“As Options continues to scale globally, one of our primary aims is to bring our business, infrastructure markup, and technology even closer to clients. In the last 6 months we have successfully deployed new colocation venues in Singapore and Korea. Our New Zealand presence will ensure the next phase of dedicated colocation expansion in Sydney (ASX and SY2) will continue with similar pace and agility. Basing our operations in Auckland will enable us to better serve our clients, continue our overall growth trajectory and develop our strategic commitment to the APAC region.”
