Cloudian offers new Amsterdam demo facility

US-based Cloudian, a native S3 object storage provider, has a new EMEA demonstration facility in Amsterdam. Located in the Zuid-Oost region of central Amsterdam, the centre will be hosted within Switch Datacentres’ facility and will enable Cloudian to provide proof-of-concept demonstrations locally.

Fuelled by UK and EU customer demand for its 100 percent native S3 object storage solutions, the launch of the new EU demonstration centre marks an important milestone in Cloudian’s EMEA expansion, it says. It follows Cloudian’s recent additions to its EMEA team across Netherlands, Germany and the UK.

Jacco van Achterberg, EMEA Sales Director at Cloudian, commented: “The facility enables Cloudian’s customers to see for themselves the scalability, performance, and versatility of our HyperStore products. By opening a locally accessible facility, EU clients will be able to evaluate our products based on their specific needs, and more clearly understand the possibilities opened up by our 100 percent native S3 architecture.”

Gregor Snip, Managing Director at Switch Datacentres: “We see an increasing demand for high quality Tier 4 data centre space, and are significantly expanding our capacity to capitalise on this. Highly-scalable solutions such as Cloudian HyperStore are fuelling a large part of that demand.”
