Istanbul, Turkey – 8 December 2016: Zenium has today announced that a major international banking and financial services organisation is now a customer at Istanbul One, Zenium’s leading-edge data center facility in Turkey. 

Following a comprehensive due diligence process, Zenium was appointed as a result of its best-practice protocols which were demonstrated across every element of its data center portfolio.  In the territory specifically, the customer found the bespoke, purpose built offering available at Zenium Istanbul One, and its unique carrier neutral business model, to be very compelling.  The fact that Zenium is compliant to Turkish banking regulatory authority (BDDK) rules was also a considerable factor in the final decision.

The customer now plans to migrate its primary Turkish data center operation to Istanbul One, the largest commercial carrier neutral international standards facility in the region, which means all core applications will be hosted, and powered, by Zenium.

“Importantly, this deal shows a significant shift in the attitude of the financial sector, previously dominated by a belief that only in-house data center facilities were viable,” said Franek Sodzawiczny, Founder and CEO at Zenium.  “Interestingly, the selection process focused as much on our commercial plans as our technical best-practices, which suggests to me that establishing strong, long term business relationships between a customer and their data center partner is increasingly desirable. The volume and nature of this agreement is testament to the level of trust that this banking and financial services organisation has placed in us, as well as showing the highest levels of confidence in us to deliver.” 

Comprising three self-contained, purpose-designed buildings, Istanbul One offers 12,000 sq m of high specification technical space with active / active 34.5 kV dual redundant power supplies, and ultra-low PUE’s. It was built with resilience in mind and is earthquake resistant, meeting the highest level of earthquake code as well as incorporating an array of energy efficiencies.
