Interoute cloud platform awarded Managed Service Solution of the Year at 2015 European IT and Software Excellence Awards

Interoute’s leading SaaS enablement model earns industry plaudit


London, 27th March 2015 - Interoute, owner operator of Europe’s largest cloud services platform, today announced that its innovative cloud solution strategy centred around the Interoute Virtual Data Centre has been named Managed Service Solution of the Year at the 2015 European IT and Software Excellence Awards. At the award ceremony held in London on Wednesday 25th March, Interoute was named winner of the competitive category on the back of its successful track record of supporting software companies in driving towards all things ‘as a Service.’


The expansion of the Interoute Virtual Data Centre platform globally allows software companies to realise their ambition, whether national, regional or global. Interoute has helped software vendors and developers to deliver successful SaaS strategies, understanding and addressing their unique challenges and requirements around maintaining uptime, management, recovery and SLAs.


One such project saw Interoute support manufacturing systems provider, Mestec, to adopt a SaaS strategy that provides a more affordable OPEX-based delivery model for its customers. Supported by a highly resilient and scalable cloud platform, managed services and industry recognised certifications, Interoute enabled the company to save close to £100,000 in up-front costs, increase customer acquisition by 400%, while offering 99.9% availability.


Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, comments: “Interoute has a long history of partnering with software vendors to deliver their SaaS strategy. Interoute’s combination of a global distributed computing platform with the Interoute Virtual Data Centre, together with our tiered managed services provides a resilient high performance platform allowing software companies to start small and scale globally. Interoute understands that maintaining platform availability and performance 24/7/365 is a critical part of the success of our partners. At Interoute, we work hard to help organisations grow their businesses, so it’s great to have our cloud capabilities recognised in this way.”
