT’s facilities employees to our team of facility and service professionals,” said Bob DeSantis, CEO of 365 Data Centers. “Our early acquisitions provided a platform that the 365 team transformed into a highly competitive, customer focused, and scalable business. This in turn enabled committed growth capital to fund the two recent acquisitions and others to come in 2020. The Long Island data center will further accommodate the highly dense colocation, network, and cloud requirements of our customers and support the internal growth we have in store for 2020.”
