UpCloud announced the opening of its data centre in Warsaw to ensure better service and support to enterprise customers located in Central Europe.
UpCloud, as part of its expansion in Europe, has already set up data centres in Helsinki, London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Madrid. In addition, the company has data centres in New York, San Jose and Chicago, Singapore.
UpCloud did not reveal the investment of the company in the new data centre in Warsaw. The company said the PL-WAW1 is UpCloud’s 11th data centre and 7th in Europe. It is situated in modern facilities of Equinix IBX WA3 Data Center opened in March 2020.
The Warsaw data centre is also running fully on the AMD EPYC processor architecture, the new breed of server processors with more CPU cores and increased performance on virtually all workloads. The PL-WAW1 is now ready for deploying servers from the UpCloud Control Panel.
UpCloud’s international growth is powered by the €18 million investment secured in January 2020.
This investment round was led by Connected Capital & Partners, a Netherlands based B2B software growth investor and includes participation from Finnish Industry Investment, a Finnish state-owned investment company as well as Inventure, a Finnish Venture Capital company which also invested into UpCloud in 2016.
The company will be adding ten new data centres cross all key markets in Europe, Asia, and North America, as well as new markets such as Australia — throughout 202-21.
UpCloud’s founder and CTO Joel Pihlajamaa said the company is also looking for new employees in all their offices in Helsinki, London, Seattle and Singapore. UpCloud plans to recruit more than 100 new employees over the next 24 months.
