Data centres at the heart of Europe’s cities

Close to business and close to your customers

About Us

Vision & History

We are a leading European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral data centre services, focused on delivering value to our customers by building profitable communities of interest that enable revenue growth and by being responsive to our customers’ needs.

We support the requirements of customers in a range of sectors including cloud, communications, digital media and financial services, as well as systems integrators and enterprises.

We will continue to offer outstanding customer service and deliver exceptional data centre performance.  We will maintain our leadership in data centre design, construction, ongoing operation, maintenance, sustainability and management, embracing innovation to ensure our data centres are state-of–the-art.
 
We develop communities of interest  (or ‘hubs’), where like-minded businesses can come together in our data centres: the close proximity of their infrastructures driving greater performance, lower costs and enabling customers to build closer business relationships, faster, and more profitably.

Because we remain neutral across carriers, different cloud solutions and platforms, we can offer our customers a wide choice of connectivity providers and cloud platforms to give the flexibility, performance and cost efficiencies needed in today’s market.

We are committed to sustainability in all our data centres, and are always looking for new ways to optimise energy efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions and cut waste.

Established in 1998, we’ve expanded rapidly to create 42 data centres in 13 cities across 11 countries, giving us the largest reach across Europe enabling you to access more than 78% of the EU GDP.  We have more carrier-neutral data centres in Europe than any other provider and we also lead in connectivity, with over 600 connectivity providers having a direct presence in our data centres.

In 2011 we were publically listed on the New York Stock Exchange and also established our Indirect Channel Programme in the US.

The success of our approach is reflected in our financial record. Since 2006 we’ve enjoyed 28 consecutive quarters of growth in organic revenue and EBITDA, despite the most severe economic downturn in decades.
