Cosentry has acquired Milwaukee-based Red Anvil, a managed data center provider.
Cosentry says the purchase will expand its IT service offerings in Wisconsin by enhancing current data center services with new disaster recovery, colocation, cloud services, managed hosting and other managed service offerings.
Cosentry will have a total of nine data centers located in five Midwestern markets and will also interconnect Red Anvil’s data center with its other locations to provide high-speed, redundant data backup and disaster recovery services.
“Cosentry is excited to enter the Milwaukee market with the acquisition of Red Anvil, a data center provider who has established themselves as a regional leader over the last 10 years,” said Brad Hokamp, Cosentry’s CEO. “Cosentry has close to two decades of experience providing market-leading data center services throughout the Midwest. The combination of the two companies will give businesses in Milwaukee and the surrounding area access to world-class IT solutions and a great alternative to Chicago or larger city providers.”
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
