Workfront Plans to Open Two European Data Centers

By Clayton Hamshar

Project management specialist Workfront’s enterprise work management solutions have become popular beyond North America, and are gaining an especially strong following in Europe. That’s prompted the company to open two data centers to exclusively serve the region. Workfront — formerly known as AtTask — opened the new facilities in Ireland and Germany in order to provide a more fluid and reliable experience for its diverse range of marketing, IT and other enterprise customers.

“Workfront is growing at rapid rates globally, with a particularly fast growth-rate happening in our European markets,” said Steven ZoBell, Workfront’s Chief Product and Technology Officer, commenting on the company’s reasoning behind opening the two new data centers.

Customers will now have the ability to process and store their data directly within the European region, which eliminates redundant operations for the company while substantially improving security capabilities. It’s especially important for companies to maintain data integrity as breaches become a bigger threat, a mission that’s even more complicated considering the unending growth of this data. Furthermore, customers can enjoy a more high-performance experience and expanded opportunities for scalability thanks to Workfront’s more localized facilities.

“The new data centers support our continued growth in these areas and reaffirm our commitment to keeping our customer data secure, all while providing them with a world-class work management solution,” said ZoBell.

The company’s Global Operations team will monitor both locations in addition to the two existing data centers located in the United States. Customers will be able to take full advantage of Workfront’s expansive toolset for managing the full lifecycle of work while encouraging collaboration among team members and providing a full contextual analysis of the work being done. The two new data centers are now up and running; Workfront customers in Europe can immediately take advantage of the solution’s speedy performance and assurance of data integrity.
