Alongside its sponsors: Citadel100, Interxion, Dataplex, Viatel, Digital Realty, TelecityGroup, INEX, GeoNetworks, Hibernia Networks, CBRE/Norland and Comsys, Host in Ireland will leverage this inaugural event as an introduction to educate the U.S. market about digital asset hosting opportunities in Ireland. The event will include an introduction of industry research by 451 Research about why Ireland is the optimum location for digital asset hosting as well as a discussion on why leading U.S. digital asset companies have invested in Ireland by Host in Ireland’s President, Garry Connolly. Host in Ireland is sustained by five key benefits sought by companies needing to host their valuable digital assets: policy, people, pedigree, pipes and power. The combination of these benefits: affordable power and renewable energy; ample connectivity to Europe and America; redundant network and bandwidth capacity; mature, local data center market made up of leading Ireland, U.S., UK and European brands; tax benefits; talented workforce; and an attractive, pro-business structure implemented by Ireland, validates why leading U.S. companies have called Ireland the home of their digital assets for over five decades. “We are excited to introduce Host in Ireland as the industry authority on digital asset hosting in Ireland,” says Garry Connolly, President of Host in Ireland. “An established stronghold for Europe’s data communication assets, Ireland combines a reputation for quality services with optimal power, pipes, people, pedigree and policy – proving time and time again that it is the optimum setting for digital asset hosting. Host in Ireland serves as a conduit of information for companies to gain clarity on why Ireland is best for them to create a lasting digital footprint in this global market.” To RSVP for the Host in Ireland launch event, click here.
