Sungard AS has announces its most significant expansion in the Irish market to date, in partnership with Digital Realty Trust, Inc. a global provider of data centre / center solutions. This latest investment will increase Sungard AS’ presence and capability within Ireland, and highlights its commitment to driving substantial business growth across the region. This expansion expects to see the creation of approximately 50 new job opportunities within Ireland for Sungard AS, across multiple areas such as technical operations, customer services, and sales and marketing.
As a crucial gateway for US based organizations seeking to do business in Europe, Sungard AS has witnessed increased demand from organizations looking to host their data in Ireland, and to benefit from the latest infrastructure and knowledge economy that is rapidly developing within the country. With demand ranging from financial services organizations looking for the highest level technology solutions, through to government bodies who are increasingly moving towards a digital first approach, Sungard AS’ expansion will ensure that rapidly growing organizations located both in Ireland and across the world can benefit from its global cloud platform and managed services, based on Irish soil.
The partnership with Digital Realty will provide a state of the art Certified Tier III facility and underlying infrastructure from which Sungard AS can host its award-winning global cloud platform and full range of production and recovery solutions. Customers will also have access to Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) - for which Sungard AS was recently identified as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service.
The new facility will go live and will be available for customer operations in Q3, 2015.
