Resilient operations and access to Tier-1 service providers are key factors in Cineteck’s choice
Paris, France, April 28, 2010 - Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EQIX, news, filings), a provider of global data center services, has today announced that Cineteck France, a specialist in website hosting for enterprises and individuals, has chosen to host its Web and application servers in a private cage at Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX®) data center (PA2) located in Saint-Denis, in the suburbs of Paris, France. By locating business-critical infrastructure at the PA2 data center, Cineteck France can now directly interconnect with many of France’s leading telecom and service providers, enabling the hosting specialist to sign Internet access and private network contracts at highly competitive rates. Cineteck France has also chosen Equinix due to its aggressive expansion program, which means it is ideally placed to match Cineteck France’s 2010 plans to grow its own hosting operations.
Based in Rodez, France, Cineteck France delivers dedicated and shared hosting solutions to SMEs, Web agencies and individuals. The company also offers platforms to host collaborative applications such as ERP, groupware and CRM solutions. In order to safeguard its equipment as well as provide high quality and highly available services to its customers, Cineteck France decided to entrust its infrastructure to Equinix, benefiting from remote monitoring and administration, and, at the same time, capitalizing on Equinix’s established community of network providers.
“At Cineteck France, we are focused on ensuring that our customers are satisfied and our commitments honoured,” explains Jean-Luc Montjaux, general manager, Cineteck France. “We selected Equinix for its top-quality operations in terms of design, energy savings, redundant architecture, and the presence of all the major service providers as customers. The grouping of Tier-1 carriers in a single data center is a definite advantage. This helped us negotiate optimum rates for our Internet access and private network by benchmarking suppliers, and allowed us to choose the connectivity solution that best met our requirements, in this case, fiber optic. Our collaboration with Equinix has proven very satisfactory to date.”
Equinix’s IBX data centers offer premier levels of physical security, power availability and savings, as well as infrastructure flexibility. All European data centers are ISO 9001/2008 certified, a quality standard known globally and supported by the International Standards Organization.
