Echoworx has announced the opening of its new data centre in Germany. This move further entrenches Echoworx’s presence and competitive edge within the EU region.
Known for its proven manufacturing industries, from automotive to pharmaceutical, established financial core and growing industries like cybersecurity and tech, Germany is an unofficial economic leader within the EU region. And with new country-specific regulations spurred by the launch of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) last spring, the timing could not be better.
While the GDPR is a blanket term across the EU region, implementation varies from country to country. And when it comes to data residency, nearly every German company demands that their data remain within German borders. Both domestic and international companies looking to do business in Germany need to have access to German-hosted data centres to effectively compete.
“Knowing where and how data is stored is important when looking for a third-party partnership under new privacy regulations like the GDPR. When data starts to leave a protected zone, for example, the regulations still apply. Having access to a data centre within a target region, like Germany in this case, offers competitive advantages,” said Alex Loo, VP Operations at Echoworx.
To accommodate all business needs, in addition to its new German location, Echoworx currently has data centres in Canada, the US, Mexico, the UK and Ireland. All Echoworx data centres are specifically engineered with the highest standards in mind to protect data and ensure regulatory compliance is met for specific geographic areas.
