Cyxtera Continues Global Expansion with New Datacentre Capacity in Europe
Cyxtera Technologies, today announced at CyxteraCon, its annual user conference, the launch of a new datacentre in Frankfurt and expanded presence in London to satisfy growing customer demand for the company’s secure colocation and infrastructure solutions. The latest deployments, along with a planned expansion in Amsterdam later this year, extends Cyxtera’s presence in key European markets while providing customers with the high-caliber expertise and security required in today’s changing General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) landscape.
To address the growing demand for Cyxtera’s datacentre services in the UK, the company’s expansion in London – the datacentre hub of the EMEA region – will see an additional 30,000 square feet commissioned in the company’s Slough datacentre campus.
“Increasing our presence in London and Frankfurt is key to meeting the growing demand we are seeing from industries including the finance, manufacturing and technology sectors,” said Alex Pearson, Senior Vice President for International Sales at Cyxtera. “Europe is a key region for Cyxtera and our customers, so this expansion is a natural progression.”
An example of customer demand in Europe is evidenced by Scan, a multi award winning GPU solution provider. Scan is working with Cyxtera to offer an accredited NVIDIA Cloud Service Provider solution in the UK and Europe. “We were searching for a datacentre provider that could offer the ideal environment to support data intensive workloads such as AI & Deep Learning, GPU-accelerated Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and super-fast storage,” said Elan Raja, CEO of Scan. “We selected Cyxtera’s London datacentre for their ability to meet both Scan’s and our customer’s strict infrastructure and security requirements and support our rapid growth.”
