OpenText Creates European Data Zone for Cloud

OpenText this week announced a fully-segregated and independent European Data Zone for the company’s Enterprise Managed Cloud Services operations.

Existing OpenText Cloud data centers in the Netherlands, the UK, and Germany will form the OpenText European Data Zone and provide complete IT operations, Disaster Recovery, and hands-on managed cloud services from within the EEA (European Economic Area).

With three key European Data Centers and staff located locally within the EEA, the new OpenText European Data Zone operates exclusively within Europe to ensure data from OpenText’s European customers will stay within Europe, to help meet their data sovereignty requirements.

“OpenText understands that compliance with European data privacy requirements is of paramount importance to our customers,” said Gary Weiss, senior vice president of Cloud Services at OpenText. “Secure, global information management with regional data centers is a cornerstone of our cloud strategy, and with the OpenText Cloud European Data Zone we are able to realize that strategy and further support our customer’s evolving needs.”

The new European Data Zone expands its capabilities to provide a fully segregated and independent European data zone for OpenText Enterprise Managed Cloud Services offerings, with complete network segregation of all hardware and access levels.

The OpenText Cloud processes over 18 billion transactions per year for more than 64,000 customers around the world.
