LightEdge Looks to Acquire Connectria to Support Hybrid IT Infrastructure

LightEdge, a leading provider of secure cloud and colocation, is acquiring Connectria, a provider of multi-cloud infrastructure and managed hosting solutions, adding six data center locations to LightEdge’s existing footprint of 12 highly interconnected facilities across eight U.S. markets.

The acquisition—LightEdge’s fourth since GI Partners’ investment in 2021—is the latest demonstration of LightEdge’s strong and growing leadership role in the data center and cloud infrastructure sector, according to the company.

“With this acquisition, LightEdge becomes one of the only secure and compliant infrastructure providers in the country offering both hybrid colocation and tailored multi-cloud solutions,” said LightEdge CEO Jim Masterson. “The acquisition extends LightEdge’s colocation and private cloud offering into public cloud services, while bringing together two incredibly talented and diverse teams and two highly complementary product suites, geographies, and customer bases. We expect this acquisition to further enhance our customer experience, and to that end, our top priority is to continue providing high-level service to our existing and new customers, while seamlessly integrating the companies.”

Connectria’s deep experience in IBM, AWS, and Microsoft Azure public cloud hosting complements LightEdge’s strengths in delivering colocation, enterprise cloud, connectivity, and enhanced network security.

“Both LightEdge and Connectria have established themselves as successful, fast-growing innovators that put security first within their product sets,” said Connectria CEO Amar Patel. “Both companies are also known for their strong company cultures, employee engagement and empowerment, and close ties to customers and suppliers.”

The transaction is expected to close before the end of April.
