German Company Buys Long Island Colocation Facility

ancotel GmbH, operators of a telecommunications and data network hub in Europe, has acquired Long Island Data and Recovery Center, a Long Island-based colocation and interconnection facility located in Westbury, NY.  This acquisition marks ancotel’s first foray into the United States’ data center and colocation market. The company will leverage Long Island’s telecommunications infrastructure to provide communication opportunities throughout the Long Island and New York metro area to become a gateway to Europe.

Long Island serves as a key landing point for submarine cables that connect North America to Europe. Until recently, network infrastructure has often bypassed Long Island to traverse into and through Manhattan. Jason Schafer, senior analyst datacenters for Tier1 Research, said in a statement, “Downtown Manhattan has been facing datacenter, power, and real-estate capacity constraints, which is pushing business outwards from downtown to areas such as northern New Jersey and Long Island."

“ancotel is known as one of the most successful companies for telehousing and interconnection services in the world,” said John Reynolds, managing director of ancotel USA and former managing director of Long Island Data and Recovery Center, in a statement.  “The company is committed to its investment on Long Island. They have plans to transform this facility into a critical meet-me-point for companies, cable operators, carriers, service providers and international companies.”
