AT&T Adds Digital Realty to Boost Colocation Services

DALLAS -- AT&T and Digital Realty are broadening AT&T's colocation service offerings by expanding their alliance, enabling AT&T to incorporate Digital Realty colocation capacity directly into its solutions. The alliance will 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.

AT&T and Digital Realty will work together to deliver colocation services. The two companies will also extend AT&T NetBond, AT&T's leading cloud connectivity service, to key Digital Realty data centers. This will allow AT&T to extend the reach of AT&T NetBond to existing and new cloud service providers. The deal adds Digital Realty to the robust AT&T NetBond ecosystem. 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.

During 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.
