SingleHop Kicks Off Global Expansion With New Data Center In Amsterdam

CHICAGO and AMSTERDAM, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SingleHop, a global leader in providing highly automated cloud computing and infrastructure-as-a-service, today announced plans to open a new data center in Amsterdam. The facility will help SingleHop meet growing demand for high quality dedicated and cloud infrastructure from value-added resellers, hosting providers and SMBs around the world.

The new 2,000-server facility expands SingleHop's server capacity by approximately 20 percent and widens its global footprint to reach high-growth markets in Europe and the surrounding areas. "This European data center solidifies our commitment to building a truly global network," says Andy Pace, Chief Operating Officer at SingleHop. "With demand for hosted infrastructure and cloud computing growing quickly in Europe, this facility helps position us to satisfy this demand with our award-winning automated approach to infrastructure hosting that can have clients up and running in minutes."

According to Gartner, $677 billion will be spent on cloud services worldwide over the next three years, with Western Europe predicted to be the second-largest region, accounting for nearly a quarter of all spending from 2013 to 2016. Eastern Europe, Asia/Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa as are also expected to post the highest growth rates during this period.

For SingleHop, Amsterdam offered a well-connected location with a skilled workforce and a significant number of quality network providers and data centers in the area. The facility will replicate the entire SingleHop technology platform found at its U.S. locations, as well as replicate the security features of U.S. data centers, with biometric physical access controls, individually locking cabinets and 24-hour security. In addition, the Amsterdam data center will also be powered by SingleHop's award-winning LEAP3 platform, giving customers complete control over their infrastructure, regardless of data center location, from any smart phone or computer.

All of the company's current services will be offered through the new data center, including dedicated servers, cloud services, and managed services. All services will be covered by the SingleHop Customer Bill of Rights SLA, which guarantees service quality, customer service response times, network stability and much more. Customers can choose to deploy SingleHop's services at its data centers in Chicago, Phoenix or Amsterdam.

SingleHop is featuring an early-bird pre-sale offer for customers with predictable infrastructure needs to reserve server capacity in the new Amsterdam data center in advance of its official opening. Pre-sale buyers will receive twice the RAM and bandwidth allocations, plus 10 percent off base pricing for the first six months.
