The global footprint of our cloud infrastructure partners is expanding, and Qbox Elasticsearch deployments are expanding along with it.
Continuing their year-long $1.2 billion investment, IBM Softlayer has expanded to Paris. Amazon Web Services has likewise expanded to Frankfurt. Both locations expand our Qbox footprint in Europe from three (London, Amsterdam, Dublin) to five.
Crucially, two major country-level population centers, France and Germany, get their first data center. As data sovereignty in a Post-Snowden world becomes a more scrutinized aspect of the cloud movement, we have heard more customers asking for this. The new locations are available now, and you can create a cluster today.
