Continuum Expands International Offerings With New Data Center in London
Tuesday, September 6, 2016
Continuum has extended its international offering with a new data center in London, United Kingdom. The opening of the facility marks an increased investment for the company's managed IT services provider partners across Europe and will give Continuum's MSP partners in the region the ability to use Continuity247 to ensure client data is securely backed up, protected and accessible to its clients.
"Extending our local presence in and enhancing our support of international markets is an ongoing commitment for Continuum," said John Mandel, senior vice president of engineering, Continuum. "With this new data center, we are taking a significant step forward in our promise to enhance our support for our partners in the United Kingdom and Europe by bringing Continuity247 to them."
Continuum has been utilizing cloud storage via two redundant IBM cloud data centers in the United States to ensure security, reliability and availability of MSP customer data since the launch of Continuity247 in 2015. Georgia-based IT services provider, Sophicity, BSS Consulting in Indiana, California-based WAMS Inc., as well as eProsper Inc. in Toronto, have all recently announced using Continuity247 and the public cloud storage capabilities provided by the company's U.S.-based data centers.
The new facility in London will allow Continuum to extend the benefits of its fully managed BDR offering outside of North America for the first time. The London data center has built-in 2N redundancy to ensure that data is always available.
