EdgeConneX says it has acquired the Linxdatacenter facility in Warsaw, Poland. The move will help EdgeConneX improve services to its network, content, and cloud service provider customers in Central and Eastern Europe as well as local demands. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The carrier-neutral Linxdatacenter Warsaw will support requirements ranging from single racks to large custom cages or pods, with capability to scale. It also offers connectivity to the neighboring LIM-Building ecosystem via a diverse fiber path.
“We are very excited to announce our expansion into Warsaw and to work with Linxdatacenter on a smooth transition to continue the high customer service levels already in place,” commented Dick Theunissen, managing director, EMEA, at EdgeConneX. “As we continue to expand globally, we are prepared to meet the diverse needs of our customers to enable them to deliver the fastest and most reliable cloud, content, network and other services to their customers.”
“We are pleased that our Warsaw Data Center clients will be served in the future by EdgeConneX,” added Heiko H. Koop, CEO of Linxdatacenter. “We look forward to transitioning our Warsaw Data Center and the local support team, which will help ensure the seamless integration of customers into the EdgeConneX business. The divestment of the Warsaw Data Center suits our 2020 business strategy whereby we focus on our cloud business and maintain our Russian assets.”
EdgeConneX suggested that it will continue to look for acquisition opportunities in Europe, but that such activities will be “selective, based on specific customer demand, that drives the company to particular markets.”
