Many of you probably know about our Cloud services in the Netherlands. In fact, since our new platform was launched, we’ve seen thousands of customers using our Express Cloud to host their applications. I’ve talked to quite a few of them and when I ask what they would like us to add, the answer is often: “More PoPs to choose from”.
I’m proud to announce that today, we took the first step in our global expansion by launching the Leaseweb Cloud platform in the U.S.!
We took the infrastructure we’ve had in place since the opening of our U.S. office back in January 2011, and added the proven platform that we have in our data center in the Netherlands.
The result is a shiny new scalable Cloud platform, running the same services we already offer in Europe, connected by our first-class worldwide network. All features you know and love are offered with the U.S. services (including the Basic Firewall) – on a platform that is designed with redundancy in mind. If you’re interested in learning more about the technical setup, take a look at my previous blog.
To celebrate this launch, we’re temporarily offering all Express Cloud services in the U.S. with a discount of at least 25%, which will last for the duration of your contract. Head over to the Leaseweb website for an overview of the various packages available. As always, if you have any feedback, requests or suggestions: let us know in the comments!
