VOLTA AND LUXCONNECT FORGE AM­BI­TIOUS EURO­PEAN DATA CEN­TRE HUB AL­LIANCE

Capacity - - Europe -

Colo­ca­tion providers Volta Data Cen­tres in Lon­don and Luxconnect in Lux­em­bourg have forged an al­liance in a bid to con­nect the two most strate­gi­cally im­por­tant com­mu­ni­ca­tion hubs in Europe.

The al­liance is de­signed to com­bine strengths and help com­pa­nies meet the chal­lenges pre­sented by chang­ing reg­u­la­tions and ca­pac­ity fluc­tu­a­tions.

Volta Data Cen­tres has a pur­pose-built fa­cil­ity that sits be­tween Shored­itch and the City of Lon­don. The site, com­pletely re­fur­bished in 2013, pro­vides a se­cure colo­ca­tion plat­form for small or medium size en­ter­prises, grow­ing com­pa­nies, or en­ter­prises look­ing to ful­fil a global am­bi­tion, al­low­ing busi­nesses to con­nect seam­lessly to the world. Luxconnect has four multi-tier (Tier II, III and IV) data cen­tres in the Grand Duchy of Lux­em­bourg cer­ti­fied by the Up­time In­sti­tute. Sev­eral global com­pa­nies from fi­nance, en­ter­tain­ment and on­line com­merce are hosted at their fa­cil­i­ties.

The al­liance is aimed at bol­ster­ing the se­cu­rity and con­ti­nu­ity needed by com­pa­nies in the shift­ing po­lit­i­cal and com­mer­cial land­scapes cre­ated by a fast grow­ing IT ser­vices sec­tor and the po­ten­tial re­struc­tur­ing of the EU fol­low­ing Bri­tain’s Brexit vote.

Each data cen­tre com­pany of­fers high-speed con­nec­tiv­ity and scal­a­bil­ity.

Now the two com­pa­nies can strad­dle two strate­gic hubs, eas­ily ac­cess space when needed and of­fer prospec­tive clients a sim­ple way to ex­pand across two key lo­ca­tions. The fol­low­ing car­ri­ers are present in both data cen­tres: BT, Level 3, Co­gent, Ver­i­zon and Colt.

Both com­pa­nies have com­pleted due dili­gence on each other’s fa­cil­i­ties which can now be ex­tended to ex­ist­ing and new clients. Both com­pa­nies have fit­ted out space avail­able ready for early oc­cu­pancy.

“We are glad to an­nounce this strate­gic al­liance be­tween the two com­pa­nies,” said Volta man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Jonathan Arnold. “Now end users can ex­pand and be present in two of the most strate­gic com­mu­ni­ca­tions hubs in Europe.”

“Lux­em­bourg and Lon­don are fully com­ple­men­tary,” added Luxconnect CEO Roger Lam­pach. “We found Volta to be the ideal com­pany to work with, both in its phi­los­o­phy and its tar­get sec­tors. It will pro­vide a very use­ful of­fer­ing to our part­ners look­ing for space for their clients in Lon­don.”
