Pulsant keeps up the acquisition spree with Amito data center buy
Pulsant has completed the acquisition of Reading-based data center and cloud services provider Amito. The acquisition is the latest move in Pulsant’s geographic expansion plans and its ambitions to bring edge computing to every business in every region of the UK.
The acquisition is Pulsant’s second within two months, following the acquisition of a Manchester data center and associated clients from M247 Limited. The deal includes the company’s 15,000 sq ft and 800 rack data center in Reading which provides 2.9MW of IT load capacity and has been built from the ground up with energy efficiency in mind.
Pulsant already operates an established network of 11 regional edge data centers across the UK, delivering secure, scalable and resilient cloud, colocation and networking services. The move further strengthens Pulsant’s presence in the South East of England, adding to existing data center sites in Croydon, Maidenhead, Milton Keynes and Reading.
Rob Coupland, Chief Executive Officer at Pulsant, says: “The South East is a strategically important location for our clients and will continue to drive much of the UK’s economic activity. With Amito’s well established presence, we can continue to build the UK’s edge computing platform and bolster our scale and capacity in the region, this will become increasingly important as businesses embrace edge computing and demand increases.”
Ed Butler, Chief Executive Officer at Amito, says: “We are excited about Pulsant’s strategic plans. Amito’s established and extensive infrastructure provides a strong foundation for the company to expand its edge computing platform across the South East whilst delivering the best connectivity and cloud-based services to clients.”
