QTS Realty Trust announced on Tuesday that it has completed the integration of Carpathia Hosting operations and that all of its data center, managed hosting, and cloud services are offered under the QTS name.
QTS acquired Carpathia Hosting in June 2015 for $326 million to grow its geographic footprint to international markets and enhance its portfolio with government cloud services. The completion of the integration of Carpathia gives QTS 24 data centers on three continents.
“With the substantial completion of the integration process, our over 700 employees have created a bigger, better, stronger QTS,” QTS CEO Chad Williams said in a statement. “QTS is uniquely poised to deliver world-class infrastructure with value added technology services to our over 1,000 customers.”
QTS chief product officer Peter Weber led the integration process, according to a report by REIT.com.
According to QTS, the company merged Carpathia’s “resources and cultures into its existing operational structure, identifying efficiencies and streamlining duplication.” The company is now well-positioned to serve enterprise and government clients internationally, according to the statement. In an interview with REIT.com, Williams said that more than 40 percent of QTS’s revenue comes from customers buying more than one of its products.
“Our current customers will continue to benefit from our expanded product and services offerings, while receiving the same premium customer experience they have come to expect from QTS and the former Carpathia,” Williams said. “We look forward to building on our legacy of success and positioning QTS to meet the ever changing and complex IT needs of businesses today and tomorrow.”
