Nation’s only integrated data center and cloud provider positioned for continued growth

Overland Park, Kan. (January 12, 2016)QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), announced that it has substantially completed the integration of Carpathia Hosting operations and that all data center, managed hosting and cloud services are now provided by a single company under the QTS name. The completion of this process positions QTS as a leading hybrid technology provider with 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,” said Chad Williams, Chief Executive Officer – QTS. “QTS is uniquely poised to deliver world-class infrastructure with value added technology services to our over 1,000 customers.”

The company will continue serving enterprise and government customers – but now on an international basis.

“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 continued. “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.”
