Weeks Financial Cloud Group Plc on Wednesday announced the addition of three new data centers in international locations – Singapore, London, and Paris.

With this, the firm, providing cloud computing and connectivity services to financial markets, has now expanded its international network to a total of 15 data center locations worldwide.

Commenting on the development, Gordon McArthur, CEO of Weeks, said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of these new locations, chosen as they have proved to be desirable to our clients and partners.”

Although the company already had data centers in London and Singapore, the new data center in France is the first one in the country.

The announcement also detailed that the latest data center in Singapore, which is also the second in the city-state, is located aEquinoxquinix SG1 data center, while the European centers are in LondEquinoxquinix LD8 and aEquinoxquinix PA3 data center in Paris.

Focusing on seamless client experience

Per the company, the locations were selected strategically based on the increasing client demand and also on initial client deployments.

Last September, the company launched an automated backup service for its dedicated servers. Though initially deployed only in London, the company had plans to roll out the service for its internationally located servers as well.

“One of our goals at IPO was for significant geographical expansion, and I am delighted that we can deliver this advantage to our customers, having grown from nine to 15 locations since that time. By continuing to increase our global presence, we open up greater hosting and connectivity opportunities for our growing number of clients, ” McArthur added.

Meanwhile, by the end of last year, the company secured two major contracts, one with a global financial markets technology provider and another with a cloud-based payments solution provider, Finance Magnates reported.
