ColoHouse Acquires Data102

We are thrilled to announce that we have been acquired by ColoHouse, a global colocation services provider headquartered in Miami, FL.

Our purpose is to help our customers be successful by providing high quality services at an approachable price, and doing so in a scalable, effective, efficient way. Technology solutions can be transformative for an organization, allowing them to scale operations, protect its data, and provide excellent customer experiences. But defining your technology stack can be complex. Executing on it can be even more complex. Joining forces with ColoHouse, a company that is passionate about helping companies navigate their technology needs, is what takes us into the next chapter of our story. Stay tuned to see where our growth and innovation take us from here.

I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for putting your trust in Data102 over the last 17 years (a few of you, more than that!) and for bringing us to where we are today. I helped build this company from the ground up: since 2004 as Optimum Network Services, through a rename, numerous acquisitions, and growing pains, I have loved Data102. Our team loves what we do, and we along the way we have made an army of friends. And now, we are all very excited to take this next step with a bigger team, more locations, new challenges, and a stronger-than-ever commitment to excellence.

With my sincerest gratitude and a hearty "Cheers!" --

Randal Kohutek
CTO

What is going to happen to the Data102 brand?
Data102 will become part of ColoHouse. Brand integrations and mergers take time and we will be updating Data102 customers as we go - soon you will see co-branded logos, then a transition to the ColoHouse logo. The Data102 website will still be up and functioning as per usual until further notice.
