Interoute to launch second VDC in Germany

06 November 2014 |

Interoute has revealed that it will be launching a second virtual data centre (VDC) zone in Germany on December 1 2014.

The VDC will be located in Frankfurt am Main and follows the launch of its Berlin facility in 2012.

The second German VDC is designed to meet growing customer demand for secure enterprise grade cloud computing in the country, with complete data control and low latency.

“Expanding the applications universe that can be moved to the cloud is central to Interoute’s approach. Critical from a German perspective is data control and location,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO at Interoute.

“Our dual-zone approach and free network enables in-country resilience coupled with low latency, minimising code rewrites.”

Interoute VDC allows customers to provision and control compute, storage and network infrastructure on demand, and the Frankfurt facility will be the 12th on the Interoute cloud computing platform.

The Frankfurt VDC will also be combined with Interoute’s private and public networking capability, which will enable customers to create virtual cloud environments.

In this year alone, Interoute has launched VDC zones in Madrid, Hong Kong, New York and in two locations in the UK.
