Colt expands partnership with Equinix in three key regions

Data CentresTop Stories

Colt Technology Services, a digital infrastructure company, has announced new software-driven connectivity in three countries, expanding its longstanding collaboration with Equinix. Businesses now have access to Colt’s On Demand infrastructure interconnecting with Equinix Fabric in Spain, Italy and Sweden, as well as in the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Singapore and Hong Kong. The extended collaboration between Colt and Equinix deepens their long-running commitment to a global partner ecosystem and meets growing demand across key regions.  

The Colt On Demand network interconnects seamlessly and dynamically with Equinix Fabric across Europe and Asia, giving flexible last mile access to Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres and in particular to Equinix Digital Services; offering businesses choice, diversity and visibility of their infrastructure to help them succeed in today’s global digital world. 

Colt is seeing a significant increase in the number of On Demand customers who self-provision their network services, with high double-digit revenue growth in 2022, and this trend is expected to continue into 2023 and beyond. 

Mark Hollman, Vice President for Partner Development and Success at Colt, said: “The network is the catalyst for transformation, for businesses looking to flex, digitalise and stay relevant, but managing this infrastructure can be incredibly complex – especially across multiple countries. Businesses are already facing headwinds in 2023 and the last thing they need is to be held back by lengthy contracts and inflexible services.

“In this latest evolution of our longstanding partnership with Equinix, we’ve invested in joint API development to deliver a simplified, automated and improved customer experience across Colt On Demand and Equinix Fabric platforms. We’re really excited to offer this in Spain, Italy and Sweden as well as the existing regions in Europe and Asia, driving extraordinary connections for our customers.”
