US data center services providers Xand and Access Northeast have merged into one entity that will provide data center services in the nation’s northeast, the companies announced Tuesday.

The combined company will be operating data centers in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts states, providing colocation, cloud and managed services to about 1,000 customers.

Access Northeast CEO Rob Stephenson indicated that a key motivator behind the merger was creation of a comprehensive package of business-continuity services.

“A single customer-centric service provider implementing end-to-end replication, backup and recovery solutions is a very powerful proposition,” he said.

Stephenson will become the combined company’s chief marketing officer and one of its board members. The new entity’s CEO will be David Struwas, who was CEO at Xand.

Xand is property of Abry Partners, a private-equity firm that bought the data center company in October 2011. Access Northeast is one of the largest privately-held managed services providers in New England.

  • The CFD Myth: Why there is no real time CFD.

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    Join DatacenterDynamics and Siemens as we explore the myth of real time CFD and expose the necessity for Real-Time Environmental Monitoring. Description: Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can be used to numerically solve very complex cooling problems in data centers as well as evaluate multiple cooling strategies (cold aisle containment, hot aisle containment, in-line CRAC versus traditional CRAC placement, etc). In order to continually improve in dynamically evolving data center configurations, the CFD model needs to be at the core of any asset management solution and must be fed by real-time monitoring information. The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution instead of an external application in order to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. This presentation will focus on the benefits of a single data model for asset management, real-time monitoring, and CFD simulation; and how it will benefit your bottom line. Agenda: 1.Introduction : Siemens DC Portfolio and Datacenter Clarity LC Suite 2.What is CFD and why CFD is increasing in importance 3.How Datacenter Clarity LC makes CFD practical 4.The CFD myth: CFD versus Real-Time Environmental Monitoring 5.Traditional inputs and results when running a CFD analysis 6.Advanced RCI analytics/metrics with Datacenter Clarity LC 7.Use cases leveraging RCI analytics/metrics 8.Customer testimonials 9.DCIM-driven CFD versus standalone CFD 10.Summary & Q/A
