Data center company Cologix has acquired colocation and disaster recovery provider Colo5 with more than 225,000 sq ft across two enterprise-grade, hurricane resistant facilities in Jacksonville and Lakeland, Florida.

This is Cologix’s ninth acquisition adding to its growing carrier-neutral North American data center footprint.

Cologix now has a total data center and disaster recovery footprint of 125,000 sq ft in Jacksonville alone which the company said solidifies its position in the Jacksonville area.

In addition Cologix said it can now offer 100,000 sq ft of data center and disaster recovery space in Lakeland, which is centrally located between Tampa and Orlando at an elevation of 197 ft above sea level.

Cologix said Lakeland's elevation and proximity to major market centers make it a natural location for primary or secondary IT sites for enterprises in Tampa, Orlando and Miami,  Cologix plans to expand in Florida within 18 months.

Colo5 CEO Doug Recker said customers from both companies will gain benefits from the acquisition.

“Customers will gain three key advantages: a unique access to the market-leading carrier density at Cologix’s Meet-Me-Room in Jacksonville’s primary carrier hotel, a certainty of accelerated capital investment and seamless access to a platform of state-of-the-art data centers throughout North America,” Recker said.

“The Colo5 team is excited about joining Cologix to create a new chapter of growth supporting the business community in Central and North Florida”.
