(The Hosting News) – Want to increasingly expand your hosting business? Easy, combine with another one. That’s exactly what hosting providers Xand and Access Northeast did recently. Announcing the move on Tuesday, the companies said the merger makes them “one of the largest privately held data center companies in the Northeast.”
Access Northeast maintains two data center locations in the U.S. state of Massachusetts along with one in Connecticut. Meanwhile, Xand has a data center presence in the Westchester County, New York.
Discussing the matter in press release, Xand CEO David Struwas said the two companies “share a strong commitment to providing excellent service and innovative solutions to our customers.”
“The synergies between our firms will only serve to reinforce this message to the northeast marketplace,” Struwas commented. The merger also means a realignment of company leadership. Current Access Northeast CEO Rob Stephenson moves to the position Chief Marketing Officer for the combined operation.
Both companies emphasized the move would help provide enterprises with “better implementation of their strategic business continuity and disaster recovery plans” across the states both companies form a presence in.
Xand’s solutions include colocation and managed hosting while Access Northeast provides enterprise hosting, colocation, disaster recovery and more. The combination of services should make for quite the expanded portfolio. The merger of the companies follows an October acquisition of Xand by Massachusetts-based private equity ABRY Partners. Financial terms of the merger were not disclosed in a press release from the companies. For more information on the matter, go here (accessnortheast.com).
