Outscale has announced the opening of its new data center in San Jose, CA. The addition of a fourth data center in the U.S. will allow Outscale to support its customers’ increasing needs for cloud computing infrastructures. This new data center enables Outscale to offer enterprise customers access to its premium storage and compute services, delivering best-in-class performance, availability and customer support.

This latest infrastructure build-out in San Jose further demonstrates the company’s commitment to the U.S. market and better equips Outscale to address the cloud computing and Big Data requirements of its west coast customers. The cloud provider has once again selected Equinix to be its local partner and host of the point-of-presence (PoP) due to its certifications of SSAE 16, ISAE 3402 SOC 1 Type, SOC 2 Type and ISO 27001.

“Since we opened our doors in 2010, we have committed to helping our customers harness the power of cloud computing by providing a premium, enterprise-class IaaS and unparalleled customer support,” said Laurent Seror, founder and president, Outscale. “As the epicenter of technology innovation, Silicon Valley is a logical choice as we expand our presence in the United States to meet our customers’ needs.”

According to IDC, worldwide spending on public cloud services is expected to eclipse $203.4 billion worldwide in 2020, with the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for public coud services to be 21.5% for the period 2015-2020. This is nearly seven times the overall growth rate of IT spending, signaling a clear demand for cloud services.

With the addition of the Silicon Valley location, Outscale now has nine data centers globally spread across Europe, North America, and Asia. Outscale delivers business agility through:

  • Unparalleled performance – When it comes to building a cloud computing infrastructure to meet high performance computing demands, Outscale stands alone. The company has built its cloud with a highly reliable infrastructure based on Intel, NetApp and Cisco technologies, and holds the Cisco Managed Services Program (CMSP) Advanced Certification.

  • Unsurpassed scalability – Outscale offers an automated and scalable cloud, designed to support complex IT projects, while controlling operational costs.

  • Flexible pricing – Outscale offers a unique pricing model, one that allows its customers to pay by the year, month, hour or even second. Per hour and per second billing means customers only pay for the resources they use, potentially saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

Outscale was founded in France in 2010, and was one of the first pure play cloud providers in the world. Today, the company delivers the cloud computing infrastructure for dozens of global brands, including strategic partner Dassault Systemes, Airbus, and OpenDataSoft. In addition, Outscale serves as the vendor of choice for ISVs, VARs and startups around the world.

“We pride ourselves as an innovative cloud provider, one that is there for our customers with superior 24/7 support,” said Rob Rosborough, U.S. CEO, Outscale. “The expansion to Silicon Valley allows us to get closer to many of our customers, as we help them embark upon their Cloud journeys and maximize their investments.”
