IDrive Compute has expanded globally by adding a data centre in Dublin, Ireland. This will enable developers and businesses based in Europe to host multiple virtual instances on an infrastructure loaded with powerful physical servers and robust hardware resources, all managed off-premise.
After receiving plenty of international demand for the service, the company added the Dublin edge centre to ensure a faster response for European users when collecting, analysing and parsing through data, instead of directing it to a centralised cloud or server, solidifying efficient operations that promote a high-performance business ecosystem. This is the first IDrive Compute edge centre based outside of the U.S.
The company selected Ireland as its next data centre location due to the country’s renewable energy supply as well as the low-cost availability of cooling options, making it a desirable location. Renewable energy currently accounts for over 40 per cent of Ireland’s energy mix, with that figure predicted to rise to 70 per cent by 2030 according to a recent report from SEAI.
“Ireland is one of Europe’s most rapidly rising data centre clusters,” Raghu Kulkarni, CEO at IDrive, said. “The Dublin data centre market is home to all of the major colocation carriers, making it a perfect entry point for IDrive into the European market.”
With IDrive Compute, businesses and developers can create and manage multiple virtual machines, run projects with little to no latency, schedule backups for the instances, take real-time snapshots, and add more space to them with block storage. The VPS infrastructure lets users accommodate computing projects of any scale and size.
IDrive Compute offers pay-as-you-use pricing with on-demand scalability, which offers businesses the ability to scale their computing infrastructure as needed. Pricing remains consistent across all regions, with no hidden charges for specific regions.
