A brief review
Jerome Evans founded FSHost GbR in 2004. The company successfully offered hosting and game server products and thus acquired a large customer base. In 2007, Evans founded First Colo GmbH in order to cope with the ever-increasing administrative workload and to expand the product range accordingly. At the beginning of 2011, the firstcolo data centre was opened in the Accent Office Center. In 2017, First Colo GmbH acquired Accelerated IT Services & Consultig GmbH under the parent company diva-e (www.diva-e.com). firstcolo operated as a brand of diva-e Datacenters GmbH with two data centres in Frankfurt am Main (Accent Office Center and Werkhaus). Towards the end of 2022, the infrastructure investor Cube Infrastructure Managers ("Cube") took over diva-e datacenters GmbH and since then firstcolo has been operating as its own brand again - the story of success continues.
