8 Apr 2019 by Mike Allen

ScaleMatrix, the United States’ leading provider of variable density colocation and hybrid hosting services, has acquired Instant Data Centers, formerly Elliptical Mobile Solutions, an Arizona based company focused on providing ruggedized micro data centers for the Edge.

The ever-evolving requirements in the IT industry have led the San Diego-based high-density hosting specialist to expand its services. “Across the spectrum of industries, our clients are increasingly requiring that their IT resources to be closer to where the decision processes and data creation is occurring, especially as artificial intelligence continues to gain traction,” said Chris Orlando, ScaleMatrix Co-Founder and CEO.

“Our acquisition of Instant Data Centers / Elliptical Mobile Solutions sets the stage for us to be able to help customers truly deploy any hardware, at any density, anywhere! ScaleMatrix and DDC now have one of the most robust, full-featured line ups of cabinet technology in the world, ranging from modular platform-scale solutions to highly ruggedized micro-cabinets which can go absolutely anywhere,” added Chris Orlando.

The move expands ScaleMatrix’s product line to include ruggedized, mobile, and small form factor solutions, which enable the deployment of IT infrastructure in virtually any environment imaginable.  Ruggedized micro-modular data centers can support extreme workloads outside a traditional colocation environment.

Commenting on the acquisition, Gavin Miller, CEO of Instant Data Centers said, “The IDC/Elliptical team is thrilled to have been welcomed into the ScaleMatrix and DDC family, and we are excited about the opportunity and breadth of capabilities this transaction creates for our combined customer base. The integration of the IDC product line into the DDC cabinet technology portfolio brings mobility, ruggedization, and variable form factor capabilities to an already powerful line up of modular data center solutions.”

The companies did not disclose the financial terms of the deal. Instant Data Centers CEO Gavin Miller will become the chief sales and marketing officer for ScaleMatrix’s DDC brand. According to ScaleMatrix, the company has plans to aggressively expand its data center and cabinet technology businesses, with eyes on global expansion through both direct and partner channels.
