AtlasEdge, a pan-European edge data centre provider, has announced the successful acquisition of 12 data centres. The deal is with Colt DCS, a world-class provider of hyperscale data centres across Europe and APAC.

The successful acquisition from Colt strengthens AtlasEdge’s unique portfolio of distributed data centres that are positioned to support localised or low latency applications. AtlasEdge now operates more than 100 data centres across 11 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 centre 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 optimise their network routes, minimise 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 centres 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” said Josh Joshi, Executive Chairman, AtlasEdge. “We are tapping into an exciting and emerging market where real time data traffic is growing and compute 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, said: “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.”
