Computacenter provides private cloud to Spreadex
UK spreadbetting company Spreadex and IT services provider Computacenter have agreed a private cloud deployment deal worth £1.2 million (€1.4 million/$1.9 million), according to the Datacentres.com website.
The private cloud implementation will support the sport and financial spreadbetting service Spreadex provides.
Under the agreement, Computacenter will build an HP-based cloud environment that will incorporate 40TB of data – a set-up that will be replicated in Spreadex’s London and St. Albans UK data centres.
“The nature of our business means that we need all our systems to be highly available,” David Farlam, an infrastructure analyst at Spreadex, said.
“By basing our private cloud on a converged infrastructure stack from HP, we will be able to provide the security, availability and performance that our customers have come to expect.”
