In accordance with LeaseWeb’s global expansion plans, it has announced the expansion of its cloud services in the UK and Australia. It now offers with this expansions customers cloud services on four continents in locations across Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.
LeaseWeb offers single point of contact, compliance with local requirements and can ‘speak the local language’ due to its global presence. The expansion in London and Sydney were driven by three main factors namely ongoing growth, change in international markets and its belief that expansion should be driven by customer requirements. Both UK and Australia are large markets for cloud based services that are predicted to have significant growth in the coming years. Particularly due to Brexit, UK based companies are looking to partner with a global cloud provider capable of providing their services both in and outside United Kingdom and many EU based customers are looking to have a footprint in the UK as well and LeaseWeb aims to tap that market.
The Sydney data center is the result of LeaseWeb’s partnership with Acronis and by new data centers Acronis customers can benefit the full form of cloud service offerings in Australia.
