A brief review
In 2004, Martin Verges founded Digitallabs Network GmbH. The company successfully offers hosting and housing products and thus acquires a solid customer base.
In order to keep up with the ever-increasing administrative workload and also to expand the product range accordingly, the company changed its name to First Colo GmbH at the end of 2007.
In early 2011, the firstcolo data centre is opened in the Accent Office Center. By 2016, First Colo GmbH merged with Accelerated IT Services & Consulting GmbH under the parent company diva-e (www.diva-e.com).
Since then, firstcolo has been positioned as a brand of diva-e Datacenters GmbH with two data centres in Frankfurt am Main (Accent Office Center and Werkhaus) - and this marks a new entrepreneurial era for us.
