We are happy to announce that Simtech-IT has signed on as the latest AeroFS reseller in Europe. Under the agreement, Simtech-IT will be able to both resell and host the AeroFS private cloud file sharing service.

We are seeing rapid traction by European companies in private cloud technologies. This is explained by two trends:

  1. European companies become more sensitive to data security and privacy breaches
  2. European laws make it more and more difficult for companies to use public cloud technologies. For example, organizations throughout the UK are required to comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA) and face harsh penalties if they fail to do so.

Traditionally, companies using private cloud are large organizations with dedicated support teams. As more diverse companies are interested in private cloud, they turn to companies like Simtech-IT to fully support their need. By providing file-sharing tools across multiple platforms including OpenStack, VMWare and VirtualBox, we allow companies to quickly deploy and scale a secure file-sharing tool without the difficulty associated with typical private cloud solutions.

We are very happy that Simtech has elected to work with us. Our customer base in Europe continues to grow, and with this partnership we?ll now be able to provide our customer base throughout the region with a more hands on approach to deploying and maintaining our Private Cloud service.

If you are based in Europe and you are interested in providing collaboration tools while keeping your data secure, please contact Simtech-IT.
