Advanced Data Centres is looking for new wholesalers and IT service providers to partner with. The Northland-based data centre company is looking to expand its business in the country. The company decided not to go ahead with a proposed merger with another data centre company so they could focus on texisting customers and work with partners to find new clients. “We are a boutique, specialised company that really wanted to concentrate on delivering a high quality service to our current clients throughout the country rather than follow a large corporate model. There were indications that the quality of the service for existing, valued clients may have been compromised under the new merger,” says ADC’s general manager, Steve Shepherd, about the proposed deal. The merger would have seen the company become part of a larger IT services company with rapid plans to build a network of data centres throughout the country, according to Shepherd, ADC provides shared hosting environments, managed hosting platforms and dedicated hosting. “We partner with local IT companies who deal directly with clients and facilitate their needs. Often with the dedicated hosting environments, we deal directly with the corporate’s or council’s own IT department,” says Shepherd.
