Santander Consumer USA announced Wednesday that it's chosen ViaWest's colocation services.

A subsidiary of Banco Santander and headquartered in Dallas, Santander Consumer USA said it's using ViaWest for its secure, cloud-computing operations that will eventually store Santander data.

Santander Consumer USA offers finance programs through indirect, direct and third-party origination platforms, according to a press release.

"ViaWest impressed us with the deep and extensive knowledge of its team," said Glenn Harper, Santander Consumer USA's chief technology officer, in that press release. "From the beginning, we knew we were dealing with an incredibly knowledgeable team who knew data centers, how to solve problems and, importantly, how to serve customers. We appreciate ViaWest's customer-first mentality and look forward to working together closely."
