IXEurope co-founder and CEO to present at leading datacenter industry forum in London, UK
London — March 14, 2005 — IXEurope, Europe's fastest growing specialist datacentre services group, today announced that Guy Willner, co-founder and CEO will be presenting at the 2nd annual Datacentres Europe Conference to be held in London, UK from 21st to 23rd March, 2006.
along with Michael Winterson, IXEurope VP of International Sales and Marketing, he will be showing how the datacentre industry is changing the fundamentals of the IT services and Internet infrastructure market in Europe. The main part of Guy's presentation will look at how Managed Services companies can work with Datacenter service providers to build resilient platforms and access a dynamic marketplace within these DCs. He will also look at what business models should be adopted, and how competitive differentiation can be truly achieved, specifically when targeting enterprise customers.
Michael Winterson will be presenting the latest market views on how peering is evolving and how the exchange model is beginning to move into the enterprise and media markets.
IXEurope is a major player in the provision of datacentre services and hosting infrastructure in Europe, with some of the most highly specified facilities available in the market. Since its first IXDatacentre opened in 1999 the company's key differentiator has been its focus on service and operations quality. This has paid significant dividends - in 2005 just over 40% of the company's client base came direct from Enterprise and from major outsourcers, spread across its ten IXDatacentres in France, UK, Germany and Switzerland.
