The massive demand for connectivity is fueling the need for reliable data center services, particularly in emerging and secondary international markets. For this reason, many data center providers are expanding their global footprint to provide critical backend data transport and storage in key locations.Etix Everywhere, which experienced exponential growth and international success in 2016, is a noteworthy example. In February, the company opened new offices in New York and San Francisco, and then launched six data centers in various Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities across the U.S. and Europe, as well as emerging markets in Africa, the Middle East, Scandinavia and South America. Eight additional facilities are also under construction.
Etix Everywhere saw a 150 percent growth rate in built data center modules in 2016, with advanced negotiations for projects taking place in 20 countries. What’s more, Etix Everywhere attained a 400 percent increase in signed data centers. The company also had a significant increase in personnel, which will provide the necessary backbone for the R&D that is needed to enhance its services.
“Given recent expansion into two major U.S. commercial hubs and exciting new data center projects across both established and emerging markets throughout the world, 2016 has proven to be a significant year of growth for Etix Everywhere,” stated Charles-Antoine Beyney, Co-Founder and CEO of Etix Everywhere. “Our hard work and dedication to providing superior data center facilities and services for global customers has driven our international success.”
Stephen Belomy, SVP U.S. West Coast at Etix Everywhere, also commented on the expansion.
“At Etix Everywhere, we have broadened our reach outside of major metro areas and global connectivity hubs to bring superior data center services to emerging, secondary markets around the world,” Belomy stated. “Our expansion into the U.S. has proven especially successful and I am excited to see how our flexible and holistic approach to data center services will translate across the global market.”
