Savvis, a CenturyLink company (CTL) and global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, marked its first data centre expansion into continental Europe with the opening today of its data centre in Frankfurt, Germany.

Well-situated within Frankfurt's financial district, the data centre features a modular build, abundant capacity and high-power density for serving enterprises with Savvis' full suite of enterprise-class solutions, including colocation, managed services, cloud computing and network services.

"Savvis' data centre expansion into Germany signifies a major milestone in our plans to serve growing demand in the European market," said Bill Fathers, president of Savvis. "Our multinational clients expect access to the same Savvis capabilities regardless of where they're operating geographically; our investment in Frankfurt recognizes and supports the increasing hosting needs in this region."

Savvis operates more than 50 data centres worldwide, including four in the United Kingdom and the new continental Europe data centre in Frankfurt, with more than 2 million square feet of gross raised floor space throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Savvis customers in Frankfurt gain low-latency market access to more than 150 global and local carriers, along with the trading systems of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The data centre also offers Savvis Symphony Dedicated private cloud service, with Savvis Symphony Virtual Private Data Centre (VPDC) public cloud services launching in early 2013.

"There's strong demand for Savvis' unmatched cloud, managed services and colocation solutions in continental Europe," said Donald Badoux, managing director, Savvis Germany. "Frankfurt is an important market for regional and international enterprises seeking the types of scalable, cost-efficient and flexible IT solutions that we offer."

The global data centre news follows the Savvis announcement in May about the opening of its new German headquarters in Frankfurt.
