Earlier this month, Extreme Networks UK&I launched a new regional data centre (RDC) in London. This expansion brings Extreme's highly secure cloud management platform (ExtremeCloud™ IQ) closer to its UK customers, resulting in faster data transmissions and easy access to cloud applications and services. Adoption of ExtremeCloud IQ has grown by 55% over the last year and is trusted to manage more than 1.6 million network devices daily.
Extreme’s global footprint now comprises a total of 17 RDCs, enabling customers that are connected to them to securely process more than 13 petabytes of data per day.
The new data centre meets the same ISO security standards as all other ExtremeCloud IQ global presences, which means that customers can securely host data within their region and be fully compliant with local data protection laws and regulations.
Commenting on the announcement, John Morrison, SVP of International Markets for Extreme Networks had this to say:
“The UK has long been known as a hub of technological innovation. As the fastest-growing cloud-managed networking provider, we therefore feel a great pride and responsibility to offer a regional data centre location in London. This new location is helping us to further support cloud adoption for our ExtremeCloud IQ subscribers in region, delivering industry-leading information security and data protection with in-country data residency to stay compliant and advance their business.”
As the highest accredited Black Diamond Partner in the UK, Datrix is delighted to see this level of commitment from Extreme Networks. In light of the changing cybersecurity landscape across the UK, data sovereignty has become a key consideration, especially amongst our public sector customers.
The proximity of an ISO accredited London data centre not only provides performance improvements but addresses issues of security and compliance.
