Micro Focus, one of the world’s largest enterprise software providers, has opened a new public cloud data centre in the UK. The data centre provides improved availability, security, and data sovereignty to UK customers, while boosting Micro Focus’ commitment to on-demand, as-a-service capabilities and flexibility of choice.

Ian Simmons, VP & GM UKI, Micro Focus, said: “As a company, we felt as though it was important to provide customers with an alternative public zone for their data to reside, outside of the EU but still within Western Europe.

“We have supplemented our public cloud offerings to ensure our customers’ needs are met and in addition to our cloud data center in Frankfurt. This UK data center reaffirms Micro Focus’ commitment to investing in the region.”

The launch of the new public cloud data centre aligns with Micro Focus’ ongoing strategy to move away from private data centre business. Working more closely with public cloud providers enhances availability, scalability, and breadth of services for Micro Focus customers. Additionally, with support from its CyberRes division, all of the company’s worldwide data centers are protected with the most advanced security standards. All of Micro Focus’ SaaS services are certified under ISO 27001 and SOC 2.

Micro Focus is one of the world’s largest enterprise software providers, focused on solving the IT dilemma—how to balance today’s needs with tomorrow’s opportunities. We deliver mission-critical technology and supporting services that help tens of thousands of customers worldwide manage core IT elements of their business.
