Signs two location deal with big colo provider

By Vinod

Cloud app provider Zoho is are opening up two data centres in Amsterdam and Dublin

The California based cloud business app provider has also launched services  at Zoho.eu due to its expanding European customer base.

The company signed a deal with Equinix to help it connect with more customers, illustrating the depth of Zoho’s ambitions. Offices are already established in London, Singapore, Japan, China and India.

Zoho stated the importance of data privacy as a reason for its European investment. The opening of two European data centres ensures that the data of its European customers will remain within the continent.

A date for the completion of the new data centres has not yet been confirmed, nor have the two companies stated the finances of the deal.

Raj Sabhlok, president of Zoho said ‘‘Europe is an important market for us. More and more companies here [Europe] are moving to the cloud and new ones are mushrooming across the continent.

‘‘We can see a rise in demand for Zoho products, and are happy to announce that we are increasing our investment in Europe, starting with these two data centres and zoho.eu.’’
