The alignment between the business unit and parent company represents the combined value that CenturyLink delivers to businesses through its broad set of colocation, managed services, cloud and network offerings.
"We are pleased to become CenturyLink Technology Solutions, as aligning our brand with CenturyLink demonstrates the deeper ties to the broad portfolio of IT solutions that we collectively deliver for businesses," said Jeff Von Deylen, president of CenturyLink Technology Solutions. "While we are extremely proud of our nearly 20-year legacy operating as Savvis within the industry, we value CenturyLink's extensive market leadership and look forward to operating under one brand to continue helping businesses become more agile, secure and sustainable with integrated solutions that deliver bottom-line results."
CenturyLink Technology Solutions will remain the distinct data hosting operating segment within CenturyLink. Von Deylen added, "Though our name is changing, our customers will continue to be served by the same account teams providing the same excellent levels of service and experience that enterprises have come to expect from us."
Centurylink acquired Savvis in 2011.
