Today we are thrilled to share the news that we have opened a fifth location in beautiful Málaga, in the southern region of Spain!
Jelastic now has offices in the USA, Ukraine, Russia, Australia and Spain since launching our cloud solution in 2011. In 2015, we are on a mission to continue active expansion of our private and public cloud services to the European market and the new location in Málaga makes these relationships even more accessible to European companies.
Below is an excerpt of the press release
Jelastic currently has public and private cloud partners in European locations such as Finland (Planeetta Internet), Germany (dogado), Sweden (Elastx), United Kingdom (Layershift, Centerprise and Lunacloud), France (Magic Online), the Netherlands (Hostnet and info.nl), Switzerland (innofield) and in Luxembourg (Telecom Luxembourg). Spain is now among these countries, not only as a partner location (GMV), but a new thriving headquarters for Jelastic’s European sector.
“Málaga is an entrepreneurial Smart City with a surrounding innovative ecosystem known as Málaga Valley which is known for its high-tech industry, its pilot projects, its national high-speed rail research center and its entrepreneurial spirit,” said Ruslan Synytsky, Jelastic CEO. “Given its low cost of living, high quality of life, excellent transportation infrastructure and its geographic location, Málaga offers a wealth of opportunities for the further economic development of Jelastic.”
The Invest in Andalucía team and the Málaga Open for Business team, collaborated with Jelastic from the beginning of their expansion project in Europe. They provided data, information, advice and key contacts for the decision on where to set up their new European headquarters.
“We are proud that Jelastic decided to join the ICT business community in Málaga,” said sources of Invest in Andalucía-Spain. “Jelastic identified Málaga as a highly competitive business location where they can boost their business in Spain, Europe and South America. They appreciated the local key success factors like the innovative environment, modern ICT infrastructure, international flight connectivity and not to forget the excellent quality of life.”
Ericsson, Oracle, Google, IBM, Accenture, Keysight Technologies, Telefonica, Huawei, Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), Raytheon, Fujitsu Ten, TDK-EPC and others have benefited from opening offices or expanding their teams in Málaga during the last 5 years, and Jelastic expects to see similar growth and success.
“As a leading cloud computing service platform provider, we are excited to welcome Jelastic to Málaga and to the Málaga Valley innovative ecosystem,” said Marc Sanderson, Director of International Economic Development, City of Málaga, Spain.
This week, Jelastic is exhibiting at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with the Skolkovo Foundation in Hall 6, Booth 6D60.
