Cisco has opened a European Union cloud region to host its ThousandEyes web performance monitoring service, to support partners and customers wanting to address data sovereignty requirements.
The cloud region is hosted in an Amazon Web Services data centre in Frankfurt, Germany, and will serve customers using ThousandEyes across the European Union and EMEA, said Cisco.
Marcus Gerstmann, head of sales for DACH and Central Europe for Cisco ThousandEyes, said: “As adoption of ThousandEyes grows, we are expanding the footprint of the platform itself, delivering enhanced performance to our user base and, in the case of the new EU cloud region, helping our customers comply with regional, local and industry-specific regulations and guidelines.”
He added: “Since acquiring ThousandEyes’ in 2020 [for around $1 billion], its internet and cloud intelligence technology has been integrated into Cisco’s product portfolio as quickly as possible. In the past year, we have more than doubled the number of customers we serve across the globe with cloud and internet visibility.”
