Colt and Digital Realty

Empowering enterprises to transform and future-proof their business

Transforming enterprise together

Digital Realty and Colt have partnered in order to help enterprises transform and future proof their business by adopting agile, hyperconnected, high-performance hybrid architectures.

We connect enterprises to business and technology communities, public and private clouds, data and users, to deliver enhanced performance, application delivery and service excellence to transform your business, wherever you are

The shift in the way data is being generated, consumed, stored and used is causing enterprises to move away from traditional IT towards distributed architectures. Businesses now need the ability to connect easily to technology partners and service providers, while also ensuring the best possible connectivity between their users and their data.

The explosion of cloud-based services means businesses are now also consuming more cloud resources and connecting to multiple clouds for varying workloads. Alongside all of this, there is a need to deliver optimum performance regardless of location, application, network, or service, with agile infrastructure that can scale and adapt
