DAILYHOSTNEWS, November 28, 2011 – Swiss internet service providers, EveryWare and Artmotion have signed a deal for close cooperation. To form the partnership, EveryWare has signed an agreement to purchase a 25 percent stake in Artmotion, laying a foundation of steady growth for both companies in Switzerland and internationally. Both companies will however, remain autonomous.
“We have seen a market grow for co-locating secure IT data offshore in Swiss Datacenters. The growth came from international markets. Thanks to the partnership with EveryWare we can look forward to further growth, but ultimately it is our customers who will benefit the most from this partnership.” said Artmotion CEO, Mateo Meier.
While ISP EveryWare has extensive experience managing data centers, Artmotion‘s strengths lie with Swiss based Dedicated Server offerings targeting the international markets. In the wake of the new partnership, Artmotion will profit from the managed services know-how of its new partner and gain access to EveryWare’s high availability data centers in Zurich, Switzerland with 1,500 m2 of effective surface.
Artmotion has grown 40 percent year on year since 2009, needing more and more space for its customers. It has been forecasted that by Q1 2012 the current data center will reach its capacity limits. To avoid this, Artmotion will migrate all of its customers to EveryWare’s data centers by the end of this year. These modern data centers are also suitable for customers certified by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). In order to leverage the resulting synergies, Artmotion and EveryWare will adjust and optimize their processes
The major part of Artmotion’s revenue comes from companies from Europe and Middle East, predominantly from financial trading companies and enterprises operating in oil, gas, metal, minerals and other natural resources.
