VSS Invests in QuadraNet, a Full-Service Data Center Provider


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, New Jersey, Atlanta, and Chicago.
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

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."

IT and private cloud services; Hostway, a provider of web hosting
