ServiceNow Boosts Data Centre Capacity in Europe
European capabilities expanded with additional
data centre facilities in UK and Ireland
ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), the leading digital workflow company
that makes work, work better for people, is increasing investment
in its data centre infrastructure by developing new facilities in
two new locations: Newport, United Kingdom and Dublin, Ireland.
This investment will continue to support customers’ digital
transformation journeys and help customers navigate the post-Brexit
These new data centres will establish two new pairings for the
hosting of customer instances: a UK-sovereign pair between London
and Newport, and an EU-sovereign pair between Amsterdam and Dublin.
These new data centre pairings will form part of ServiceNow’s
Advanced High Availability Architecture and will continue to ensure
the scalability of its cloud services.
The new Amsterdam and Dublin data centre pair went live earlier
this month, with the London and Newport pair expected to go live
This investment takes ServiceNow’s global data centre pairs to
11, spanning five continents, and supported by six global support
centres to serve customers’ digital transformation needs.
“Our investment in new data centre facilities in Europe will
provide infrastructure that supports customers in an ever-changing
landscape and aligns closely with their organizations
requirements,” said Chris Pope, VP Innovation, ServiceNow.
“Some customers are more cautious in their adoption of cloud
technologies owing to a fear of the unknown about Brexit
agreements. By developing our new facilities, this will enable us
to service those customers more in line with their requirements,”
Roy Illsley, Chief Analyst Enterprise IT & Enterprise from
Omdia says: “Brexit seems a forgotten event now COVID-19 has become
the focus of attention globally, but in both scenarios, the need
for resilient cloud-based geographic capacity is of paramount
importance. ServiceNow operates a twin pair approach to delivering
its services to customers with the data centres in the same region.
By opening two new data centres, one in Dublin as the twin for
Amsterdam, and the other in Newport, the twin for London, any
concerns around a post-Brexit world have been answered for
ServiceNow customers. Omdia believes that both Brexit and COVID-19
will increase demand for cloud-based services as organisations look
to become more agile, flexible, and adopt an opex approach to
service delivery as they look to link IT expenditure more directly
to business activity.”
