Interoute to provide Spacemetric with secure storage solution for satellite data, supports EU earth observation program for environmental and humanitarian research
Interoute Virtual Data Centre zone in Stockholm launched 6 months ago and is one of 17 global zones that make up Interoute private networked cloud.
“We chose Interoute as they could offer an efficient hybrid solution combining physical storage with the Interoute Virtual Data Centre in Stockholm. As a result, we are guaranteed secure storage of local data as well as superior access due to low latency. It also means that the development process is more agile, making it possible to quickly and easily scale our efforts up or down depending on demand”, said Mikael Stern, CEO at Spacemetric.
Matthew Finnie, Interoute CTO, commented: “It’s fantastic to be selected by Spacemetric for this exciting project supporting the EU earth observation program for environmental and humanitarian research. Interoute was the first global cloud provider to launch a zone in the Nordic region that offers both public and private cloud on one platform. And our Stockholm cloud zone is one of 17 global zones that make up our private networked cloud. This new project is validation that the ‘local presence, global reach’ approach to cloud is key to meeting the needs of the market in Europe”
