DartPoints, an owner and operator of edge colocation data centers designed to facilitate carrier-neutral interconnection that improves access to and performance of data, has closed on its acquisition of Immedion, first announced in March. Immedion is a provider of colocation, cloud, and managed services with eight data centers in seven markets throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana.
DartPoints’ mission is to provide high-performance and cost-effective edge data center solutions to solve the needs of thriving local markets throughout the United States. The Immedion acquisition propels DartPoints’ vision and capabilities of bringing edge interconnection colocation and data centers further into tier 2 and tier 3 markets. Carrier-neutral interconnections serve as vital meet-me-points, enabling high-performance access to content, cloud, applications, and other networks, proven to be a catalyst for digital transformation across a wide-variety of industries.
Actively deploying fully managed internet exchanges (IXs), powered by the world-class DE-CIX multi-service interconnection platform, DartPoints effectively shortens the path to access content and application through direct connection to IXs in Chicago, Dallas, New York, and Richmond, increasing efficiency and simplifying routing to reduce latency. The acquisition also bolsters enterprise cloud services, managed services, and colocation services to support and foster local digital ecosystems in these markets.
