A day after launching VMware Enterprise Private Cloud, SingleHop, an infrastructure-as-a-service provider, announced plans to open a new data center in Amsterdam to meet increasing demand for high quality dedicated and cloud infrastructure from value-added resellers, hosting providers and SMBs around the world.
– Andy Pace, COO, SingleHop.
Housing 2,000 servers, the new facility is powered by SingleHop’s LEAP3 platform, and will expand it’s server capacity by 20 percent and widen its global footprint to reach high-growth markets in Europe and the surrounding areas. The new data center will also replicate the entire SingleHop technology platform found at its U.S. locations, as well as replicate the security features of U.S. data centers, with biometric physical access controls, individually locking cabinets and 24-hour security. All of the company’s current services will be offered through the new data center, including dedicated servers, cloud services, and managed services. All services will be covered by the SingleHop Customer Bill of Rights SLA, which guarantees service quality, customer service response times and network stability. Customers can choose to deploy SingleHop’s services at its data centers in Chicago, Phoenix or Amsterdam.
“This European data center solidifies our commitment to building a truly global network,” says Andy Pace, Chief Operating Officer at SingleHop. “With demand for hosted infrastructure and cloud computing growing quickly in Europe, this facility helps position us to satisfy this demand with our award-winning automated approach to infrastructure hosting that can have clients up and running in minutes.”
SingleHop has announced an early-bird pre-sale for customers with predictable infrastructure needs to reserve server capacity in the new Amsterdam data center ahead of its official opening. Pre-sale buyers will stand to get double the RAM and bandwidth allocations, plus 10 percent off base pricing for the first six months.
