AtlasEdge has announced the acquisition of German data centre provider, Datacenter One.
The acquisition includes two data centres in Stuttgart, one in Dusseldorf and another in Leverkusen, with further sites under construction. The newly acquired facilities will join AtlasEdge’s existing locations in Berlin and Hamburg.
DC1’s senior management team will remain in place following the acquisition, with Wolfgang Kaufmann, CEO at DC1, to join AtlasEdge’s management team.
“This is a highly strategic transaction for AtlasEdge,” said Giuliano Di Vitantonio, CEO at AtlasEdge. “Germany is an important part of our expansion plans and a market that has seen customer demand rise across multiple metros. Acquiring DC1 transforms AtlasEdge into Germany’s leading distributed platform, with ready-to-sell capacity in key locations across the country. We look forward to working with our new colleagues and continuing to grow our footprint across the continent.”
Kaufmann added, “The joint expertise of DC1 and AtlasEdge, together with the increased scale and customer offering that this deal enables is a real win. We have experienced first-hand the rising demand and growth potential in the German market, and this is a fantastic next step for us. Our combined locations, ethos and ambition are all the right ingredients, and we’re very excited to be joining AtlasEdge.”
