Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 3 May 2018 – After winning the ‘Best Energy Solution’ award at the Datacloud Europe Awards last year (organized by BroadGroup), EvoSwitch has been shortlisted again this year. Now, the Datacloud Europe Award jury has shortlisted EvoSwitch into three Datacloud Award categories. The award categories honor EvoSwitch for its innovation efforts when it comes to implementing a continual sustainability and operational excellence optimization model for its data centers. The Datacloud Award expert jurors also praised EvoSwitch for maintaining high customer satisfaction levels year-over-year, and for the value added data center services being deployed.
When launching its Amsterdam colocation data center in 2007, its first facility at the time, EvoSwitch was one of the early carrier-neutral data center operators in Europe with ‘green’ operations. The colocation company – now offering large-scale colocation facilities located in Europe and the U.S. – managed to do so by deploying innovative cooling systems amongst other energy-efficiency enhancing technologies and the use of renewables.
During the last decade, EvoSwitch’s engineering teams have continually made optimizations to their Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) figures, resulting in an ultra-low day-to-day PUE value for its large-scale colocation data centers ranging from 1.1 to 1.15 currently. The Datacloud Europe Award jury has shortlisted EvoSwitch, again, now for its unwavering commitment to the highest standards of sustainable data center operations and for its culture of continuous operational optimization.
“We sincerely appreciate the triple Datacloud Award nomination, but the real proof of our successes and market leadership can be found in our customer satisfaction rates,” said Eric Boonstra, CEO of EvoSwitch. “A Net Promoter Score metric above 50 is regarded as excellent while we manage to achieve significantly higher figures year after year. Sustainability is a small though valuable component of a wide range of qualities we’re offering, which also includes a 99,999% uptime; compliance with a full range of third-party standards including ISO 27001:2013, PCI-DSS, SOC1 Type II, and ISO 14001:2004; the value-add services we create such as EvoSwitch OpenCloud, to open up customer ecosystems; and much more. We’re happy to see that these outstanding achievements have gained public recognition now that EvoSwitch has been shortlisted Datacloud for their ‘Excellence in Data Centre Service Award with Local Impact’ award category.”
