Fourth TelecityGroup data centre to create ten new Dublin jobs
24 February 2015
TelecityGroup Ireland is on the lookout for highly skilled engineers as building starts on its new state-of-the-art data centre in Blanchardstown, Dublin. The new centre, set to open in summer 2015, will create ten new roles in engineering.
The company, a provider of carrier-neutral data centres, already employs sixty people in Dublin across three data centre facilities. Its data centres are attractive to companies that are expanding into Europe and seeking a European base for their data.
The fourth data centre will host international, national and metropolitan Tier 1 and 2 carriers, ISPs and content distribution networks, which provide access to transatlantic connectivity. Strong demand resulting from international companies that have expanded into Ireland and a rapidly improving local economy are both key driving forces for the development. The new data centre will aim to attract customers from the digital media, online retail, online gaming, payments and the financial sectors.
Maurice Mortell, VP of emerging markets and managing director of TelecityGroup Ireland, said the company has noticed an increase in demand from customers for high capacity, diverse and low latency connectivity, particularly to the United States.
“It was this high demand for TelecityGroup data centres in Ireland that drove our major expansion in Ireland in 2011. Since this expansion just over three years ago, our business in Ireland has grown considerably. This new Dub 4 data centre is further testament of this success.
“Our centre will offer a high number of connectivity providers and will employ a large engineering team on a 24/7 basis to monitor and maintain the data centre and provide a continuous high level of service. We are confident that the resilient power and diverse connectivity options provided by our four data centres plays a key role in attracting global enterprise to Ireland, bringing with it more jobs and investment,” Mortell concluded.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/02/24/fourth-telecitygroup-data-centre-create-ten-new-dublin-jobs/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/TelecityGroup-data-centre-1024x717.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/TelecityGroup-data-centre-300x300.jpgNewsDublin,ICT,jobs
