Founded in 1989 as American Internet Services, Nfinit offers data center, cloud, security, connectivity, and managed services from facilities in California and Arizona. It operates two data centers in San Diego, and has space in a Digital Realty facility in Phoenix, and the One Wiltshire carrier hotel in Los Angeles.

“We are extremely pleased to join forces with a very talented and quality Nfinit team,” LightEdge CEO Jim Masterson said. “Thanks to Nfinit’s reputation as the incumbent and largest colocation operator in the San Diego market, this strategic acquisition positions LightEdge for continued expansion to further grow our North American presence.”

“At Nfinit, we have worked to build a customer base that relies on world-class IT services around the clock,” Nfinit CEO Phil Kenney said. “We are excited to come together with LightEdge to continue providing the quality service we have over the years. The combination of LightEdge and Nfinit brings a customer and employee-focused company, driving intelligent outcomes for our clients and their businesses.”

Bank Street served as exclusive financial advisor to Nfinit in connection with this transaction.

Founded in 1996, Des Moines-based LightEdge was acquired by GI Partners from the Anschutz Corporation in September 2021.

Later that month it acquired Cavern Technologies, a data center operator based in Lenexa, Kansas.

With the closing of this deal, LightEdge will operate a total of 11 data centers; as well as the Lexana location, it currently has facilities in Des Moines, Iowa; Ohama, Nebraska; Austin, Texas; and Raleigh, North Carolina.
