Pan-European edge data center provider AtlasEdge has announced the successful acquisition of twelve data centers. The deal is with Colt DCS, a world-class provider of hyperscale data centers across Europe & APAC.
The successful acquisition from Colt strengthens AtlasEdge’s unique portfolio of distributed data centers that are positioned to support localized or low latency applications. AtlasEdge now operates more than 100 data centres across eleven countries in Europe, supporting more than 700 customers and providing connectivity to more than 50 different on-net carriers.
AtlasEdge provides a pan-European data center portfolio that allows customers to design and configure their technology and network infrastructure to meet the growing requirements for lower latency, higher performance and localised solutions. With demand gravitating towards the edge of networks, AtlasEdge’s distributed and highly connected footprint provides a unique solution that is aligned with the next wave of growth in digital infrastructure.
This acquisition further expands AtlasEdge’s coverage and accelerates time to market in several new geographies, as well as establishing a collaboration between AtlasEdge and Colt Data Centre Services, with Colt Technology Services becoming an anchor tenant across multiple facilities. This network-neutral colocation strategy enables AtlasEdge’s customers to optimize their network routes, minimize their bandwidth costs and take advantage of the wide community of cloud, content, technology and enterprise companies present in the facilities.
The portfolio includes data centers in key tier one and tier two markets across Europe, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris and Zurich.
“We are delighted to welcome these sites into our expanding portfolio,” notes Josh Joshi, AtlasEdge Executive Chairman. “We are tapping into an exciting and emerging market where real time data traffic is growing and compute is gravitating to the edge of the network. As this demand builds, AtlasEdge is uniquely positioned to deliver seamless, localised and ultra-low latency digital infrastructure to our customers – from cloud providers to streaming services and enterprises. Our approach is open, carrier neutral and collaborative, and we look forward to working alongside Colt.”
“Demand for data storage and cloud capabilities has never been higher, and so is the need for businesses to scale and find capacity,” adds Niclas Sanfridsson, CEO, Colt DCS. “By restructuring and focusing on our hyperscale facilities, we can meet our customers’ needs on demand with true scalability and efficiency, while meeting their sustainability targets. We are committed to ensuring a sustainable business model for the future and this latest deal will improve the returns on investment across our portfolio, which can then be reinvested into the business.”
