AtlasEdge is expanding its European presence with the acquisition of 12 data centres from Colt Data Centre Services.
AtlasEdge operates more than 100 data centres across 11 countries in Europe, in key tier one and tier two markets. It now supports over 700 customers, providing connectivity to more than 50 different on-net carriers.
Formed through a recent joint investment by Liberty Global and DigitalBridge, AtlasEdge states its recent acquisition will establish a collaboration between itself and Colt Data Centre Services, which will become an anchor tenant across multiple facilities.
Josh Joshi, AtlasEdge’s Executive Chairman, commented: “We are delighted to welcome these sites into our expanding portfolio. 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.”
Niclas Sanfridsson, CEO, Colt DCS, added, “Demand for data storage and cloud capabilities has never been higher, and so is the need for businesses to scale and find capacity. 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.”
