Blue Chip Invests £1 Million in Additional Datacentre Capacity in Partnership with Vodafone

23rd July 2014


Blue Chip has expanded its industry-leading, nationwide Cloud capability and Cloud services offering, investing a further £1 million in the best available datacentre capacity and infrastructure at Vodafone’s prominent Tier 3 datacentres in Leeds and Uxbridge.

Boasting high-capacity, high-availability, first-class connectivity and built-in resilience, Vodafone’s datacentres give Blue Chip customers the highest level of security and most robust server, security and storage infrastructure available. The £1 million investment in this exceptional standard of infrastructure is further demonstration of Blue Chip’s commitment to a fast-growing national customer base, as more and more businesses move away from strictly on premise solutions to Cloud infrastructure and services.

Anthony Green, sales and marketing director at Blue Chip explains: “This expansion is part of our ongoing investment programme to provide customers with complete, high-end and secure Cloud or hybrid Cloud/on-premise solutions - a strategy that has already set Blue Chip apart with customer uptake more than three times the anticipated level for 2013/2014. The addition of datacentres in Uxbridge and Leeds has doubled our datacentre locations from two to four and added two significant IaaS Platforms. This will enable us to fulfil the extraordinary demand from customers wishing to subscribe to our industry-leading, Cloud-based Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Cloud-based Business Solutions.”

Blue Chip’s renowned heritage as a traditional Solutions and Consultancy provider with vast experience in providing on-premise infrastructure is key to the company’s Cloud Solutions success. Having developed this expertise over two decades, provisioning solid Cloud solutions in tandem with customer needs was a natural step for the IT specialist. 

Investment in Vodafone’s datacentres means Blue Chip offers Cloud services that exceed the industry norm, with industry-leading, built-in resilience and connectivity for customer peace of mind. In addition, certain Cloud Business Services provided by Blue Chip are replicated to, and provided from Blue Chip’s purpose-built datacentre at its headquarters in Poole. Importantly this includes Data Recovery (DR) via its award-winning Backup and Disaster Recovery solution, SecureVault.
