The company which started its operations in Interoute’s Data Centre in Madrid launches ambitious European expansion plan
Madrid, 18 May 2016 – Safe Computing, a Spanish cloud computing and virtualisation solutions provider, has selected the London Data Centre of Interoute, owner-operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe's largest networks, as the launch pad for its international expansion plan in Europe.
Safe Computing started operating as a provider of specialised IT support for Andalusian SMEs with particular focus on the implementation of on-premise virtualised environments. The company is now launching an ambitious growth and evolution programme aimed at setting up a professional cloud-based environment and continuing to offer the same virtualisation services, but as an outsourced activity.
The need to broaden its capacity and nationwide footprint led the company to choose Interoute’s Distributed Data Centre in Madrid in 2014. Now, for its international expansion project, Safe Computing has selected Interoute’s Data Centre in London, from which the company will operate on a worldwide basis, with a direct link to the Madrid Data Centre through Interoute’s pan European fibre network. The capacity increase required by Safe Computing has also prompted the company to plan another new expansion step into Interoute’s Data Centre in Berlin, slated to take place later this year.
Safe Computing provides its customers with virtual and secure ICT infrastructure. Using Interoute’s Data Centres in Madrid and London, as well as Berlin in future, the company can deliver more added-value services, with improved security, higher redundancy and centralised management, bringing substantial cost savings with no quality of service compromise.
Jorge Casto, Safe Computing’s COO, said: “After our excellent experience with Interoute in its Madrid Data Centre, when making our international expansion plans, we decided to add the Interoute London Data Centre and will extend our infrastructure to Interoute’s Berlin data centre later in 2016, to successfully manage our growth.”
Lee Myall, Senior Vice President for Commercial Operations and Cloud Solutions, at Interoute, said: “We are happy to be able to contribute to Safe Computing’s international expansion through our global cloud services platform and our optical fibre network and data centres, ensuring the highest security and reliability standards for their customers.”
Safe Computing plans to relocate its headquarters to Oxford, UK, and manage its international operations in Europe from there.
