Luxembourg-based EBRC, a colocation data center operator and specialist in managing highly sensitive information, has chosen data center operator MIGSOLV as its UK partner. The move would provide EBRC’s clients with a broader choice of international facilities and a UK data center presence to address the potential data transfer challenges of Brexit.
Located in the geographical heart of Europe, EBRC (European Business Reliance Centre) provides data center, cyber security, cloud and managed services to 280 clients from 40 countries.
By selecting MIGSOLV as its UK partner, EBRC can now offer its clients a wider selection of data centers under a single contract – including a UK colocation data center which some are seeking to address the uncertainties posed by Brexit. Similarly, MIGSOLV can now offer customers additional facilities on mainland Europe.
EBRC will also appoint a partner in other major European countries including Germany, Switzerland and Belgium.
Data Centers Luxembourg
Describing itself as ‘Europe’s digital fortress’, EBRC operates five highly-secured, interconnected colocation data centers in Luxembourg – three of them Tier IV-certified – providing 17,000 square meters of dedicated server space. It specializes in supporting organizations that are dependent on highly sensitive information, with particular strength in the finance, government and biotech sectors.
“Our partnership with MIGSOLV is a core part of our ambitious growth plans,” said Alexander Duwaerts, International Client Development Director, EBRC. “We want to offer a wider portfolio of highly secure data centers in addition to our own in Luxembourg. And the UK is especially important with Brexit on the horizon as customers are concerned about the implications it may have for cross-border data transfer. Many want to secure a presence in a UK facility to protect their options and ensure they can continue trading with Britain without disruption when Brexit takes effect.”
“Our link with MIGSOLV goes back many years as their team advised us on the initial development of our own data centers,” added Mr. Duwaerts. “With this long-standing relationship and the extremely high security of their Gatehouse data center, they’re the right UK partner for us and our customers.”
MIGSOLV Data Center UK
MIGSOLV provides IT colocation services from its “ultra-secured” Gatehouse data center complex in Norwich, England. It would provide flexible rack space to public bodies and companies from small organizations to large enterprises. This is backed by an IT migration service to help clients move their systems to the Gatehouse plus comprehensive, round-the-clock support.
“EBRC is one of Europe’s most highly-reputed data center operators – particularly in the data-critical sector of financial services,” said David Manning, Managing Director of MIGSOLV. “We’re well-matched in the emphasis both our companies place on the highest levels of security and customer service. EBRC has staked its reputation on this, so I’ve no doubt they’re the right fit for us and that this is a partnership that will prove highly productive.”
