The datacenter and interconnection provider Cologix has announced its tenth acquisition, moving into the New York metro area for the first time. They will be acquiring Net Access, which operates 200K square feet across three facilities in northern New Jersey.
We interviewed Net Access CEO Raul Martynek here on Telecom Ramblings back in January of this year as the company was about to roll out its 70,0000 square foot Parsippany II data center. The company evolved from a dialup ISP back in the 90s into a data center operator that has become a significant player in the NJ marketplace.
Cologix has been steadily expanding via both organic and inorganic means. Their most recent deal prior to today's announcement was just over a year ago when they acquired Colo5, boosting their presence in Jacksonville and adding new space out in Lakeland. We also interviewed Cologix CEO Grant van Rooyen here last December.
One thing Net Access doesn't yet have that Cologix acquisitions usually do is some sort of established meet-me room or interconnection facility. That doesn't mean they won't add one, but along with the Colo5 deal it does suggest the company's appetite is becoming a bit more omnivorous.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
