Cologix acquires Net Access

Cologix said it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Net Access, LLC, a colocation and workspace recovery provider with over 200K gross SQF across three enterprise-grade facilities in Northern New Jersey.

The acquisition adds scale to Cologix´s network neutral data center platform, which now includes 24 data centers across nine North American markets (six in the US and three in Canada).

Cologix´s expansion into Northern New Jersey complements its approach of focusing on unique, growing markets that offer alternatives to legacy data center hubs. These markets are seeing positive demand trends from Internet content moving closer to the end users and enterprises outsourcing IT deployments to colocation facilities for the first time. The three Net Access data centers are approximately 30 miles outside New York City, over 250ft above sea level and connected via a dark fiber network that extends to key carrier hotels for access to robust connectivity options.

The company now supports over 1,600 customers across its North American data center platform, including 700K SQF across 24 data centers in 9 markets. It operates network neutral data centers in Columbus, Dallas, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Minneapolis, Montreal, Northern New Jersey, Toronto and Vancouver.

Net Access was a portfolio company of private equity firm Seaport Capital. Seaport Capital and Net Access have been represented in this transaction by investment bank DH Capital.

Cologix Inc. is a network-neutral interconnection and colocation data center company headquartered in Denver.
