Colt builds bridge between US, Europe and Asia data centres

Partnerships across the Atlantic will enable customers on both sides of the ocean to tap into data centres in the three regions.

Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) has announced it has expanded its customer referral programme into the US, which will see the operator partner with US-based partners to provide customers with access to data centre facilities beyond Europe and Asia.

Colt DCS provides partners and their customers with data centre capacity and carrier-neutral colocations services in 29 data centres across Europe and Asia.

In return, Colt DCS’ customers will gain access to US-based data centres to expand their global reach.

Matt Cantwell, Director of Portfolio Propositions at Colt DCS, said: “Our portfolio has been designed in keeping with our vision to be the most customer-centric data centre operator. Customers will no longer need to pay a premium for buying colocation services within the same sites as the major cloud services providers.”

“The extension of the customer referral programme to the US is a result of the increased demand we have seen from our customers for global services. Similarly, there is huge potential to roll-out our best-in-class capabilities in the US, as partners look to us to help them broaden their market opportunities in Europe and Asia.

“The extension of the customer referral programme, the recent expansion of our data centres and our private connectivity solutions demonstrate our ongoing commitment to delivering a world-class service.”
