AtlasEdge, a leading pan-European edge data centre provider, has appointed Tesh Durvasula as its new CEO.

As a digital infrastructure and data centre veteran, Tesh brings with him more than 25 years of experience across development, finance, sales, marketing, and real estate. He will succeed current AtlasEdge CEO, Giuliano Di Vitantonio, who will transition to the role of Board Chairman.

With his commitment to the data centre industry, Tesh is well-positioned to harness his extensive experience to drive company growth at AtlasEdge.

“Tesh’s experience, credibility, and calibre make him ideally placed to drive the business forward in the years to come,” Giuliano comments.

Capitalising on industry growth

Tesh has served in a broad range of leadership and value creation roles throughout his career, having most recently served as the CEO of Africa Data Centres. Prior to this, he spent a decade at leading data centre company CyrusOne, where he rose to become company President and CEO.

His work has seen him successfully lead organisations through rapid periods of growth and transformations. As a result, he has had a heavy hand in developing highly skilled and successful teams within leading organisations.

Now with AtlasEdge, Tesh will work closely with Giuliano Di Vitantonio and new Executive Director Josh Joshi to develop the company through its next phase of growth.

“The rising tide of customer demand makes this a prime time to invest in edge data centre markets, and AtlasEdge is perfectly positioned to continue capturing this demand and become the continent’s leading platform,” Tesh highlights. “I can’t wait to get started and look forward to working closely with our shareholders, DigitalBridge and Liberty Global, building on the extraordinary momentum the industry has seen over the last several years.” 

AtlasEdge: Powering edge data centres

Tesh takes the helm at AtlasEdge during a time of intense customer demand within the data centre industry. In particular, the desire for edge data centres is rising at a rapid rate, as they have emerged as a ‘game-changer’ in the field of data processing. This also transforms how data is handled and used moving forward.

Edge data centres refer to a smaller data centre that is located close to the edge of a network.

AtlasEdge Data Centres has developed a suite of industry leading products and services across Europe to meet both present and future customer requirements

With this in mind, AtlasEdge is aiming to capitalise on increasing demands and become a leading edge data centre platform across Europe. The company has developed a suite of industry-leading products and services across Europe to meet both present and future customer needs.

The company was formed in 2021 as a joint venture between Liberty Global and DigitalBridge.

“AtlasEdge has rapidly established itself as a key operator, capturing customer demand across Europe, and that is in no small part due to the work of Giuliano and the excellent team we have assembled,” states Josh Joshi, Executive Director, AtlasEdge. “We are now entering an important new phase under the seasoned leadership of Tesh Durvasula, who I know will continue our excellent progress and growth trajectory as AtlasEdge becomes the preeminent name in European edge infrastructure.”
