London, UK - 8 October 2015: Data center specialist, Zenium (www.zeniumdatacenters.com), has today announced the expansion of its global team with two new senior appointments. Following the recent launch of Turkey’s first wholesale colocation data center, Istanbul One, Mustafa Eden joins as Data Center Facility Manager in Turkey. Achim Weinacker joins as Sales Manager in Germany to support new business development at Zenium’s state-of-the-art facility, Frankfurt One.

Eden brings over 20 years of telco, data center management and operational experience in Turkey, Iran and Germany to Zenium. He most recently worked for Turkcell where he was responsible for core network roll-out, network division infrastructure management and data center infrastructure design, implementation and operations management of 21,000 square meters of white space at 31 facilities located in several regions across Turkey.

Weinacker has impressive levels of knowledge of the German telecommunications, IT and data center markets. He has over 15 years of experience in new business development and key account management skills gained at Telecity Germany, eShelter, InterXion Deutschland, and COLT Telecom.

Franek Sodzawiczny, Zenium’s CEO and Founder explained the significance of these appointments: “We are hugely proud of the major milestones that we have achieved this year. We have not only established firm foundations in Germany’s digital hub, Frankfurt, but we have also introduced a bespoke, carrier neutral, wholesale colocation solution to the Turkish data center market. The team has worked long and hard to make this possible and we are focused on maintaining this momentum. Zenium is already widely regarded as an innovative company, and with significant plans for new territories, I am confident that we will continue to be ‘one to watch’ in 2016.”

Zenium also commissioned independent research into the key issues for the data center sector going forward. The study entitled “Managing Growth, Risk and the Cloud” identified that 1 in 2 organisations are not operating a data center environment that could withstand, or continue to operate after a natural disaster, risking huge cost to the business. It also found that the desire to comply with increasingly stringent data legislation means that 83% of those interviewed will seek to lease more data center space from a local (domestic) provider. “The findings have also put the spotlight firmly on the fact that whilst 71% of IT professionals plan to use cloud services to manage growing data volumes, they have yet to recognise the importance of evaluating the data center infrastructure supporting the cloud,” Sodzawiczny concluded.
