Latisys Expanding into Europe with London Data Center

By Rory Lidstone

About a week after winning the 2013 Xcel Energy Recommissioning Achievement Award for its implementation of airflow improvement methodology at its Denver data center, Latisys has announced European expansion plans. The company’s decision to deploy its CESI platform in a high density, Tier III data center in London is said to be in response to increasing U.S. and international demand for hybrid cloud hosting solutions.

In particular, Latisys is looking to better serve emerging enterprise customer needs, including those of a large multinational company that has begun working on a global platform consolidation initiative. For all potential clients, Latisys will immediately start offering a hybrid mix of enterprise-grade private and multi-tenant cloud offerings — including compute, networking, storage, backup and security — delivered with self-service capabilities and cloud bursting.

Latisys’ hybrid cloud hosting is best suited to complex, mission critical workloads and requirements supporting a wide range of industries with solutions tailored to multinational or domestic clients’ unique requirements and delivered via single-site or multisite configurations.

"Expanding from our national platform in the US to new international markets represents a natural evolution for Latisys, and we look forward to demonstrating the business benefits of our unified platform to European and U.S. multinationals alike," said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys, in a statement. "By integrating best-in-breed technology with process automation, operational best practices and a company-wide culture to serve as an extension of each customer's IT team, we've always had a model that can scale — for customers and investors — and now internationally."

Over the past year, Latisys has experienced significant growth and demand for its high performance, scalable and high-touch solutions. As a result, the company surpassed $100 million in run rate revenue. Key areas of growth that contributed to this include an increase in enterprise managed hosting and cloud sales, which rose 65 percent from 2012 to 2013, and 35 percent growth in multisite deployments in the same period.
