Below is an excerpt of the press release
The public cloud computing market is still in the early stages of adoption, with rapid growth forecasted in the upcoming years. IDC predicts the cloud market to grow at a compound annual rate of 22.8% each year, which is six times faster than the growth in the overall IT market. By 2018, IDC expects that cloud spending will account for half of software, server and storage spending growth.
Ireland has a burgeoning startup tech scene and many of the world’s leading tech companies are based there such as Google, Facebook and Etsy, as well as Irish talent like Foodcloud and Soundwave. Blacknight hope to attract interest for their PaaS from DevOps who want to have flexibility, security and a reliable cloud environment.
“Blacknight’s new Jelastic powered cloud will help give Irish and European developers and startups the flexibility and control they want without the dangers of unexpected overages. We chose to offer Jelastic over competing services because it combines best of breed technology with a truly unique platform allowing our customers to work faster and smarter. Also, Blacknight operates all of our hosted services through our in-house, green, data centre meaning that our customer’s data remains in Ireland,” said Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight Internet Solutions.
“Infrastructure flexibility, reduced total cost of ownership, and shortened time to market are just some of the main reasons to move to the cloud,” said Ruslan Synytsky, Jelastic CEO. “We are seeing pockets of huge innovation and demand in the Irish sector and our partnership with Blacknight will support this.”
