Digital Realty Adds Colt Connectivity To Drive Superior Performance For Its Singapore Data Centers

SINGAPORE, January 24, 2018

Digital Realty, a leading global provider of data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, announced today the addition of significant new connectivity services to its Singapore facilities from Colt Technology Services (Colt), a world-class, global high-bandwidth network and voice services provider. With connections to most of the submarine cables landing in Singapore, Colt provides reliable and high-quality networks for Digital Realty’s data centers in East and West Singapore.

“Digital transformation is going to be a key driver for Singapore’s future economy,” said Krupal Raval, CFO, Asia Pacific for Digital Realty. “The government has set aside S$2.4 billion over four years to transform the local economy by helping businesses go digital. As a result, we expect to see growing requirements for high-speed data connectivity from organisations throughout the city-state. Tapping into Colt’s strong coverage in Singapore, we are able to cater to these growing needs for our customers.”

“We are excited to support Digital Realty’s strategy of providing high-bandwidth solutions to its customers in Singapore and across the Asia Pacific region,” said Warren Aw, Director of Sales at Colt Technology Services. “With IP traffic in the region set to grow three-fold to 67.8 exabytes per month, we are pleased to add a world-class provider to our data center network.”

Colt’s wide range of connectivity services, including Colt Wave, Colt Ethernet Line, Ethernet Hub and Spoke, Ethernet VPN and AWS Direct Connect are now live and accessible to customers in Digital Realty’s Loyang (East) and Jurong (West) Data Centers in Singapore.
