GlobeeCom International Inc. partners with IXEurope to install its intercontinental hosting facilities
TROIS-RIVIERES, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ — GlobeeCom International Inc. (TSX Venture: GBC) is pleased to announce that as part of its intercontinental networking and hosting strategy, it has accepted the tenders submitted by the firm IXEurope. With its perspective of preparing its infrastructure today in order to meet tomorrow's needs, it is essential that GlobeeCom should select recognized and reliable partners.
IXEurope, the leading European company in the field of Web hosting of Internet information servers and telecommunications equipment, owns a number of highly secure centres in the UK, France, Germany, and Switzerland. Selecting Geneva as the location for its European hosting facilities was a strategic choice for GlobeeCom, since this international city is at the very heart of Europe. The presence of so many banks, both Swiss and expatriate, in this city does and has always encouraged the development of security in every sense of the word.
