Increased Capacity Enables a Future-Proof Network for Cloud Expansion

SUMMIT, NJ & DUBLIN, IRELAND – June 7, 2011 – Hibernia Atlantic, the organisation responsible for the deployment of the ‘Project Kelvin’ high speed, diverse network, announces today that Novosco, Ireland’s leading provider of virtual and cloud IT infrastructure and services, chose Hibernia Atlantic for its fast, diverse connectivity within Northern Ireland and throughout the rest of Europe. This increased capacity enables a ‘future-proof‘ network for Novosco’s virtualization and cloud expansion.

As a robust and innovative virtual infrastructure company, Novosco specializes in integrating emerging technologies into its customer solutions. With the addition of Hibernia’s secure connectivity, Novosco has increased its capacity via a diverse ring topology throughout Europe, including routes linking Dublin, Belfast and London, as well as extending its national coverage by using Hibernia’s network to access key British Telecom exchanges.

“Hibernia’s cutting-edge network, coupled with its flexible and cost-effective solutions, allows us to future proof our IT backbone, making it capable for the rapid expansion envisaged in the cloud and virtual space,” states Patrick McAliskey, Managing Director of Novosco.  ”Novosco’s CloudStream network will, for the first time, bring together the Northern Ireland Department of Enterprise Trade & Industry’s (DETI) flagship Kelvin project along with next generation broadband. This will provide Northern Ireland with the fastest and lowest latency fibre and Ethernet services, both nationally and internationally, and provide Northern Ireland business customers with the fastest direct broadband connectivity to European and North American markets.”

“By leveraging Hibernia’s rapid deployment of robust infrastructure throughout Europe, Novosco is able to meet the demand for its first-rate cloud service offering, as well as plan for future growth,” states Fergus Innes, Vice President Sales EMEA for Hibernia Atlantic. “With Hibernia’s successful delivery and operation of networks throughout Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Europe, our team continues to be Novosco’s strategic partner in the region.”
