Dublin-based data hosting firm Hosting 365 has told siliconrepublic.com that it has in the past year invested €2m to upgrade its facilities to include a blade server environment and virtualisation technologies.
Hosting 365 managing director, Stephen McCarron, explained: “A year ago we took a risky outlook on what is required and we decided to build a cloud platform. We had the idea that hosted services can be delivered entirely across a virtualised environment, but bespoke for each customer.
“It cost us €2m to build out the high-end carrier-grade infrastructure because it required increased processing power and data storage.”
McCarron said the company signed key deals with HP for the blade servers and VMware for the virtualisation software.
