A longstanding Boise data center business got snapped up by an out of state company recently. Tonaquint Data Centers of St. George Utah purchased Fiberpipe Data Centers of Boise for an undisclosed amount.

Fiberpipe, which launched in 2000 offering home Internet services to valley residents, transitioned primarily to a data center business, providing services like web hosting, disaster recovery and streaming. The company counts clients like Marketron, Title One and others. Founded by Ken Birch, who left computer maker MicronPC, Fiberpipe grew into one of the largest data center companies in the region.

Fiberpipe operates a 45,000 square foot data center off Emerald in Boise.

“I am extremely excited by this acquisition as I am confident that the team at Tonaquint will provide the level of services our customers have expected from Fiberpipe over the years,” Birch said.

Tonaquint says with the Fiberpipe acquisition, it counts clients in all 50 states.

“Boise is such a great market,” Tonaquint CEO Matt Hamlin said. “The acquisition adds to our capacity and geographic presence. Our goals remain the same: provide our customers with the best infrastructure and match it with the best client experience.”
