Colt DCS and Leaseweb Team Up for UK Market Expansion
The tie-up will allow Leaseweb to use Colt's data centre services to gain more UK customers
Colt Data Center Services (DCS) and Leaseweb have announced a partnership that will enable the cloud hosting provider to expand its services further into the UK market.
Although Leasweb already has a decent customer base in the UK, it wants to piggyback off Colt DCS's co-location services to broaden its horizons in the region. It was seeking a provider that offered great value at a reasonable rate so the company could grow at scale, shortly after launching in the UK.
Additionally, Colt DCS's partner programme offered a unique opportunity for Leaseweb to find new potential customers that may already be using Colt DCS's data centres. It also wanted to use a provider that allowed customers to use whichever platform they needed to power their apps and services.
“Our fundamental belief is that applications should be platform agnostic, offering our customers choice among different technologies, and Colt DCS was one of the very few providers that was able to successfully address this and provide for our colocation needs,” said Eltjo Hofstee, managing director UK at Leaseweb.
“The company also has a good reputation for listening to its customers, and translate their needs into results. With Colt DCS’ expert services on our side, we believe that we have the right support in place to expand in the UK market and take our business to greater heights.”
Ben Tuckwell, global channel director at Colt Data Centre Service added that its main focus is providing flexible services to its customers, which aligns perfectly with what LeaseWeb was looking for.
“Our flexible and resilient carrier-neutral services will provide LeaseWeb with the necessary capabilities on its journey to establish itself as a key cloud hosting provider in the UK market,” he explained.
Although the partnership will primarily be focused on the UK market, the two cloud firms could explore expanding into new markets in the future.
