Business continuity and cloud services provider eFolder announced in early February that it opened an Amsterdam data center.
The new facility is the company's first Europe data center, and signifies its continued expansion into broader markets and a move to provide partners in the region with full access to eFolder's services. Opening an Amsterdam data center also enables clients to meet demand for locally hosted data, as well as regulations for data residency by the European Union.
To ensure compliancy with the highest government and industry standards, eFolder has subjected its facilities to strict audits and availability testing. The Amsterdam data center is SSAE 16 Type II and SOC certified, and the average eFolder site experiences less than five minutes of downtime each year.
In 2014, eFolder expanded its operations in the U.S., the U.K. and Sweden, as well as adding 80 jobs. In addition to the new Amsterdam facility, the company also operates an Atlanta data center, a Salt Lake City data center and a British Columbia data center.
