(PRWEB) August 4, 2006
IXEurope plc (“IXEurope”, “the Company”) (AIM:IXE), one of Europe’s largest and fastest growing datacentre outsourcers with 12 IXDatacentres across four countries, has signed a significant contract with a ‘Big Four’ accountancy and consultancy firm. The initial contract value is approximately £15m over 10 years (excluding power revenues).
This win brings occupancy of net space across the three operational London IXDatacentres to over 80%. It also further underlines the demand for the London4 facility which IXEurope is due to open in H1 2007.
Demand for premier datacentre services for international enterprises is growing and IXEurope’s capability to provide professional and stable services is proving attractive to large multinationals across all sectors.
Separately, IXEurope has today also published a half year trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2006.
Guy Willner, Chief Executive of IXEurope said: “This excellent win is a clear demonstration of our capabilities to provide top quality services to leading international enterprises outside the main stream technology and financial services sector and is further evidence of the broadening of the market for our services.”
