Dimension Data Expands Global Cloud Data Center Presence, Opens Three New Facilities

Dimension Data, the USD 6 billion global ICT services and solutions provider, has announced that three new global cloud hosting data centers will go live to address the ongoing demand for enterprise-grade cloud services in Toronto, Canada; Auckland, New Zealand; and next month in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The launch of the new MCPs follows the announcement released by Cisco that it will use Dimension Data’s Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) and SaaS solutions to deliver a suite of mid-market centric cloud services to its customers and resellers. According to the statement, Dimension Data will manage and operate an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering for Cisco, which will be bundled to deliver differentiated hybrid cloud solutions.

Managed hosting services

Dimension Data‘s MCPs host the company’s public cloud hosting Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and managed hosting services. Each MCP provides end-users in that region with low-latency access to enterprise-grade public, private and hosted private cloud services.

“Brazil, Canada, and New Zealand are significant new expansions to our MCP capacity and demonstrate acceleration in the pace of additional deployments,” said Steve Nola, CEO of Dimension Data’s ITaaS Business Unit. “Adding seven new MCPs in just 12 months has almost doubled our footprint. Expanding to 13 MCP locations gives Dimension Data the largest enterprise-class cloud presence in the world, and is testament to increasing global demand from both new and existing clients.”
