Taurus Group announces that as of 1st January 2019, they have become a technology partner to the Dutch Data Center Association (DDA), the leading trade organization of data centers in The Netherlands. The partnership represents an opportunity to assist DDA members in the implementation of infrastructure and services in a rapidly evolving data center landscape.
The technology partner network within the DDA includes many leading companies ranging from energy and hardware to consultancy. As the trend in the data center industry shows more specialised services to attract and retain their digital customers, Taurus Group believes it is a necessity to provide quality hardware and solutions to the DDA data center members. From a set of hardware vendors to server level solutions, datacenters can benefit from a “menu card” of services available from Taurus. This menu includes bare metal servers, software defined infrastructure (storage & networking) and solutions for supporting machine learning and AI.
Taurus Group is committed to help the DDA in its objective to stimulate the growth of the digital economy in The Netherlands and to promote the Dutch data center market globally. The Netherlands is already considered a market leader for digital infrastructure due to its excellent connectivity. The DDA is making large strides to increase its visibility on a European level. This is contributing to rapid growth for the data center industry in The Netherlands.
Stijn Grove director of the Dutch Data Center Associaton is enthusiastic about the future of this partnership. Stijn Grove: “The partnership with Taurus Group is a valuable addition to the DDA network. Taurus Group is growth driven and has a strong focus on personal care towards their clients. This complies well with DDA’s own vision and will be an added value to the data centers in our network.”
