Xand and DBSi have merged to create a privately held data center firm in the Northeast. Xand says it will add three premium, raised-floor facilities in Pennsylvania to a trio of data centers in New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut that serve more than 1,000 customers with colocation, business continuity, cloud and managed services.

"DBSi’s impressive facilities, employees and customer base are a natural fit for the expansion of Xand’s Northeast platform," said David Struwas, Xand CEO. "Both companies share a passionate, customer-centric culture and are leading innovators of data center managed services for the enterprise."

The companies say the merger will create an opportunity for businesses of all sizes to deploy regionally diverse primary and secondary IT environments across three major metropolitan areas (New York, Boston and Philadelphia) and four states.

Xand was acquired by ABRY Partners in October of 2011 and then merged with Access Northeast of Marlboro, Massachusetts in March of 2012.

"ABRY is proud to announce DBSi as the newest member of Xand’s leading Northeast data center services platform," said Brian St. Jean of ABRY Partners. "DBSi’s extensive footprint will help Xand expand their market reach throughout the mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions as we continue to support them with capital for future data center builds and acquisitions."
