As the reliance on digital services surges so does the demand for a modern data center—the heart of the digital economy. While the digital economy continues to boost growth and development across the corporate world, numerous companies race to capitalise on information systems through scalable data centers to ensure the digital data stays available, accessible and secure. However, set against this backdrop, how can forward-thinking leaders equip their businesses with a modern data center to handle the changes coming their way? The answer lies with DATA4—a Paris-based data center operator leading the charge to unleash the full potential of information systems via scalable data centers in France, Italy, Spain and Luxembourg.
DATA4 finances, designs, builds and operates its own data centers, to offer its customers hosting solutions that are flexible, scalable, high-performing and secure, as well as environmentally friendly. With a significant footprint across the European continent and its primary connectivity node based in Milan, Italy, DATA4 follows a hybridised cloud-based approach to data center infrastructure management (DCIM). At Milan, DATA4 is geographically positioned as the second largest node of interconnection after Via Caldera with a massive telco infrastructure from D4 that has carriers ISPs, and CSPs installed to feed digital services for Italian clients. Apart from being a Microsoft Partner Network that supports hybridisation of information systems, DATA4 offers direct connectivity to Microsoft Azure and global cloud connectivity solutions.
Backed by over 150 cloud providers and major internet exchange points across Europe, the company efficiently manages its data center platform as a single virtual data center directly connected to the internet and cloud ecosystems worldwide. “Enterprises and IT partners can consolidate their IT infrastructures in a multi-cloud environment with direct and secure access to over 150 cloud destinations from any of our data centers,” states Olivier Micheli, CEO, DATA4.
The uniqueness of DATA4 stems from its portfolio of smart DCIM services tailored for optimal customer experience with round the clock collocation space visibility. From infrastructure management, resource optimisation, racks and dedicated buildings to enhanced capacity planning and connectivity, DATA4’s portfolio covers it all. The company’s D4 Digital Hub offers advanced services through various partners, all on a single platform. These advanced services include managed services for storage and HPC, professional services for data center migration and relocation, and hybrid IT DCIM services to manage IT equipment. D4 Hub Cloud provides efficient inter and intra-campus connectivity services with private and dedicated links to major CSPs.
The innovative combination of D4 Digital Hub and D4 Hub Cloud enables clients hosted by DATA4 to seamlessly expand their networks to Microsoft Azure or any preferred cloud solution. The D4 Hub Cloud platform delivers service-level agreements (SLA) with secure and competent cloud services that allow the clients’ networks to bypass the internet in a geographical agnostic way. “The D4 Hub Cloud effectively copes with the ever-evolving interconnections of hybrid multi-cloud architectures while our data center campuses are virtualised as a unified platform, directly expanding into the global cloud ecosystem,” adds Micheli. DATA4’s Hub Cloud empowers clients with multiplexed cloud destinations on a common link, allowing for enhanced security, and streamlined management of their gateways between public and private clouds.
The clients can reap the benefits of instant access, adjustable bandwidths, interconnections on-demand, and reduced time to market. Flexibility aside, the company’s platform guarantees high performance and complete control over the internet, cost, and diverse routes from DATA4’s campuses to CSPs.
DATA4 boasts of a five-fold increase in customer portfolio and a turnover of over 30 percent in the last three years. With four data centers being constructed in France and Italy, and a new campus in Madrid, DATA4 aims to enhance its DCIM portfolio for an improved environmental footprint across Europe.
