Pulsant has announced the acquisition of data centre and cloud services provider, Amito.
As part of the deal, Pulsant will gain Amito’s 15,000 sqft, 800-rack Reading data centre, which provides 2.9 MW of capacity.
This comes after the company’s recent purchase of a Manchester data centre from M247 in January.
Pulsant’s new facility in Reading brings its network of regional UK edge data centres to a total of 12, including sites in Croydon, Maidenhead and Milton Keynes. The company’s expansion follows its acquisition by Antin Infrastructure Partners from Oak Hill Capital and Scottish Equity Partners in the middle of 2021.
Rob Coupland, Chief Executive Officer at Pulsant, said, “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, added, “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.”
