Access Northeast Acquires RezZiliant

(Ping! Zine) – Access Northeast, a leading New England Data Center and Managed Services Provider, announced today that it has acquired the hosting division of RezZiliant Inc. of Waterbury, Connecticut.

With the acquisition of RezZiliant hosting and their two Data Centers in Waterbury and Hartford, Connecticut, Access Northeast now leases and operates four facilities throughout New England totaling over 40,000 square feet of space. The additional Connecticut Data Centers will assist Access Northeast with the expansion of their Parthenon Cloud footprint for customer replication and disaster recovery services.  

“With the acquisition of RezZiliant’s Connecticut Data Center operation, Access Northeast has significantly increased the number of clients whom we can now service throughout New England,” said Rob Stephenson, Access Northeast’s CEO. “Our Massachusetts enterprise customers will have access to geographically diverse facilities, allowing them to house redundant systems for ease of management across a single Access Northeast network.  Additionally, they’ll have access to another Parthenon Cloud virtualization node from which to deploy primary or secondary applications.”

“After much deliberation, we selected Access Northeast as RezZiliant’s Data Center partner for the divestiture of our managed hosting division in Connecticut,” said Mark Golino, RezZiliant President and CEO. “This deal allows us to concentrate on our rapidly growing healthcare software offering for hospitals and medical providers, while allowing Access Northeast to run our Data Center hosting business – a business they exclusively focus upon.” 

Under the terms of the deal, Mr. Golino has signed a long-term contract to remain as both a consultant and a customer of Access Northeast. Access Northeast will retain the majority of RezZiliant hosting personnel, with other technical resources remaining at the RezZiliant software division.

The acquisition will also provide Access Northeast with an expanded Data Center footprint for attracting customers in the major metropolitan markets throughout the East Coast.
