Come for the fish and chips, stay for the data centers.
Now Fpweb.net’s visits to London will include more than just a ride on the London Eye or catching a West End show – we’ll also be visiting our newest data center!
Yes, we’ve made it official and Fpweb.net officially has a physical presence in the European cloud market. After careful planning, network mapping and location scouting, we have chosen the United Kingdom to be the face of our cloud hosting across the pond.
While Fpweb.net has close ties to the international SharePoint hosting market with customers in over 80 countries, we look to extend our global reach by increasing our data center footprint overseas. Now the SharePoint hosting world has more options for dedicated, private cloud solutions as well as additional offsite backups and high availability options.
The London location is Fpweb.net’s third data center with two more in Missouri and Kansas, USA. All three boast enterprise-grade security that starts in the parking lot and extends all the way into the network’s application layer. Physical measures like guarded entry with access cards and biometric registration lead the way into cyber protection that is built into our entire network’s security framework. And while each data center features global compliances for various industries, the England facility also incorporates local compliances including ISO 27001 and N3 certifications among others.
Fpweb.net’s UK Data Center promises the 100% financially-backed uptimes, lighting connection speed, 24/7 support and security safeguards our customers’ expect while also offering another high availability option for customers utilizing multiple data centers to meet their business continuity plan. Plus, European customers can expect reduced or eliminated latency for their current SharePoint hosting environments.
Throughout our investigation process to identify the perfect city and facility for our customers’ data, we are pleased to report that our strict security and availability demands were able to coincide with our environmental ‘green’ approach to doing business.
Our Tier 3 UK data center happens to also be an award-winning green facility with cutting-edge, eco-friendly cooling and a decreased energy usage that reduces our carbon footprint by saving 400,000 kilograms of CO2 annually.
Fpweb.net’s Senior Network Manager, Matt Kinder helped lead the company into London and is optimistic that our international customers will find a strong value at our new location:
“We are excited to expand our worldwide offering from the tech side of Fpweb.net. This endeavor is consistent with the forward thinking goals of our team’s vision. We have placed ourselves in a great position to help our European customers while, at the same time, doing the right thing for our HA customers. Overall, we can’t wait for the improved results that this fully HA Data Center in the UK brings to both our company and our customer experience.”
