HP server technology provides improved performance, capacity to internet service provider

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP today announced that LeaseWeb, one of Europe’s largest internet hosting providers, has implemented HP ProLiant server technology in its data centers in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium, as well as at its newest facility in Virginia.

The new servers deliver increased performance and capacity to support rapid business growth.

Based in the Netherlands and founded in the attic of a house in 1997 with just a single server, LeaseWeb offers a global network that consists of eight data centers. The company offers high-quality hosting, cloud solutions and internet services to customers across the globe, priding itself on an uptime of 99.999 percent.

HP helps LeaseWeb extend global presence

LeaseWeb has already deployed more than 15,000 HP ProLiant servers across its data centers. With the opening of its new U.S. data center, and in response to increased customer demand for server outsourcing, the company is adding 5,700 HP ProLiant DL 120 G6 and HP ProLiant DL180 G6 servers to meet its burgeoning global workloads. The new HP ProLiant servers will provide the company with greater processing speed and significantly improved system operations.

The HP ProLiant DL server series are low-cost, high-capacity, storage-optimized servers that deliver high density for a variety of rack deployments and applications. The server installation will allow LeaseWeb to manage its extended IT environments for hosting, while improving its customer response time and overall satisfaction levels.

“As our business expands, so does our need to keep pace with user demands, as well as offer new services, while providing a fast, powerful and secure hosting environment,” said Con Zwinkels, managing director, LeaseWeb Netherlands. “HP ProLiant servers have increased our application performance and enabled faster time to solution to meet our business challenges while delivering improved operational efficiency.”
