Cloud Team Alliance expands European footprint

26 March 2014 | Sophie Donoghue

Cloud Team Alliance – a partnership of European companies that operate cloud services – has expanded its membership with the signing of KPN and Portugal Telecom.

The additional membership allows the alliance to extend its geographic coverage to the Netherlands and Portugal respectively.

Formed in 2013 by Belgacom and Numergy, the aim of the allegiance is to enable companies to internationalise their cloud coverage, allowing European companies to compete against American and Asian players.

The alliance enables members to offer customers a cloud infrastructure localised in the countries of their operations.

This allows companies to meet the needs of their international customers, especially regarding European and local compliance, and security.
