Hawaiian Telcom today completed its acquisition of SystemMetrics Corp., a local data center, for $16 million.

"We are really excited to close this transaction and take and important step in meeting our goal to be the preeminent data center services provider in the state of Hawaii," said Eric Yeaman, Hawaiian Telcom's president and chief executive officer.

SystemMetrics has 6,500 square feet of data center capacity, with room for expansion. The company becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hawaiian Telcom.

Good luck to y'all at the POTS telco over there.
After abandoning HawTel 8 years ago, before moving, I don't want anything to do with this nightmare of a organization. From a customer, vendor, and employee perspective.
We need competition for Oceanic, but not sure HawTel is up to the task.

Good for them (and us). We need more local jobs and local customer service @ home is a great start. Kudos, Hawaiian Telcom.

Look at all those grinning fat cats. Funny how HawTel articles are all about shareholders, stock market pricing, and purchases. Is there a servcie or pursuit of good service anywhere on their priority list? Just wondering...

Hawaii Telcom needs to become more competitive. It seems that they do not invest in their infrastructure first. For one thing, their internet service does not cover many areas of Honolulu, even areas where you would think would be priority. Further, they need to move on their television service. The longer they take, the more they lose out.
