After a successful initial launch of the Minkels MatrixCube in Belgium this past year, Minkels will now extend this offering to the Netherlands as well. The Dutch market launch will then be followed by other countries including Switzerland, France, the United Kingdom and global export regions. The new data center solution is aimed at enterprises deploying hybrid cloud environments as well as SMB customers.
Minkels’ customer research showed that not all companies are ready for outsourcing their IT infrastructure; many of them prefer to keep their IT infrastructure, in whole or in part, within their own organisation. This is the reason that Minkels and its parent company Legrand have developed the MatrixCube – a “turnkey and reliable mini data center that is easy to set up.” This mini data center solution is now available in Belgium and the Netherlands, with other countries to follow in Europe and beyond.
“The new fully integrated solution meets the needs of small and medium sized companies that want to keep their IT infrastructure within the four walls of their organisation,” said Vincent Liebe, Marketing Manager, Minkels. “The MatrixCube is also well-suited for companies that want to keep parts of their hybrid IT infrastructure in-house, or some of it in the cloud. We will first introduce the MatrixCube to the Dutch market, followed by other countries where Minkels is active, including Switzerland and the United Kingdom. After that, we will introduce the MatrixCube globally depending on customer demand.”
The European launch will be accompanied by Minkels’ presentation of the MatrixCube at Infosecurity (15 and 16 June 2016, Brussels, Belgium – Booth: 03.A047).
