ViaWest acquires CoreLink's Las Vegas data center

ViaWest, a privately-held data center provider, on Monday acquired CoreLink Data Centers' Las Vegas-based data center, a move that ViaWest said will double its current capacity in downtown Las Vegas.

Roy Dimoff, Chairman and CEO of ViaWest, said in a release announcing the deal that "The addition of these assets expands our presence in the Las Vegas market and enhances our base of established customers."

Las Vegas has been a particular growth target for ViaWest with an announcement in May to begin building a new 110,000 square foot facility in North Las Vegas. At that time it also added 23,000 square feet of space to its complex in Hillsboro, Ore., to deal with cloud services growth.

Besides adding space to its growing portfolio, the provider is playing up the environmental attributes of the new center, which it says incorporates cooling technology that's specifically designed to accommodate Las Vegas climate.

When it completes this acquisition, ViaWest will have a total of 460,000 square feet of raised floor data center space across 24 data centers throughout five states: Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, and Utah.
