Cloud telecoms player Blueface has invested €850,000 to establish a second point of presence (PoP) data cetre in Dublin.

The PoP, which has been deployed using Dell data centre infrastructure, will be located at the TelecityGroup data centre in Northwest Business Park.

Blueface operates an IP technology platform developed in Ireland and deployed in more than 12 countries worldwide.

A second full point of interconnect means Blueface can now guarantee network availability, even in the unlikely event of reduced capacity in one data centre.

“We pride ourselves on providing a trusted service that continues to evolve in line with market demand,” said Blueface CEO Alan Foy.

“As a result, we continue to attract new business customers along with experiencing increased demand from existing customers.

“Our growing data centre requirements demonstrate this positive progression in Blueface’s growth and we are delighted to further develop our excellent relationship with TelecityGroup, and to have the support of Dell in deploying state-of-the-art technology for our second PoP,” Foy said.
