CenturyLink and Savvis today completed their previously announced merger.

"The combination of CenturyLink’s hosting and network assets with Savvis’ proven solutions in colocation, managed hosting and cloud services substantially enhances CenturyLink’s capabilities and immediately provides the company with a solid platform for future growth," said Glen Post, CEO and president of CenturyLink, in a statement. "The transaction helps us meet the accelerating demand for cloud-based services through a robust hosting presence, including 48 data centers in North America, Europe and Asia."

Later this year, CenturyLink plans to integrate its hosting business with Savvis’ managed hosting and cloud services to focus on increasing CenturyLink’s market share in these services. The integrated hosting business, which will operate under the Savvis brand for the foreseeable future, will be based in St. Louis and led primarily by key members of the Savvis leadership team, including CEO Jim Ousley.
