EvoSwitch betreedt Amerikaanse markt vanwege vraag naar schaalbare colocatie-infrastructuur

AMSTERDAM, November 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

EvoSwitch opent carrier-neutraal datacenter in Virginia, VS

EvoSwitch, een toonaangevende leverancier van duurzame en innovatieve carrier-neutrale datacenter-diensten, kondigt vandaag aan dat het op 1 januari 2013 zijn WDC1 datacenter in de Verenigde Staten opent. De toetreding tot de Amerikaanse markt is het logische gevolg van de vraag naar schaalbare colocatie-infrastructuur in de VS. Bij de opening van het nieuwe datacenter is 27 procent van de beschikbare capaciteit in de eerste fase al verkocht.

EvoSwitch heeft een lange termijn-huurovereenkomst voor een datacenter-faciliteit in Manassas, Virginia getekend. Fase 1  begint met een initiële inzet van 3 megawatt (MW) kritisch vermogen met mogelijkheden tot uitbreiding. In de toekomstplannen is een groei naar 100.000 vierkante meter rackspace mogelijk.

Eric Boonstra, managing director van EvoSwitch: "We zijn erg enthousiast dat we één van de eerste Europese aanbieders van carrier-neutrale datacenter-diensten zijn die uitbreiden naar de Verenigde Staten en een veilig, schaalbaar datacenter lanceren in één van de regio's met de  hoogste connectiviteit ter wereld. Wij zijn ervan overtuigd dat we met onze innovatieve en duurzame carrier-neutrale colocatie een uitstekende oplossing zullen bieden voor de vele cloud-, digitale media- en telecommunicatiebedrijven die op zoek zijn naar carrier-neutrale datacenter-diensten. We kijken ernaar uit ons beproefde model met succes te herhalen in de Verenigde Staten; we nemen de connectiviteitsbehoefte van onze klanten hierbij als basis en voldoen aan hun behoeften door een grote groep carriers en andere netwerkserviceproviders aan te trekken rondom een sterke neutrale Internet Exchange partner, zoals AMS-IX dat voor ons is in Amsterdam."

"Hoewel dit onze eerste internationale uitbreiding is, zien we soortgelijke mogelijkheden voor verdere internationale groei," vervolgt Boonstra. "Veel van onze klanten coloceren hun bedrijfskritische applicaties op meerdere continenten. Met de opening van WDC1 creëren we nieuwe mogelijkheden om deze klanten beter van dienst te zijn en om nieuwe klanten aan te trekken."

Het nieuwe WDC1 EvoSwitch datacenter bevindt zich in Manassas, Virigina, in de buurt van Washington, DC, een regio die fungeert als één van de belangrijkste hubs voor internetverbindingen ter wereld. De datacenters in het gebied trekken een groot aantal cloudproviders, telecom- en digitale mediabedrijven aan voor colocatie en interconnectiediensten. Deze bedrijven vertegenwoordigen belangrijke segmenten voor EvoSwitch.

EvoSwitch heeft grondige engineering audits en testen uitgevoerd om een data​​center neer te zetten voldoet aan zijn hoge kwaliteits- en dienstverleningseisen. Het WDC1 datacenter in Virginia is LEED Gold-gecertificeerd en voldoet aan de richtlijnen van de DoD (Department of Defense) en de DCID (Director of Central Intelligence Directives). Boonstra: "In Europa lopen we voorop op het gebied van energie-efficiëntie. Onze AMS1-faciliteit in Amsterdam heeft dan ook een zeer lage Power Usage Effectiveness-score (PUE) van 1,2. WDC1 start met een PUE-score van 1,3. We streven vanzelfsprekend ook in de VS naar de best haalbare efficiëntie-ratings en vertrouwen erop dat zich steeds meer mogelijkheden zullen aandienen om vooruitgang te boeken op het moment dat wij ons daar vestigen en groeien."

The industry is heated with debates on whether adopting private or public cloud is the smartest, best, cheapest, you name it choice. But this debate is missing the mark. Businesses shouldn’t be discussing public vs. private, but rather how can they make the two work together to their greatest advantage. The ideal is to merge on-premise and off-premise into a seamless environment that can be managed as a single entity – a forward-looking stance that will eventually see major adoption. But as of late 2013, hybrid cloud was still “rare,” noted Gartner analyst Tom Bittman. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Marten Mickos, CEO of Eucalyptus Systems, will discuss how public clouds need on-premise satellites to win and, conversely, how on-premise environments cannot be really powerful unless they are connected to the public cloud. It’s not two competing worlds; it’s two dimensions of the same world.
