Choice highlights trends for sustainable and local cloud solutions
Amsterdam, 8 May, 2014 – EvoSwitch, a leading provider of sustainable and innovative carrier-neutral data center services, today announced that Detron, a leading Dutch IT and telecom system integrator has chosen EvoSwitch for the expansion of its data center footprint.
EvoSwitch provides Detron with a secure and scalable data center facility. Detron expects to capitalize on the migration to the cloud which many companies are currently undergoing and is focusing on building private, national clouds.
Detron will use its new data center facility at EvoSwitch to provide remote back up services and secure twin data center solutions for its clients, all of which are based in The Netherlands. Detron is a Dutch ICT company with a strong focus on their home market.
Emile Schouwstra, Data Center Services Director at Detron: “Our customers are Dutch medium and large sized businesses. These companies are replacing large parts of their in-home IT infrastructure to a cloud environment, but with specific security and privacy demands . For example, clients often ask specific guarantees and that their data is stored in The Netherlands. Apart from these requirements, sustainability also plays a decisive role who to work with. Our customers choose Detron because of our commitment to sustainability. With EvoSwitch we are strengthening this proposition.”
Eric Boonstra, EvoSwitch Managing Director concurs. “Security has always been an important aspect of our business, and although we are expanding globally, each data center we operate stands on its own and is in compliance with local laws on data security and privacy. Of course, we are very pleased that Detron has chosen EvoSwitch also for our sustainability strategy. Like Detron, we firmly believe that there is a demand for renewable energy and a green approach to running IT infrastructure, proven by our customers and enquiries for sustainable colocation space.”
