“We are very excited to bring the Hivelocity experience to all of our new customers,” explained Steve Eschweiler COO of Hivelocity. “Our customer centric focus is what continues to foster our growth and what allows us to do things like we accomplished today. I hope our customers, new and old, are just as excited as we are about today’s news. Every one of our customers will benefit from the addition of our 9th, 10th and 11th data centers in what is now 7 highly strategic domestic markets. Soon, our new data centers in Dallas, Seattle and New York will be privately connected to our other data centers in Los Angeles, Miami, Tampa, Atlanta and New York City. This private connectivity between all of our data centers gives us the ability to maximize network performance and allows our customers to exchange data between geo-diverse solutions free, fast and securely. Our new customers from Incero will now have services previously unavailable to them like Private Cloud, Rapid Restore, Managed Services and the ability to instantly deploy Bare-Metal in more than twice as many markets as before,” he added.Do you know of any other companies involved in acquisitions?
