Maurice Mortell- headshot An interview with Maurice Mortell, Executive Committee member for Host in Ireland and the Vice President Developing Markets for TelecityGroup & Country Manager for Ireland. Click here to read the interview in its entirety.
Q: What’s your role in the Irish hosting landscape? Maurice Mortell: We provide secure operational environments for organisations’ IT & telecoms equipment. TelecityGroup is the most highly connected data centre provider in Ireland – so as such our data centres are network hubs, or enabling environments, of the digital economy.   Really our role is to provide the optimum environment for 24/7 availability for mission-critical IT infrastructure
Q: What is the value of Host in Ireland for TelecityGroup? MM: It brings great value. It is fantastic to have an industry group for all providers to collaborate. It sends a strong message to overseas companies that we share information and knowledge for a collective benefit here in Ireland. The industry needs to promote itself. It’s not just about new business, Host in Ireland also lobbies on behalf of the industry, which works well for us. It’s also an evolving process with hopefully even better developments to come.
