Netcetera launches new Global Cloud Hosting in 43 locations worldwide

Choosing a Cloud Server is never going to be an easy decision to make. Not only do you have to consider the cost but there are so many other key points that need to be considered prior to deciding on what the best option is for your business. One of which is where your Cloud is located.
Netcetera is one of Europe’s leading cloud hosting companies and we can now provide a Cloud Hosting solution that spans 43 locations around the world 17 more than Azure and 8 more than AWS, giving businesses who want to use a cloud based server one of the largest global platforms available.

We understand that clients who demand leading cloud performance and high availability for their applications want to locate these applications close to their operational base with the added benefits of an improved end user experience through low latency and fault tolerance. Another added benefit is having a truly scalable on demand server to cope with the demands of any business.

Driven by the global economy and new markets Netcetera has dramatically increased its global presence to help customers and partners meet their own objectives of providing applications close to their user base. Very simply you will now be able to choose your locations and still only have to deal with one supplier regardless of where you need to be based.


Another benefit of choosing to host with Netcetera is to mitigate against the risk of downtime or a complete IT systems failure. Although rare, failures can occur that affect the availability of instances that are in the same location. Netcetera can now help you mitigate this risk through offering multiple site locations across the globe for your cloud servers.

The benefits of choosing to host with Netcetera are considerable:

  • Truly global locations
  • Exceptional support – 24/7 fast response
  • Environment focused – ISO accredited
  • Highest levels of reliability – 99.9% uptime SLA
  • Low latency – super fast connectivity
  • Cost effective – without compromise
  • Improved end user experience – increase sales and productivity
  • Unrivaled backup and recovery
  • Mitigate risk

With new markets opening across the globe leading to an ever increasing number of business opportunities it makes sense for businesses to fully utilise the benefits of a platform that will increase operational speeds and reliability. Our new cloud hosting service is available for businesses of all sizes to use and is perfect for a wide variety of applications from a cloud website to a fully hosted cloud IT solution.

Netcetera can now leverage a truly global network of datacenters to maintain availability in a cost-effective manner providing our clients with the highest levels of service no matter where in the world they operate from.

Shockproof Your Business Today With planB

It’s never too late to prepare a planB.

London suffered another emergency situation on the 26th July 2016 which resulted in hundreds of office workers being evacuated as emergency services closed several areas around the London Wall. The emergency was caused by a huge gas leak which has caused the police to cordon off a large area and has resulted in many office premises to be closed down for the day. A spokesman stated that the road would have to be dug up to allow for the gas to be removed and that the area could be cordoned off for a long period of time.

This isn’t the first time such an incident has occurred and yet many businesses within the City still do not have a Disaster Plan in place.

Yesterday’s incident showed how important it is to have a planB in place. The cost of downtime is huge and with many businesses within the City operating on a global basis even the smallest amount of downtime can be catastrophic. It’s no longer a matter of, if, rather than when, will an event take place that could risk the functionality of your business?

Here at Netcetera we specialise in providing enterprise class disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for businesses big and small.

From within our modern zero carbon datacentre we can ensure that an emergency doesn’t have to become a disaster.

Our IT Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions are second to none. With several options available built around your own requirements. We offer some of the most aggressive robust solutions available on the market.

From continuous data backup for cloud and dedicated servers  along with daily backups and cloud storage options and our modern onsite business recovery centre, we have your business covered to survive any incident.

So if yesterday’s incident has made you think about what you have in place, there’s never been a better time to get in touch to see how we can protect your business from disaster with planB or one of our many other leading IT recovery solutions.

Shockproof Your Business Today With The Most Resilient Disaster Recovery Available

The Only Thing Harder Than Planning For An Emergency Is Explaining Why You Didn’t!

Over the last few months we’ve been working hard to make Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity more cost effective and simple to set up. Unfortunately it’s not a subject that everyone enjoys reading about but at the same time it’s something that many businesses cannot do without.

Hopefully your business doesn’t fit in with any of the below but if it does we feel we have the answer to any concerns you might have.

Although the statistics may appear to be on the negative side, it doesn’t have to be like this for your business.

  • 80% of companies have not developed crisis management for IT coverage to support business continuity, keeping the business functioning effectively.
  • 25% of financial institutions have no business continuity plan.
  • 19% of financial institutions who have business continuity plans have not tested them in the last five years.
  • 80% of business without a well structured recovery plan are forced to shut within 12 months of a flood or fire (information courtesy of the London Chamber of Commerce).

Having a well structured plan in place can shockproof your business against many of the events that could, under normal circumstances prove catastrophic for your business.

Flooding, storm damage, power cuts, human error and computer viruses are common place events that can adversely affect the functionality of a business. These are just a few of the many unexpected reasons a business might have to cease trading. Small and medium sized businesses are particularly vulnerable if they don’t have a contingency plan in place when disaster strikes.

Having a Business Contingency Strategy is proven to protect your business:

  • Minimise interruption of normal business operations.
  • Limit disruption and damage.
  • Minimise any financial and reputational repercussions.
  • Establish alternative means of operations.
  • Train personnel in emergency procedures.
  • Provide smooth and rapid service restoration.

Quite simply, the question we’re asking businesses to think about is “how does your plan stack up?” Could your business continue to function without an office or IT system?

You’re probably now thinking “do the costs add up and is it really worth it?” The following example might help. This is what occurred when Sabre Travel’s IT system crashed for 3 hours.

Sabre Travel – Sabre operate a booking system used by 300 of the world’s biggest airlines. The travel world was thrown into turmoil when their systems went down.. From a customer’s perspective thousands faced long delays, cancellations and couldn’t book flights. From a business perspective there was the loss of income due to customers inability to book flights and a negative impact on brand image.

The outage is estimated to have cost Virgin Airlines between £6.5 and £10 million pounds.

On a much smaller scale, a business with a yearly revenue of £250,000 can expect costs of £147.00 per hour, or £1,176.00 per day from down-time. These figures do not include the costs of reputational damage and potential fines if data is lost due to an incident.

When looking at those costs, can a SMB survive for example a week of downtime resulting from flooding? Disasters such as this don’t only carry financial costs, but also reputational damage. Furthermore, the disaster may lead to a loss of data which can result in hefty penalties from regulatory bodies.

On a positive note, choosing a solution that is both cost effective and meets your requirements has just been made a whole lot easier. Just ask yourself the questions below and if any of them make you feel a little uncomfortable the planning process has already begun.

  • When did you last try restoring your business critical data?
  • Are you confident that in the event of a disaster recovery that you can get your IT system back-up seamlessly?
  • If your office became unavailable what would happen to you clients and staff?
  • Could you survive for more than a week without IT and an office?  
  • Does your insurance cover your business for loss of data and income?
  • Do you know how much your business would lose as a result of 1 week of downtime?
