The opening of the new facility marks an increased investment to Continuum's partners across Europe. Having a data centre available in London will allow IT service providers in the region to use Continuity247 to ensure client data is securely backed up, protected and accessible to clients.
John Mandel, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Continuum, had this to say about the announcement.
“Extending our local presence in and enhancing our support of international markets is an ongoing commitment for Continuum. With this new data centre, 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.”
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 centre has built-in 2N redundancy to ensure that data is always available.
Paul Balkwell, European Sales Director at Continuum, added his thoughts on the importance of the facility.
“Since opening our UK office in 2014, Continuum has made a commitment to supporting international markets. This new data centre helps us get closer to delivering profitable, fully managed backup and disaster recovery to our partners in the UK and Europe.”
