Internap has formed a multi-year alliance with Colt Data Centre Services (COLT DCS), an internationally recognized leading carrier neutral data centre operator.
INAP is partnering with Colt DCS in their North London Facility located in Welwyn Garden City, where INAP will build out a standalone, self-contained Tier 3-equivalent Data Centre space. The existing data centre will be fully operational in Q4 after INAP layers in its new cloud stack and network technology.
“Our new UK-based team is really excited about this London Data Centre opportunity, and we view the new alliance as a great fit given Colt DCS’ and INAP’s complementary Tier 3-equivalent data centre footprints,” said Andrew Day, SVP & GM, INAP International Business Unit.
INAP will provide its signature services, including the latest Dedicated Hosting, Managed Hosting and Multi-Platform cloud product set, along with Colocation and Performance IPTM network services.
“We’re thrilled to have INAP sell their infrastructure solutions out-of-the-gate into our North London Data Centre that will be dedicated to them, and at the same time be able to leverage INAP’s data centres notably in North America,” said Ben Tuckwell, Global Director of Channel, Colt DCS.
INAP and Colt DCS will also be partnering to be able to provide Colocation services in each other’s DC footprint globally, with INAP having a strong history of strategic locations in the US and Colt having the same in Europe and APAC.
“INAP is actively pursuing expansion of our existing data centre services business in the EMEA & APAC regions. Colt DCS’ foothold in Europe and Asia gives us a great path to accelerate our speed-to-market and be able to offer our full range of services including multi-platform cloud solutions, dedicated and managed hosting, and colocation and Performance IP network services,” said Isaac Douglas, Director, INAP EMEA & APAC.
