Co-Location NewsDALLAS – Colo4Dallas, a leading colocation service provider, was named a second-time winner of the Dallas 100™ Award by the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at the SMU Cox School of Business with a ranking of 50th. The Dallas 100 Award is an annual event that identifies and honors the 100 fastest growing privately held companies in the Dallas area. The award was presented during a ceremony at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center on November 20, 2008.

“We’re proud to be recognized once again as a Dallas 100 winner,” said Paul VanMeter, president and chief technology officer of Colo4Dallas. “Maintaining the highest level of customer service and attention to detail during rapid growth can be a challenge, but thanks to our team of dedicated employees we’ve been able to do it.” VanMeter also attributes the company’s sustained growth to the support of loyal customers who continue to refer new business or have expanded their own colocation space within the data center. He added, “It’s been very gratifying to see some of our original customers transition from a single server to a cabinet or more of space — as their business has grown, we’ve been able to accommodate their needs seamlessly.”

Colo4Dallas was ranked 50th among the 100 elite companies named to this year’s Dallas 100. In 2007 the company ranked 94th among the top 100 with its 2008 ranking climbing 44 places. To qualify for the Dallas 100, a company must be an independent, privately held corporation with headquarters in the Dallas Metroplex. Winners must also demonstrate a 3-year sales history that reflects year-over-year growth and have credit reports and character satisfactory to the Dallas 100 selection committee.

Founded in 2000, Colo4Dallas is a SAS70 type II audited provider that serves a diverse customer base including enterprise customers, businesses in the financial, health care and technology sectors, as well as Web hosting providers. Earlier this year, Colo4Dallas was recognized by Inc. magazine as #590 in the publication’s annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. The company’s robust growth has prompted the recent expansion of its data center space, which now includes over 106,000 square feet of secure, climate-controlled space at three facilities.
