TelecityGroup to Bring PCaaS to the UK By @BlueBox | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Our new European data center provides EU residency to the hosted version of Blue Box Cloud

TelecityGroup Helping Blue Box Bring PCaaS to the U.K.

By Hernan Alvarez

As we recently previewed (read more about our London PoP in Jesse's post), Blue Box is opening a new Data Center in London, but hadn't announced the provider. Today we're excited to partner with TelecityGroup, whom we've selected as our data center partner in London. We chose their Powergate location, which is one of the U.K.'s most advanced, flexible and energy efficient carrier-neutral data centres.

Why does that matter to you? Well, when customers choose Blue Box, they're trusting us with their most valuable assets, apps and data. As most folks are realizing, every company is a technology company, and data is one of the most valuable assets any organization has. Partnering with organizations that share our commitment to delivering exceptional customer experiences, competitive pricing and game-changing services matter to our customers.

And that is why we selected TelecityGroup. We were impressed with the TelecityGroup team for their stand-out performance in several areas:

  • Top-notch operational practices and facilities
  • 37 facilities around the European Union
  • Exceptional brand awareness and reputation throughout the EU
  • Customer-friendly terms and legal process (hands down the best MSA ever!)
  • Very competitive pricing and customer-friendly terms
  • Incredibly responsive and fast turnaround on everything

We know that partnering with the leading datacenter provider in Europe will help amplify our global reach while continuing to provide world class products and services for our customers.

I'd also like to give a shout out to Global Communication Networks. GCN brokered our engagement with TelecityGroup and truly added value, with great upfront research and artful negotiations. GCN even augmented our staff with critical project management services. Job well done.

With our move into London, we'll be in four locations: Seattle and Ashburn, Virginia, in the U.S.; Zurich and London in Europe. Our new European data center provides EU residency to the hosted version of Blue Box Cloud, satisfying a growing need among our customers for private cloud hosted in an EU member state.

Stay tuned for more news about our global expansion as we team with great partners like TelecityGroup to deliver Blue Box Cloud in more places and faster than ever.
