News For The New Year – We Are Preparing Easysquare For The Future
The easysquare platform records about 2,000 users at the moment and was located at
the PROMOS` own data centre in Berlin . “The current growth trend combined with
the significantly increasing demand at the market has brought us to mind that
our infrastructural concept needs to be geared to future requirements of
scalability, stability and performance. In the future we are assuming a number
of at least 10,000 easysquare users, so we need to create the prerequisites
today already”, explains Volker Schulz, Chief Information Officer of PROMOS, as
the motives for the move. For this reason we decided to relocate the easysquare
platform to Frankfurt to the Claranet GmbH. This way we can profit from the
linkage opportunities of the Claranet GmbH to the German Internet Backbone in
Frankfurt, which lets us frame the scalability of the necessary bandwidth more
flexible in the future.
Beyond that, the Claranet GmbH, as an experienced and strong hosting provider, offers us the opportunity to draw on additional security technologies and standards. “With the move of the easysquare platform we have laid a significant foundation for projects in the future. With the Claranet we are having a competent partner by our side, who gives us the opportunity to expand our infrastructure for the easysquare platform freely and to adjust to our user`s requirements”, Schulz explains the advantages of the new situation.
