Boosting its cloud infrastructure in Europe, Terremark has increased its cloud infrastructure capacity by deploying a node of its Enterprise Cloud Managed Edition at its data center in London. Terremark, a Verizon company, said the additional capacity would support customers with growing requirements related to the 2012 Olympics, which commence in London in late July.

“The ability to quickly and efficiently realize the benefits of enterprise cloud services has been of particular interest to businesses in Europe this year, as they are faced with business continuity concerns in connection with the London 2012 Olympics,” said Kerry Bailey, Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ chief marketing office. “It’s important for us to invest to support our customers where they need us – this is obviously timely in terms of London 2012, but is also part of our focusing on investing in infrastructure to support our customers’ future business growth.”

The London data center facility is part of Terremark’s network of nearly 50 data centers around the world engineered to provide colocation and cloud technology for mission-critical applications.

“This investment is testament to our focus on architecting a global enterprise cloud to help our customers transform their business operations,” said Nelson Fonseca, president of Terremark. “London is a crucial business hub for Terremark and Verizon, given the number of global multinationals with operations in the region. The expanded cloud capacity enables us to help our customers securely explore innovative new business models, which will help them to achieve their future business success.”

Terremark recently announced the deployment of a node of its Enterprise Cloud offering in its cloud-enabled data center in Denver, an expansion of its Network Access Point (NAP) in Brazil to serve customers who are expanding their operations in Latin America, and the expansion of the company’s NAP of Americas-Colombia facility. In Europe, the company launched the NAP of Amsterdam in September 2011.
