Hivelocity, a leading global provider of IaaS, announced today the availability of its bare-metal edge compute services in Frankfurt, Germany. Frankfurt stands first among several new European and APAC locations that Hivelocity will be launching in the coming months as it continues to extend the reach of its edge compute platform.
Frankfurt lists in New York City, Dallas, Tampa, Los Angeles, Miami, Seattle and Atlanta markets where Hivelocity offers its suite of infrastructure services. Hivelocity’s platform lets users instantly deploy hundreds of Linux and Windows dedicated servers in all of these 8 global markets. Once the bare-metal is deployed, users can monitor server health and resource usage data, create the data recovery points, perform OS reloads, interact with technical support team and much more. Each server has the option of being self-managed or managed with the latter including things such as proactive monitoring and security patches. Hivelocity’s expansion plans include adding edge compute to new markets like London, Singapore, Paris, Sydney, Amsterdam and Sao Paulo in the next three months.
“With customers hailing from over 130 countries, Hivelocity has long served a global market. As our customers’ businesses have grown and matured, so have their needs to optimize and scale the performance of their applications all over the world. By enabling our customers to deploy their compute and storage resources wherever in the world their end users are best served, we are providing them with a much better opportunity to maximize the end user experience and their own bottom line,” says Hivelocity CTO Ben Linton.
With businesses increasingly recognizing the benefits of having their compute nodes at the edge, there has been a recent growth in upstart edge providers. Hivelocity believes its seventeen years of IaaS experience and obsessive focus on customer support gives it a boost on competitors.
“Our mantra has always been to be the best service provider our customers have ever worked with. We maintain a Net Promoter Score of 74+ which is a testament to the level of satisfaction our customers feel, and frankly heads and shoulders above our competitors. If a business needs to deploy 1000 servers or just 10 servers around the globe, you can guarantee they are going to need some help and technical support along the way. Most of our competitors are new to the arena and all their capital is invested in developers and hardware. We spend a lot of money on developers and hardware too, but we also employ nearly 100 technicians and engineers who work inside our data centers 24/7, providing the most exceptional technical support in the industry. Our support solutions involve experts with years of experience working with you in real time, their solution is to have you fix it yourself or reload the OS,” says Hivelocity COO Steve Eschweiler.
