Dallas’ Evoque Data Center Solutions Closes Acquisition of Cyxtera

Evoque and Florida-based Cyxtera will combine to form a leading data center company with more than 50 locations, mostly in North America.

Evoque, a Dallas-based provider of comprehensive colocation, connectivity, and infrastructure solutions, has completed its previously announced acquisition of Cyxtera’s data center portfolio.

Evoque and Florida-based Cyxtera will combine to form a leading data center company with more than 50 locations, mostly in North America. No financial details were released.

“Combining Evoque and Cyxtera is a strategic step that aligns seamlessly with our vision for data infrastructure investments,” Udhay Mathialagan, board chair at Evoque and CEO, Global Data Centers, Brookfield Infrastructure, said in a statement. “This move not only swiftly amplifies the joint organization’s market presence, but also diversifies its product portfolio and broadens its customer reach worldwide, with unrivaled connectivity, security, and scalability.”

Mathialagan said that by “integrating Cyxtera’s capabilities and valuable assets, we’re providing essential capacity for current demand while also laying the groundwork for our future expansion and advancements.”

Spencer Mullee, Evoque’s current CEO, will serve as the CEO of the new joint organization, which is part of Brookfield Infrastructure’s global data center platform.

“This strategic move marks a defining moment for our company,” Mullee said in a statement. “We firmly believe this venture will bring significant benefits to both Cyxtera’s and Evoque’s customer bases. Together, we will provide enhanced services, stronger reliability, and unmatched growth opportunities for our customers and partners.”

Mullee added, “As we progress with the integration of the two companies, it is business as usual as we continue to provide our customers with the excellent support they expect. We are committed to making this transition as seamless as possible for our valued customers, partners, and team members.”

Via the acquisition, Evoque said it will incorporate 40 additional data centers, most of them in the United States and Canada.

Evoque specializes in delivering a comprehensive suite of colocation and data center services that prioritizes connectivity, security, and redundancy.
