Global Data Center to double its facility in Herzliya
22 January, 2018
Global Data Center operates a secured underground data center facility in Hertzliya, Israel. The CEO Lasman: "The rapid growth of information has created a huge need for IT infrastructures"
Israel’s Global Data Center is doubling its Herzliya data center facility from 2,250 square meters to 4,500 square meters. The company announced that it would invest tens of millions of Shekels to complete the expansion in the first half of 2018. Global Data Center operates a secured underground data center facility in Hertzliya built in compliance with global standards. Doubling the data center’s area joins other measures taken during the past year, including the tripling of the business continuity space and providing customers a quick move to work at the Herzliya facility in an emergency.
Global Data Center was founded by Moshe Lasman in 2013 in cooperation with and the financial backing of Viola Group and Leon Recanati’s Glenrock Investments. Lasman previously served as the head of the Outsourcing Department at IBM Israel and head of Global Services at HP Israel. The data center in Herzliya serves public and private companies in the insurance, financial, and technology sectors.
Critical Mass of Data
Among them: Harel Insurance Investments and Financial Services Ltd., Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings Ltd., IBI Investment House Ltd., Israel Chemicals Ltd., FMR Computers & Software and technology leaders such as ECI Telecom Ltd., Infinidat Ltd., Varonis Systems Inc., Zerto Ltd. and SolarEdge Technologies Inc. “The current data center has almost used up its potential space,” said Moshe Lasman. “The rapid growth of information has created a need for physical spaces in Israel to host IT infrastructures for companies with a critical mass of data. Some have already reserved space in the new section which will open in a few months.” Lasman added: “IT managers prefer to rent an external site and benefit from scalability, improved cash flow by converting a capital expense into an operating expense.
“We offer high data accessibility, physical and digital security, energy savings, comprehensive business disaster recovery and more. All cloud services need to host the hardware on which the data resides at a particular physical space. From this point, the path to data centers’ success is short.” The site provides hosting services for IT operations units, full business continuity and disaster recovery, as well as on-site and remote back-up, cloud computing services, on-demand control and operating services, andsmart hands services.
