ViaWest to buy Las Vegas data center of CoreLink Data Centers

Infotech Lead America: ViaWest, a provider of data center, cloud computing and managed service in North America, has acquired the Las Vegas data center of CoreLink Data Centers.

The acquisition will double ViaWest’s total current capacity in downtown Las Vegas.

“CoreLink’s commitment to customer support and providing customized IT infrastructure solutions aligns closely with the ViaWest mission. 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,” said Roy Dimoff, chairman and CEO of ViaWest.

The acquisition will assist ViaWest to expand its presence in the Las Vegas market.

In May, the company announced its intent to develop a 110,000 square foot facility in North Las Vegas, adding to its data center footprint.

The North Las Vegas facility will be one of the greenest data centers in the United States, incorporating the latest in ViaWest’s cooling technology, custom designed for the Las Vegas climate.

Upon completion, ViaWest will offer more than 460,000 square feet of raised floor data center space across 24 data centers throughout Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, and Utah.

“ViaWest has established a reputation and track record for exceptional service and support. This is consistent with the CoreLink approach to its customers and we are confident this level of customer focus will be maintained during and after the transition,” said Jay Snider, CEO of CoreLink.
