Private equity firm GI Partners announced this week that it has completed its acquisition of Peak 10, an IT infrastructure and cloud provider that sells through the channel.
Charlotte, North Carolina-based Peak 10’s offerings include data center services, private and enterprise cloud infrastructure, and managed services. It operates 24 data centers in 10 key markets in the U.S., primarily serving midsize enterprises around the world.
Peak 10 just last week broke ground on a new 60,000-square-foot data center in Tampa, Florida. It will support the region’s budding economic development and enable more businesses to benefit from Peak 10’s secure, tailored cloud and data center services. The new facility will bring Peak 10’s entire Tampa footprint to more than 129,000 square feet with three separate facilities, and Peak 10’s total Florida footprint to roughly 230,000 square feet.
