OpenMetal, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider, has announced the expansion of its cloud services to Europe via a data center footprint in Amsterdam, Netherlands. This move allows OpenMetal to introduce its On-Demand Private Clouds, built on OpenStack, to new European customers, as well as companies looking for a European presence.
This new presence will be within a three-story, purpose-built facility that offers redundancy and financial grade standard and incremental multi-tier security measures. The data center facility is also home to three of the world's largest internet exchanges, and is close to several key undersea cable landing stations.
