StorageCraft brings disaster recovery services to Europe through Interxion

18 Apr 2016

Software back-up and disaster recovery services provider StorageCraft Technology has announced a new partnership with Interxion to support its product suite in Europe.

StorageCraft Technology has entrusted Interxion with a data centre services contract that will power its products in Ireland and across Europe.

The StorageCraft family of companies, founded in 2003, provides back-up, disaster recovery, system migration and data-protection solutions for servers, desktops and laptops. For companies with business continuity concerns, StorageCraft offers software that reduces downtime, improves security and stability, and lowers the total cost of ownership.

“When partnering with a data centre service provider, proximity and comprehensive critical deployment solutions were key elements,” said Manuel Nadal, StorageCraft’s director of sales in Europe.

Nadal added that Interxion’s understanding of the business and plans to roll out new products and services in Europe were influential in this decision.

Location, location, location

“Ireland’s geographical location as a stepping stone into continental Europe makes it an ideal location for companies like StorageCraft to establish a pan-European base. We’re looking forward to working with StorageCraft during this exciting time of development as they continue to grow,” said Interxion Ireland’s managing director Karl Mulhall.

The European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral co-location services serves customers through 40 data centres in 11 European countries. According to a statement from the company, its strategic locations across Europe, in particular Dublin and Frankfurt, were a key factor to the winning of the StorageCraft contract.

Through its contract with Interxion, StorageCraft’s services will now be available in Europe for SMEs and larger businesses through their European headquarters in Cork. This initial partnership is expected to grow significantly with increased demand in the next 24 months.
