OpenText expands its data centre in the Netherlands

Information management company OpenText has expanded its data centre in the Netherlands to accommodate its Carbonite Server offering.

The expanded regional support is said to empower OpenText’s SMB customers and partners with “greater flexibility” and “more options” to  store their data in accordance with UK and EU regulations. 

Carbonite Server is an all-in-one backup and recovery solution for physical, virtual and legacy systems with optional cloud failover. Carbonite Server offers various deployment options and the ability to restore current or historical data from the cloud or a local appliance, OpenText claims. 

"The regulatory landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace," said Prentiss Donohue, EVP SMB/C sales at OpenText.

 "OpenText is committed to expanding data centre support in additional regions to help our customers address complex data sovereignty issues by uniformly ensuring compliance with government regulations,” Donohue added. 

The decision to expand demonstrates OpenText’s commitment to continue to grow its European footprint, and provide support to SMBs and their partners, the company said. 

"As a long-standing partner, we are excited about the availability of a data center outside the UK, as this will provide our customers with additional options and make it even easier for them to comply with GDPR regulations," said Andreas Schröder, team lead backup & continuity at EBERTLANG.

 "We believe this move is another important building block to further establish the portfolio of MailStore, Carbonite and Webroot as the leading data security and email archiving solutions in the DACH region," Schröder added.
