Goodbye, AT&T data centres

Hardware
A white Range Rover Evoque

I saw this fly by my inbox this morning:

AT&T no longer operates the colocation services. Evoque is now responsible for the operations at the data center. Evoque will deliver the services listed below to the transferred colocation customers:

  • Raised floor, space, cages, racks, and similar components.
  • HVAC and other environmental controls
  • Power
  • Remote Hands
  • Cross-Connects
  • Data Center access control and physical security

Pictured above is a Range Rover Evoque by M 93 on Wikimedia Commons, that presumably isn’t what AT&T sold to, hence its inclusion here is entirely pointless.

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.

You can leave me a comment by contacting me, and I might publish your thoughts. Please read the FAQs first though.

If you found this post helpful or entertaining, you can shout me a coffee or buy some silly merch. Thanks!
