Altus IT, the leading carrier-neutral data centre provider in Croatia, has been acquired by Interxion, a Digital Realty company.
Interxion is a European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions. Headquartered in the US, Digital Realty supports the data centre, colocation, and interconnection strategies of customers across the Americas, EMEA and APAC.
Altus IT's highly connected data centre, located in Zagreb, which has recently added the network nodes of leading global cloud service providers to its footprint, boasts access to a portfolio of more than 100 customers, approximately 50 connectivity providers (including five tier-one carriers) and two main internet exchanges. This, says Interxion, establishes Altus IT as one of the most interconnected communities within the region.
This transaction, say the partners in the deal, provides new and existing customers of Interxion an initial gateway into southeast Europe through access to one of the most interconnected data centres in the region.
Altus IT, whose team will remain with the business, offers a wide variety of support solutions that allow organisations to enhance their business, IT and cloud strategies. The company serves as a connectivity hub, connecting telecoms, customers and partners, while opening up new business opportunities and facilitating the rapid establishment of partnerships.
This purchase bolsters Digital Realty's access to a global footprint of more than 700 connectivity providers in over 280 data centres across 22 countries. According to the Data Centre Dynamics website, the acquisition marks Digital's first entry into Croatia. It adds that the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
