SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) April 26, 2018
Assembla, the world’s only provider of Enterprise Cloud Version Control (ECVC), is expanding its cloud infrastructure to the European Union. With international growth on the rise, and looming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the move will best accommodate the company’s growing customer base, 46% of which is international.
“Assembla is thrilled to be expanding our presence internationally with cloud in the EU,” said Paul Lynch, Assembla CEO. “Not only is our plan to offer fully scalable and secure cloud infrastructure, but the growing demands of our business also require us to increase headcount in our Dublin office to ensure the continued success of our global presence. This expansion is a direct result of our business growth and a necessary next step to accommodate the momentum.”
The Assemba EU Cloud will run on modern AWS infrastructure in the Europe (Frankfurt) Region. Customers using the Assembla EU Cloud will be able to take advantage of low latency and world-class AWS performance with failover options.
“At Assembla, we want to offer choices for our customers that make the most sense for their businesses and teams. This update will offer one more tool in our customers’ toolkit as they develop and build the next generation of innovative products,” said Jacek Materna, Assembla CTO. “In addition, with the rise of compliance regulations, specifically GDPR, the EU Cloud will be especially beneficial to customers concerned with data privacy, data protection and the rise of preferences for data localization.”
In conjunction with the EU Cloud, Assembla is providing customers an automated way to formalize and share with their stakeholders that they use Assembla in a manner that meets GDPR data processing obligations. The Data Processing Addendum (DPA), pre-signed by Assembla, is a self-serve and easy-to-execute document that only requires an electronic signature from Assembla customers.
