New data centres business, Rockolo, launched
A specialised data centres services business, Rockolo, was formally launched today. Rockolo will conduct its business separate to, and at arm’s length from, its parent Company, Gibtelecom. Operating since the start of 2017, today’s announcement is timed to coincide with the week of the annual egaming summit being held in Gibraltar.
“The creation of Rockolo and its running of what used to be Gibtelecom’s data centre business is part of an internal restructuring of the group” said Tim Bristow, Chief Executive Officer of Gibtelecom. “Having a separate entity dedicated to the provisioning of data centre services will allow for a greater focus and specialisation on what is a highly demanding and technology dependent business”. Adrian Moreno, a director of the new Company, added that “Rockolo can better tailor its products to meet customers’ evolving needs and requirements, including rolling out new services and other facilities in due course.”
Daniel Hook, Rockolo’s Data Centres’ Manager added “customers who were previously being provided data centre hosting services by Gibtelecom have been informed that these are now being served by Rockolo Limited, under the same terms. With the launch of our new data centre at the recently inaugurated World Trade Center, Rockolo now has some 1600 m2 of facilities at two locations in different parts of Gibraltar, providing customers with much sought after geographical redundancy. All the data centres have strict data security standards, are monitored round the clock and have substantial back-up electrical power and diverse communications links.”
