Volta Data Centre Partners with Eunetworks to Offer Its Dc Connect Connectivity Service Across London

14 January 2015

Bandwidth provider euNetworks Group Limited (SGX: 5VT.SI), has selected Volta Data Centre to join its dc connect service, providing instant and scalable high bandwidth data connectivity across London, with onward connectivity to 250 data centres in Europe.
 
Volta’s Great Sutton Street (GSS) location provides an important advantage for customers due to its close proximity to the City, the West End and London’s new-media hub in Shoreditch. Cloud and Managed Service Providers, financial, media and content companies will benefit from the £8m euNetworks has invested in pre-deploying high bandwidth infrastructure in London, helping retain the city’s position as a leading technology hub. Volta GSS is located on a strategically important route in the heart of London on the dc connect service, which interconnects all selected data centres and provides fast access to the Docklands, Slough, North and south London, as well as the rest of the world.  
 
As London businesses are increasingly offering Cloud-based services, where all data is stored in a data centre, not on the user’s computer, they must have the bandwidth to support them.
euNetworks offers a five-day delivery of a dark fibre based network to its customers, plus a choice of fibre, Wavelengths and Ethernet service offerings.
 
Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer of euNetworks, says, “Teaming with Volta for our dc connect service was a natural development for us in the London market. Volta is a growing business and is working to target the key customer sectors that we have identified with a real need for this service. We are happy to be working with Volta; and its connectivity and cloud infrastructure is critically important to businesses as it enables the agility and flexibility our customers seek.”
 
Matthew Dent, CEO, Volta Data Centre, adds, “Cisco estimates that by 2017 global Cloud traffic will reach 5.3 zettabytes. In this environment the reliability and latency of the connectivity is very important, so euNetwork’s decision to choose Volta to join its connectivity service further proves that we can put London businesses at the heart of the Internet’s most powerful services, providing access to global markets.”
 
Dent continues, “For any Managed Services Provider it is essential to look for a data centre with multiple Tier 1 carrier options and diverse entry points into the building, as well as Tier 2 carrier services, in order to achieve full resilience. We look forward to partnering with euNetworks in working to help bring superfast broadband to the capital.”
