NEW YORK, NY – VSS, a private investment firm, today announced its investment in QuadraNet, a full-service data center provider that offers managed services, both private and public cloud solutions, IaaS deployments, and traditional colocation and IP transit services. QuadraNet’s services span across the United States in well-known peering-exchange locations, including: Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, and New Jersey. Along with physical presences in each of these locations, they also offer services out of various “virtual Points-Of-Presences” (POPs) allowing streamlined service deployments in other locations, such as New York, Virginia, Missouri, Arizona and overseas in Amsterdam.
QuadraNet was founded almost two decades ago in 2001 by Ilan Mishan. As the company grew, they became a dedicated provider in geographically diverse bespoke services, known historically for their competitive offerings in the colocation marketplace. From single-server rackspace offerings, cabinet space (fractional and full cabinets), all the way to fully tailored private suites that are built out of compliance and client requirements.
Additionally, QuadraNet is well-known in the marketplace for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions; now available both in a traditional fashion as well as with virtualization options that provide clients with unwavering flexibility when it comes to delivering the right solution for the specific service role and performance requirements.
QuadraNet’s long-standing history has always been intrinsically involved in the bandwidth and IP Transit marketplace. Through the relationships formed organically over time with all the major carriers in their strategically located data centers that are well-known peering-exchange points, QuadraNet effectively leverages their relationships and history to provide unparalleled Layer 2 IP Transport and Layer 3 IP Transit solutions to their clientele through the most popular and sought out carriers in the market, both domestic and international (e.g. Equinix, Zayo, Coresite, Telefonica).
Lastly, an increasing amount of QuadraNet’s growth has been driven by their focused efforts expanding from the SMB space into offering high-quality Enterprise Solutions; deployments that are completely architected for meeting the higher-availability requirements and compliance requirements of a wide-range of enterprises and industries.
“We look forward to working with the VSS team, leveraging their experience in IT and cloud services to propel QuadraNet’s growth,” said Ilan Mishan, CEO of QuadraNet, further elaborating, “VSS’s investment will be key in expanding geographically and providing our clients with even higher levels of service and satisfaction.”
Trent Hickman, VSS Managing Director, added, “QuadraNet has grown impressively and we see a terrific opportunity to assist them in further expanding their reach and deepening their penetration of existing markets. We are thrilled to partner with Ilan Mishan and the strong team he has built over the years. We’re excited to leverage our experience in their next phase of strong growth.”
