Pasporte extends managed datacentre operations

Pasporte has revealed plans to expand its UK operations to support growing demand for managed services.
Having brought its third datacentre online earlier this month, the managed services provider says it is undergoing rapid expansion following an increase in companies seeking datacentre facilities. All three of Pasporte’s datacentres are operated in association with Orange Business Services.
Gary Woodward, CEO of Pasporte, explains: “Companies are under increasing pressure to support exponential growth in data handling and the subsequent storage of data, and the adoption of bandwidth-heavy applications which require 24/7 support and disaster recovery.  Furthermore, the energy demands placed on organisations to support their data centre requirements means businesses are looking for ways to spread the cost of bills – shared managed services are an excellent way to share the load.”
Pasporte has also revealed today that it has been awarded, for the third consecutive year, Orange Business Services’ Partner of the Year 2007.
“Pasporte’s dependability in the mid-market continues to help us grow.  Their skills and technical expertise within the mid-market ensures our customers receive a high level of service,” says Andrew McFadzen, general manager, UK & Ireland at Orange Business Services.
