Rackspace announced that it will have a new datacenter in the heart of Germany. Joining other major companies of the domain in Frankfurt, the company asserted the strict data protection laws in the DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region as its pinnacle reason.
The American managed cloud service major makes its first footprint in Europe arming 12 data centers now worldwide.
“With the opening of our data centre in Germany, we can provide the highest level of availability, security, performance and management, and also help our customers address data protection requirements by providing them with multi-cloud deployment options,” said Alex Fuerst, who heads up Rackspace’s DACH operations. “As the demand for managed services increases in the German-speaking region, companies of all sizes in all vertical are embracing multi-cloud approaches to IT, so that each of their workloads runs on the platform where it can achieve the best performance and cost efficiency.
“More and more of those companies are turning to Rackspace expertise and support for their critical IT services and data,” Fuerst added.
Other major company’s data center in Frankfurt includes, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, and IBM.
The new data center is reckoned to become operational by mid-2017.
