Reader's Pick

To increase the presence of Cloud business in Europe, Alibaba on Monday announced that “It has opened the two new data centers in U.K.”

The new facilities, both in London, are the first in the UK to be made available to the Chinese technology giant, providing their business customers in the region around the clock with security and technical support, as well as real-time monitoring.

A spokesman for Alibaba Cloud said, “the move was part of the expansion of the cloud division in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).”

“As part of our commitment to further expand into Europe and the EMEA region, we are introducing two additional availability zones in addition to our existing locations in Frankfurt and Dubai,” said the spokesperson.

“Our choice of location is driven by fast-growing consumer demand in the UK.”

Alibaba said, “the advantage of having two data centers in one location is the ability to recover or maintain the critical IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster.”

“The United Kingdom is one of the fastest growing European markets for Alibaba Cloud, and many of our customers are in key verticals such as retail, finance, media, education, and research, and logistics,” the Alibaba spokesperson said.

” And We are also working with many global and local partners to make sure we are offering best-in-class technologies, services and consulting to customers,” it added.

Although the company did not quote a size of investment it is going to make in U.K., nor the how many number of jobs to be created from this, the spokesperson said: “We are rapidly growing in the European market and we are always looking for good talents to join our team.”

With the launch of this two new data-center, Alibaba’s cloud unit has 52 data center zones across 19 different regions and plans on expanding further.
