. February 17, 2013

ScoLocate, Scotland’s leading independent colocation provider, has been acquired by managed cloud, hosting and connectivity expert, Pulsant. The move boosts Pulsant’s operational scale and presence in Scotland and is part of a continued strategic growth programme to become one of the UK’s leading data centre services providers.

All of ScoLocate’s existing 25 staff will join Pulsant’s 150-strong team of highly-skilled data centre services personnel, further enhancing the delivery of its managed hosting, cloud infrastructure, managed network and colocation services.

ScoLocate’s data centre in Edinburgh provides 75,000 sq ft of space and hosts over 30 telecommunication carriers, making it one of the most connected commercially available data centres outside the M25.

The acquisition represents a significant step in the continued development of Pulsant. The combined business will have 240,000 sq ft of data centre space, a total rack capacity in excess of 4,000, and will service over 3,000 public and private sector clients directly, and many thousands more indirectly.
