Zurich Cloud Server platform & network upgrade

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Qube recently completed a full upgrade to our VMware cloud platform hosted in our Zurich data center.

The upgrade provides us with significantly increased compute, storage & RAM capacity in Europe on our VMware Cloud Server platform to deal with increasing demand. There has been a lot of interest in hosting at this site, especially from our customers in the Financial industry.

Switzerland offers several advantages as a location for hosting, particularly for those companies serving customers in Central & Eastern Europe. Central European location, strong privacy & data protection laws, political and financial stability and the highest per-capita IT expenditure in the world are all factors that make the country an attractive place to do business and invest.

As well as the upgrades to Qube’s VMware Cloud platform, we completed our connection to the Level(3) Communications IP Transit point-of-presence in Zurich. We are now using Level(3) as a primary transit provider across all of our data center locations. This also means that Qube can now offer high quality, low-latency Level(3) IP transit to our customers in Zurich.
