(PRWEB) April 1, 2007
IXEurope, Europe's specialist datacentre services company, has announced that it has sealed an agreement with London-based marketing consultancy IT Accord.com Ltd to promote the company's services to the 450 companies affiliated to Lloyd's of London.
Lloyd's is the world's leading insurance market providing specialist insurance services to businesses in over 200 countries and territories. With organisations of all sizes, including 20 of the largest insurance players in Europe, the Lloyd's affiliate companies are keen to increase their levels of security and off-site storage, making IXEurope's datacentre service of particular interest.
IXEurope will launch the partnership by hosting the Lloyd's of London Insurance Market IT Forum Seminar on the 29 March 2007, where Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope, will present on the "Insurance Industry Challenge... Reducing datacentre total cost of ownership (TCO) while increasing business agility."
IT Accord.com business development director, Brian Groves, commented: "IXEurope has a number of innovative and very attractive services that would benefit insurance companies in Lloyd's and the wider London market. As well as IXEurope's datacentre service, we feel that business continuity could also be a highly-demanded option. The UK insurance industry is under constant pressure to comply with new regulations, achieve higher levels of security and demonstrate robust business continuity planning: IXEurope can help in these areas."
IT Accord.com, based at Lloyd's itself, will initiate a number of campaigns in 2007 and ensure that IXEurope is well-represented at Lloyd's. With many smaller enterprises -- brokers, managing agents and specialist underwriters -- all requiring security and related IT services, ITAccord.com feels that IXEurope's award-winning portfolio will fit the bill.
IT Accord.com was founded in 2004 and brings together specialist IT solution providers whose products or services offer particular benefits to the UK insurance market.
IXEurope is one of Europe's fastest growing providers of datacentre services. Its principal activities include primary datacentre services, hosting infrastructure and business continuity solutions.
IXEurope works with enterprise and internet customers to provide resilient datacentre infrastructure to house their IT systems far more cost-effectively than through in-house provision. The benefits include optimised IT performance, improved systems availability and reduced corporate risk through improved regulatory compliance. By continually focusing on quality, IXEurope also gives clients exceptional service levels and on-site access to a high level of technical expertise.
With award winning datacentre facilities in key European cities, broad technology expertise and a proven track record, IXEurope provides solutions that give customers the confidence that their operations are protected. The Company has over 450 customers in the enterprise, internet and networking markets including Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Börse Systems AG, Citigroup, Network Rail and France Telecom.
Founded in 1998, IXEurope was listed on the London Stock Exchange in April 2006.
