Hivelocity, a leading provider of IaaS, announced today the availability of its bare-metal edge computing services in Frankfurt, Germany. Frankfurt is the first in a line of several new European and APAC locations Hivelocity will be introducing over the coming months as it continues to expand the reach of its edge computing platform.
Frankfurt joins Dallas, New York City, Los Angeles, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, and Seattle in the list of markets Hivelocity offers its suite of infrastructure services. Hivelocity’s platform lets users instantly deploy hundreds of Linux and Windows dedicated servers in any of these 8 global markets. Once bare-metal is deployed, users can view server health and resource usage data, establish data recovery points, perform OS reloads, interact with technical support, and much more. Each server has the option of being self-managed or managed, with the latter including things like proactive security patches and monitoring. Hivelocity’s expansion plans include adding edge computing to many new markets like London, Paris, Amsterdam, Singapore, Sydney, and Sao Paulo over the next three months.
“With customers hailing from over 130 countries, Hivelocity has long served a global market. As our customers’ businesses have grown and matured, so have their needs to optimize and scale the performance of their applications all over the world. By enabling our customers to deploy their compute and storage resources wherever in the world their end users are best served, we are providing them with a much better opportunity to maximize the end user experience and their own bottom line,” says Hivelocity CTO Ben Linton.
With more and more businesses recognizing the benefits of having their compute nodes at the edge, there has been a recent surge in upstart edge providers. Hivelocity believes its 17 years of IaaS experience and its obsessive focus on customer support gives it a leg up on competitors. “Our mantra has always been to be the best service provider our customers have ever worked with. We maintain a Net Promoter Score of 74+ which is a testament to the level of satisfaction our customers feel, and frankly heads and shoulders above our competitors. If a business needs to deploy 1,000 servers or just 10 servers around the globe, you can guarantee they are going to need some help and technical support along the way. Most of our competitors are new to the arena and all of their capital is invested in developers and hardware. We spend a lot of money on developers and hardware too, but we also employ nearly 100 technicians and engineers who work inside our data centers 24/7, providing the most exceptional technical support in the industry. Our support solutions involve experts with years of experience working with you in real time. Our competitors’ solution is to have you fix it yourself or reload the OS,” says Hivelocity COO Steve Eschweiler.
Hivelocity was founded in 2002 and serves roughly 6000 businesses out of its 12 North American data centers. For more information please visit https://www.hivelocity.net/.
