A partnership agreement has been signed by ATM S.A. and Linxdatacenter. As a part of the agreement, both the organizations will start selling each others’ colocation services in Central and Eastern Europe. 6 data centers in CEE with more than 23,000 sq m comprise the total area of technical facilities at ATM and Linxdatacenter. These include data centers in Warsaw, Katowice, Moscow, Tallinn, and Sankt Petersburg. With 50 MW of available power, the data centers also feature redundancy and emergency power systems.
Colocation services are provided by ATM S.A. under the ATMAN and Telehouse.Poland brands. ATM is the top company in the Polish data center market. New colocation agreements have been signed by ATM in the last quarter for a total net amount of $ 0.67 million.
ATM’s new F3 data center building at ATMAN Data Center in Warsaw is being used to sell colocation services. Covering an area of 2,200 square meters, this state-of-the-art facility includes two floors of server rooms and a power supply block. Direct Free Cooling and Dynamic Free Cooling are featured by the new data center building. By the end of this quarter, the F3 building is expected to be released into operation.
One of Russia’s largest and most technologically advanced data centers in Sankt Petersburg will be soon launched by Linxdatacenter. Covering an area of 12,000 sq m of technical facilities, the facility includes more than 8,000 sq m of colocation and hosting space. Linxdatacenter’s new data center in Warsaw will also be soon operational. Several customers have already signed contracts with Linxdatacenter.
In a release, Maciej Krzyzanowski, Vice President of ATM, said, “Together, we have the telecommunications infrastructure that is unique in Europe and meets highest worldwide standards. There is no other operator in this region who could meet the scale and quality of our services. This makes us a natural partner for every international company that wants to operate in Europe, and to Western telcos who want to expand their business towards the East.”
According to Krzyzanowski, a good bottom line for both the organizations will result due to the combined commercial and marketing efforts.
