Data Center POST, Kathy Xu (DCP-KX) Question: What makes Etix Everywhere unique among data center providers?
Etix Everywhere, Stephen Belomy (ETIX-SB) Answer: Unlike many other providers, Etix Everywhere offers a holistic approach to data center solutions by providing services for the finance, design, build and operation of smart infrastructures. Disrupting industry standards for financing solutions, our co-investment model allows customers to benefit from 50 percent data center ownership without assuming any of the responsibilities associated with build and operation.
Etix Everywhere provides design and construction services to create scalable data centers of any size, anywhere in the world. Our customers are given a choice between tailor-made data center facilities and pre-industrialized solutions, both of which include advanced architectural design. In addition, our Tier 3+ data centers require only 16 weeks to be deployed. Finally, as the sole operator of our facilities, we are dedicated to improving their efficiency, reliability and security, and commit 25 percent of turnover to our R&D team, Etix Labs, allowing them to shape our various software and hardware innovations.
DCP-KX Q: Are you planning to expand?
Etix Everywhere, Anthony Verda (ETIX-AV) Answer: Our goal is to create an international network of local data centers, allowing our clients to benefit from IT capacity wherever it’s needed. As of today, Etix Everywhere has built six facilities across Europe and Africa, including nine modules. In addition, there are currently eight data centers under construction as well as advanced negotiations throughout 20 countries, with more soon to come. Etix Everywhere experienced exponential growth throughout 2016 with a 150 percent growth rate in built data center modules and a 400 percent increase in data centers signed.
DCP-KX Q: What do you hope to accomplish at DCD New York this year?
ETIX-SB A: As Etix Everywhere begins to expand services into the United States, our mission at DCD New York is to share our company’s story with attendees, demonstrating how we can serve their individual infrastructure needs both today and in the future.
During the conference, our CEO, Charles-Antoine Beyney, will also share Etix Everywhere’s vision as part of his presentation about current trends and future predictions for the development of smart data centers. He will discuss what defines today’s smart data centers as well as the many ways in which providers are making facilities more intelligent with Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools, automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
