Tuesday, 08 August 2017 10:45


Peak 10 Inc. (“Peak 10”) has completed its acquisition of ViaWest, Inc. (“ViaWest”). The deal positions the combined company as a leading national provider of hybrid IT solutions including colocation, interconnection, cloud, managed solutions and professional services to more than 4,200 customers nationally. The combined solution sets of the two companies will help organizations optimize their journey of IT transformation while simultaneously balancing cost, scalability, compliance and security. Peak 10 announced the acquisition on June 13, 2017.

“Today marks the first day of an exciting new chapter for Peak 10 + ViaWest,” said Chris Downie, chief executive officer. “We’re thrilled by the response we’ve received from customers and partners since announcing the acquisition just seven weeks ago. We look forward to taking the next step in the evolution of this company, as we help enterprises nationally solve their most difficult IT infrastructure challenges. Our mission stays the same: providing our customers with the best technology and customer experience possible, and we believe we’re in a great position to do so.”

Peak 10 + ViaWest’s robust suite of assets now spans 20 domestic and international markets. The company now comprises 40 highly-redundant data centers, 2.7 million square feet of data center space, 13 cloud nodes and more than 10,000 cross connects. These capabilities, coupled with over 1,000 dedicated employees, underlie the steadfast reliability of its solutions. Customers will benefit from increased scale and broad geographic coverage, accelerating the company’s overall commitment to growth and reinforcing its customer-first approach.

To support the company’s expanded geographic footprint and strategic growth, Peak 10 + ViaWest has broadened its senior leadership team. Chris Downie will remain chief executive officer. Nancy Phillips will serve as the executive chair of the board for the combined company.

“By joining forces, Peak 10 and ViaWest have combined some of the smartest minds in the IT industry,” said Nancy Phillips. “Our highly experienced executive team brings a demonstrated track record of success and is well positioned to lead the combined organization to even greater heights. As one of the leading national hybrid IT infrastructure and solutions providers, we look forward to our combined growth and delivering significant benefits to our thousands of customers.”
