Switzerland's new role in the Datacentre Market Switzerland has long been known as a safe place to keep your money. Now it's becoming the ideal location for storing data. Offshore providers like Artmotion are leading the way.
SWITZERLAND, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Switzerland has long been famous for its discreet, trustworthy banks. True, bank secrecy has come under fire around the world in the wake of the global economic crisis – and the Alpine nation has not escaped. However, Swiss banking is unlikely to disappear any time soon.
Benefits you can bank on
Tough bank secrecy laws – based on a deep-seated respect for privacy – are only one of the reasons behind the strength of Switzerland's financial industry. The country's political neutrality, economic stability, and rule of law are all key factors. Add productive, skilled workers, advantageous tax rates and low environmental risk, and you can understand why the world has long kept its valuables under lock and key in Zurich and Geneva.
From offshore banking to offshore hosting
Today, mission-critical data and applications are many companies' most precious assets. Safeguarding them from accidents, intruders, and environmental disasters is vital. And – for the reasons just noted – what better place to do that than Switzerland?
The host with the most
Artmotion is a case in point. Its twin data centres near Zurich – one of them underground – are equipped with the latest technology and the ultimate in security, ensuring maximum privacy. Its state-of-the-art, efficiently managed infrastructure is as reliable as a Swiss watch, enabling it to offer a 99.9 per cent network uptime guarantee. And its situation in the middle of Europe allows high-speed connections to major European and international providers (peering), for even greater redundancy.
"80 per cent of our customers are based outside Switzerland," explains Artmotion.eu founder Mateo Meier. The company's services are particularly sought after by businesses from the US and UK. Recent unrest in the Middle East has seen an influx of customers from that region, seeking a safe haven for their data. "We're expecting our robust growth to continue. Our international clients clearly appreciate the speed, stability and security of our offering," Meier notes.
Founded in 2000, Artmotion specialises in secure IT solutions located in Switzerland, with a focus on data centre and server offerings. The company's services attract an international clientele looking to benefit from Switzerland's central location, respect for confidentiality and tax advantages. Strong demand for these solutions has helped Artmotion record an annual growth rate of over 50 per cent.
