CenturyLink has sold its data centres and associated colocation business to a consortium led by BC Partners and Medina Capital Advisors. This move led to the creation of a bold, new company, Cyxtera Technologies, comprised of world-class talent and technology. CenturyLink will continue to work closely with Cyxtera and the same strong team that has operated the data centres successfully for years and who will continue to deliver world-class customer service and Operational Excellence for all colocation customers.
