Japan’s leading Internet Exchange, JPNAP, operated by INTERNET MULTIFEED will extend their peering fabric into Colt DCS’ Tokyo Shiohama data centre. The partnership is testament to Colt DCS’ commitment to expand its portfolio. It will enable their customers to directly connect to one of Asia’s leading Internet Exchanges and exchange IP traffic, and “peer,” with JPNAP’s customers, including Internet Service Providers (ISPs), CATV carriers, content and cloud providers.
Network traffic has been growing explosively, including huge amounts of traffic from “hyper giants” cloud service providers, social media, major content providers and CDN operators. As this significant growth is expected to continue, connectivity is becoming even more of a deciding factor for customers when selecting a data centre.
Colt DCS has invested heavily in its facilities with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region, including the very recent opening of its fifth data centre in Japan in order to support growing demand. In partnership with INTERNET MULTIFEED, Colt DCS will provide customers with high-speed, high-quality connectivity that supports growing data traffic.
“Our partnership with Colt DCS is an important building block for us to further expand our business,” said Katsuyasu Toyama, Representative Director, COO at INTERNET MULTIFEED. “Reliable, high-speed global connectivity will provide our customers with the best Internet environment.”
"We are honored to contribute to further growth of the Internet society in partnership with INTERNET MULTIFEED, which has supported the Internet in Japan and Asia from its earliest days. Colt DCS will continue to actively invest and expand its connectivity portfolio in the Asia Pacific region in line with the expectations and demands of our customers."
The partnership aims to promote more job opportunities for women in technology
London, 30 April 2018 – Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) today announces its pledge to support Tech She Can, an industry charter launched to encourage inclusivity and increase the number of women working in the technology industry.
The partnership aims to challenge stereotypes in the technology industry and encourage more women to get involved in the sector. Demand for data centre capacity is growing, and with this comes the need for talented individuals of equal gender to join the field.
According to research conducted by PwC into Women in Tech, over a quarter of female students have been put off a career in technology as it is too male-dominated, with only 3 per cent of female respondents saying it’s their first choice. This is evident in the fact that 23 per cent of STEM roles are held by women, and scantly 15 per cent of STEM management roles are occupied by women.
Colt DCS joins forces with other leading industry organisations on the Tech She Can Charter to inspire more women to get involved in technology careers. It will also showcase female mentors in the industry to encourage empowerment amongst peers, as well as demonstrate the wide range of future career possibilities for young women.
