Dimension Data has added four new global Cloud datacentres to help address the demand for enterprise-class Cloud services.
Services at its Ashburn (Virginia, USA) Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) facility are currently available, and will be joined by Melbourne (Australia) in December, and both London (UK) and Sao Paulo (Brazil) in January next year. This brings the number of MCP facilities to 11.
DiData Cloud business unit CEO, Steve Nola, said the addition of these four key MCP locations adds capacity to the US, Australia and Europe, where the client base is growing rapidly and required multiple Cloud datacentres to support business continuity, backup and replication within the region.
Other locations include: San Jose, California, US; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Sydney, Australia; Johannesburg, South Africa; Tokyo, Japan and Hong Kong, China.
MCPs host the company’s public Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and managed hosting services. It provides users in that region with low-latency access to secure, enterprise-class public, private and hosted private Cloud services.
