Many tourists come to the city of Las Vegas, Nevada hoping to strike it rich, but most would just be happy to break even. That is not the case with data center provider ViaWest, as the company has taken the entertainment capital of the world by storm, having recently acquired a new facility in Las Vegas that will double the company’s capacity in the area.
ViaWest, one of the largest privately held data center, cloud computing and managed service providers in North America, has acquired the Las Vegas data center of CoreLink Data Centers, LLC, a data center and managed services provider headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. This acquisition will greatly expand ViaWest’s footprint in the Las Vegas area.
“CoreLink’s commitment to customer support and providing customized IT infrastructure solutions aligns closely with the ViaWest mission,” said Roy Dimoff, chairman and CEO of ViaWest. “The addition of these assets expands our presence in the Las Vegas market and enhances our base of established customers. Simply, this investment supports our objective of being a premier technology infrastructure provider in the region.”
This acquisition comes on the heels of ViaWest’s decision to increase its footprint by constructing a 110,000 square foot data center in North Las Vegas. This new facility will be environmentally friendly, utilizing the latest cooling technologies specifically designed for dealing with the Nevada heat. Altogether, ViaWest will boast over 460,000 square feet of raised-floor data center space across 24 facilities in Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Nevada and Utah.
Recently, ViaWest was named as an official partner of the 2012 Pro Challenge cycling race, which takes riders through a magnificent seven-stage course across Colorado and through the Rocky Mountains. The race concluded August 26 in Denver.
