TelecityGroup’s Frankfurt Gutleutstrasse data centre to ensure security and resilience of SaaS services for media and publishing industries
14 March 2011: Digital Technology International (DTI™), an integrated solutions provider for digital and print publishing, today announced it has chosen TelecityGroup as its data centre partner in Europe to support its launch of DTI Cloud, the company’s high performance Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) publishing platform.
Headquartered near Salt Lake City, Utah and with seven offices in Europe and the UK, DTI delivers solutions for every aspect of digital and print publishing including circulation, content management (CMS), and advertising. Its customers – primarily newspaper publishers – are facing a rapidly changing market, and DTI needs to ensure it is ahead of these changes to help them prepare and thrive in the competitive digital media world. The highly resilient and secure hosting environment provided by TelecityGroup, as well as the expertise of its employees, will ensure the optimal delivery of its Cloud publishing platform in Europe.
Paul Gillogaley, Managing Director, & Vice President of Sales, International, DTI comments: “The publishing industry is seeing a fundamental shift towards cloud computing, firstly due to the move towards using digital channels to deliver content, and as a means of reducing cost. Since launching DTI Cloud in the Unites States a little over one year ago, more than 200 newspapers have enjoyed the significant benefits, and want to ensure we can provide the same secure, reliable services via our Cloud platform for our European customers. TelecityGroup’s Gutleutstrasse facility in Frankfurt is the ideal environment; not only is it built and managed to the highest standards, but it is at the geographic centre of the European Union enabling us to provide very high levels of service, and more security than can normally be afforded in-house. TelecityGroup also has a strong track record in supporting US companies coming to Europe. Working in partnership with TelecityGroup has been a great experience – they continue to surpass our expectations for both service levels and engineering knowledge.”
One of the key drivers behind DTI’s decision to chose TelecityGroup was its ability to access the high levels of service, support and engineering experience available at the Gutleutstrasse facility, all of which is available 24x7x365 and critical in ensuring the ongoing effective delivery of DTI’s services. In addition TelecityGroup’s commitment to security best practice is underlined by its ISO27001:2005 Security Management accreditation, the stringent international management standard for data, IT and physical security. These security measures are essential for publishers using DTI’s software and services who must also adhere to strict customer data protection regulations.
Martin Essig, Country Manager, TelecityGroup Germany, comments: “Due to the speed at which the media industry is moving online, DTI’s customers are faced with significant growth opportunities. It is essential they have an experienced data centre partner to support them, and a guarantee that the on-the-ground support and service they receive is expert and reliable. At TelecityGroup our reputation is built on a unique combination of highly skilled and committed employees and premium quality data centres. We have a proven track record in helping US companies take advantage of the opportunity that Europe offers, and we’re pleased to be supporting DTI with the launch of its European Cloud platform.”
