Dimension Data announced this week that it has added four new data centers in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and South America in order to address growing demand of its Managed Cloud Platform.

Dimension Data’s MCP new locations are Ashburn, Virginia, Melbourne, Australia, London, UK, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. All of the new locations will be live by January 2014.

With the new locations, Dimension Data has a total of 11 sites for its managed cloud platform. Existing MCP locations include San Jose, Calif. and Ashburn, Va., as well as Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Sydney, Australia; Johannesburg, South Africa; Toyko, Japan, which it added in June,and Hong Kong, China. Having such a range of locations allows for Dimension Data’s cloud to meet country-specific data requirements, which can vary considerably depending on which region of the world it is in.

“The addition of these four key MCP locations adds capacity to the United States, Australia and Europe, where our client base is growing rapidly and requires multiple cloud data centers to support business continuity, backup and replication within the region,” Steve Nola, CEO of Dimension Data’s cloud business unit said. “Sao Paulo, as Dimension Data’s first MCP in South America, will create availability for global enterprises to locate data in this region.”

Dimension Data offers private and public cloud solutions at each of its locations, with SLAs, and multiple layers of security.

Earlier this year, Dimension Data launched Cloud Backup, an optional backup and recovery service available as an add-on to its cloud service.
