Site to provide cloud and recovery services
Sungard AS partnered with Digital Realty to take a Tier III data centre in Dublin, Ireland.
Growing demand from companies wanting to store their business’ data in Ireland led to the move.
Digital Realty will provide a Certified Tier III data centre facility from which Sungard AS will host its cloud platform and range of production and recovery solutions, also giving customers DRaaS.
Sungard said the facility will be ready and functional for customers to deploy by Q3 2015.
Gary Watson, GM of Sungard AS, Ireland said: ""We work with Digital Realty in other territories, and know that its technology is of the highest standard, so we are proud to be able to continue to offer our customers best of breed services."
Bernard Geoghegan, MD EMEA, Digital Realty said: "The Irish market continues to benefit from the investments that many large and successful technology organisations such as Sungard AS are making in the country.
"Ireland’s infrastructure supports the high speed, low latency networks that are vital to a variety of businesses, ranging from cloud providers through to large financial organisations and social media giants.
"We believe that this latest partnership will attract even more investment into Ireland, as well as giving organisations access to world class production and recovery solutions."
