ST. LOUIS and LONDON (PRWEB UK) 12 February 2018
Pipkins has opened a new data centre in London, Dr. James Pipkins, President and CEO of Pipkins, Inc. officially announced today. Pipkins, Inc. is a leading provider of workforce management software solutions and services to the contact centre industry.
“To better serve our customers in the United Kingdom, continental Europe and the Middle East, we have opened a new data centre in London,” said Dr. Pipkins. “We selected a premiere data centre campus situated between and serving the Square Mile (London’s global financial district) and Tech City (the 3rd largest technology start-up cluster in the world). With its state-of-the-art colocation and interconnection services, reliability, security and performance, it was a logical choice for us. Many Fortune 500 companies, global financial giants, stock exchanges and tech companies utilize this data centre campus. We’re in very good company.”
Like the firm’s other data centres in Dallas and Houston, the new UK data centre is a secure SOC2 Type II data centre. It uses hyper-converged infrastructure for superior redundancy and runs on Windows Server 2016.
Pipkins customers east of the Atlantic Ocean should see improved performance due to reduced latency connecting to the firm’s new servers in London, which are approximately 4,700-4,900 miles closer to their locations compared to the firm’s Texas data centres. Pipkins UK, Ltd., will handle support for the new London data centre.
