The integration of GICÂs expertise and client base under the IXEurope brand will represent a significant increase in business continuity capability, a service which IXEurope already provides as a white-label service to major outsourcers and to a small number of direct clients. Combining IXEuropeÂs best-in-class datacentre capabilities with GICÂs highly professional business continuity systems and skills provides an unrivalled breadth and depth of services and expertise in the provision of datacentre-based services specifically tailored for the enterprise and banking sector.
Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope comments: "We are particularly pleased to have been able to acquire a company of GICÂs standing. In the past 5 years we have provided a number of business continuity solutions to our major outsourcing partners across Europe and have seen this as a natural adjunct to our core datacentre services strategy. We expect the GIC team to help us create a fuller BC offering across our four operating countries which we will continue to sell predominantly through our outsourcing partners."
JÃ¶rg Rosengart, Managing Director of GIC mbH says: "Joining IXEurope is excellent news for our staff, clients and partners. With increasing level of operational regulation such as Basel II and Sarbanes-Oxley legislation clients are looking for more integrated solutions linking desktop recovery ever closer to core datacentre infrastructure recovery. We will now be able to deliver a broader and deeper offering than ever before, providing clients with best-in-class solutions across Germany, France, Switzerland and the United Kingdom."
Harro Beusker, Managing Director of IXEurope Germany added: ÂWe are looking forward to having Jorg and his team join us as a part of IXEurope. Their skills and resources will help us achieve our objective of being both the brand leader and the thought leader in our marketplace."
