AT&T and Digital Realty Trust have announced they are broadening AT&T’s colocation service offerings by expanding their alliance. The move will enable AT&T to incorporate Digital Realty colocation capacity directly into its solutions and will also span Digital Realty’s global portfolio of data centers, enhancing AT&T’s existing product offerings of network and managed services. This complements AT&T’s existing Colocation Services network of 38 locations in 16 countries.
The two companies will work together to deliver colocation services as well as extend AT&T NetBond®, AT&T’s leading cloud connectivity service, to key Digital Realty data centers. The move will enable AT&T to extend the reach of AT&T NetBond to existing and new cloud service providers. Digital Realty’s data center portfolio is built on a foundation of unrivaled real estate acumen and the company brings this expertise and its ecosystem of network-rich data centers to this alliance.
In 2016, customers will be able to connect to the growing suite of AT&T NetBond cloud service providers from its locations within a Digital Realty data center, bringing more options for cloud connectivity. By utilizing AT&T NetBond for cloud connectivity, customers can improve end-to-end reliability and network security.
