Telehouse - Company Strategy and Prospects
Telehouse is a carrier-neutral provider of colocation and managed data center services, operating a network of 42 data centers in 24 cities in 13 countries in Asia,Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and North America. Expansions in existing markets that are scheduled to open in 2015 and 2016 will take the company's total footprint to 371,000m2 in 45 data centers. The company hosts more than 500 carriers, internet service providers (ISPs) and application service providers (ASPs), and has some 2,000 customers worldwide. Telehouse is atypical in that it is a carrier-neutral data center operator that is owned by a global carrier, Japan's KDDI. It was one of the world's first colocation providers, opening its first facility in 1989, and remains one of the largest in terms of geographic footprint. Neither Telehouse nor KDDI provide financial or operational data about the company, although it is included in KDDI's financial statements for its Global Services Division. It is therefore impossible to analyze Telehouse's standalone performance or compare it to the competition.
