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.

  • Is Hyperconvergence a Viable Alternative to the Public Cloud?

    Thu, 31 Mar 2016 15:00:00

    Enterprise IT leaders are right to be skeptical of such bold claims. After all, is it really possible to deliver an on-premises infrastructure that delivers the same agility, elasticity, and cost-effectiveness of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services? If you’re following the traditional IT model, with its many siloes and best-of-breed point solutions, the answer is, most likely, no. To truly deliver a viable alternative to public cloud, you need to look beyond traditional IT. Join Evaluator Group and SimpliVity to learn more about how hyperconverged infrastructure can deliver the efficiency, elasticity, and agility of public cloud."
