27 March 2023 Poland and the larger Central European region stand at an exciting point in their digital transformation. Just two years ago, Poland was well below the European Union average in cloud adoption. In 2018, the EU average for cloud adoption was 24% and in Poland, the average was just 11%. At the end of 2020, the EU average for cloud adoption had risen to 36%, and in Poland it was 24%. Even though we’re still behind the EU average, Poland’s cloud adoption rate has more than doubled in just two years. That represents a very attractive market growth and an exciting opportunity for service providers like us. HPE ProLiant Beyond.pl launched in Poland more than 16 years ago, in the very early days of the cloud. Back then, traditional telecom players dominated the market, providing data center services in almost monopolistic environments. The idea of cloud technologies was still new to the public and virtually nonexistent on the market. Beyond.pl was quick to innovate, and as a result we have found ourselves as a leader within the data center and colocation services industry. By 2016, our first data center had become too small for our client needs, so we decided to build a world-class facility on the outskirts of the city of Poznan. The location is significant, as Poznan is halfway between the capital cities of Berlin and Warsaw. From a connectivity perspective, round trip latency from Beyond.pl is below 11 milliseconds to key European markets (such as Frankfurt, Berlin, Warsaw, and Prague), making it a strategic location for customers looking to enter the rapidly growing Polish and greater Central European market. A new data center highlights the best we have to offer We invested in the quality of our infrastructure, building out top-level security. Up until September 2020, Beyond.pl Data Center 2 remained the only data center in the entire European Union to meet the strict ANSI/TIA-942 Rated 4 security rating. This allows us to guarantee the highest levels of availability of services to our customers with uptime above 99.995% (representing a maximum downtime of 26 minutes per year). And, actually, since commissioning in 2016, customers have experienced 100% uptime. Beyond.pl Data Center 2 confirmed with the ANSI/TIA-942 Rated 4 certificate. See more...
