Q and A with Data Center Post’s Contributing Editor, Kathy Xu

Data Center POST, Kathy Xu (DCP-KX) Question:  What is Host in Ireland and what is its mission?

Host in Ireland, Garry Connolly (HOST IN IRELAND-GC) Answer: Host in Ireland is an industry-led initiative designed to raise awareness of Ireland as a premium digital asset hosting location. Our goal is to change and shape global industry perceptions through the provisioning of timely and accurate information. With the support of a growing team of partners, Host in Ireland has harnessed the “power of the collective,” fostering an environment of co-opetition where competing companies and organizations come together to achieve common goals through cooperation and collaboration.

Host in Ireland is sustained by the “5 Ps” – Policy, People, Pedigree, Pipes and Power. Representing the most important aspects of digital asset hosting, Ireland’s integration of these five key elements provides a structured foundation for companies of all sizes and markets. With an understanding of how to meet their requirements across the board, Ireland has the ability to offer companies the support they need when hosting their digital assets in the EMEA region.
