Cologix has announced the acquisition of the JAX Meet Me Room (JMMR), the most densely connected data center in Jacksonville, Fla. The acquisition adds a strategic and scaled meet-me room and data center in a market set to emerge as a key interconnection point in the southeastern U.S.
“The submarine cables slated to land in Jacksonville create an opportunity for networks to deliver traffic directly to South America without the additional cost, latency and hurricane risk that comes with traversing through Miami,” said Grant van Rooyen, president and CEO of Cologix.
With this acquisition, Cologix operates in 16 network-neutral data centers in Dallas, Jacksonville, Minneapolis, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Cologix supports more than 600 customers and offers more than 330 network choices for its customers.
The company sells through channel partners.
