DataCloud Honors the Founders for Their Innovation and Excellence
Monaco, June 7, 2017 – Charles-Antoine Beyney and Antoine Boniface, the co-founders of Etix Everywhere, received the Data Center Leadership Award yesterday during the 10th annual DataCloud ceremony and dinner. The award was presented by a panel of 20 savvy experts of the data center and cloud industry. Offering a holistic approach to the data center market by providing services for the financing, design, construction and operation of smart infrastructures, the two founders of Etix Everywhere were chosen from among 24 leaders in this sector.
The Jury’s Choice
“Charles-Antoine Beyney and Antoine Boniface have demonstrated extraordinary high levels of energy, rolling out data centers internationally in a remarkably short period of time,” declares Gerd J. Simon, Head Judge. “Using a unique ‘Co-Investment’ model, a model where ownership of infrastructure is equally shared, they have inspired many international experts to join the group to deliver nothing less than ‘best in class’ solutions.”
“Charles-Antoine Beyney and Antoine Boniface are innovative thought leaders and educators. They have created solutions in Africa as well in South America, which are revolutionary in terms of speeding up data center roll out, connections and access, thus helping to overcome the digital divide,” concludes Mr. Simon.
Etix Everywhere’s Global Expansion Since 2013
Etix Everywhere’s first data center saw the light of day in June 2013. Since then, the company has built six data centers and eight additional facilities are currently under construction in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South America. Projects are currently under advanced negotiations in twenty countries. To support this rapid expansion, Etix Everywhere has now reached 100 employees.
Etix Everywhere’s strength lies in its ability to innovate and disrupt its own market. The company endeavors to constantly reinvent every aspect of its business:
- Etix has developed its own technical design, a scalable architecture that can be deployed in less than 16 weeks, all over the world.
- The company goes beyond traditional financing solutions by offering a co-investment model, sharing investment, resources and profits with local joint-venture partners.
- In terms of business development, the company has an agile growth strategy, exploring Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, and developing markets where its competitors are not represented.
- Etix Everywhere is changing the game in the data center industry: 30 percent of its staff are devoted to Etix Labs, an R&D pool of creativity and technology. The goal is to create ‘lights-out’ data centers.
All hardware and software innovations are currently confidential, but the first one will be launched during the last quarter of 2017.
“This award is a wonderful recognition of our people’s work and their commitment towards leadership and innovation, especially for the 10th anniversary of DataCloud,” comments Antoine Boniface. “We are proud of the work that we have done and we are ready to respond to upcoming challenges. We have set ourselves ambitious goals, and we fully expect to achieve them.”
