Japanese cloud firm opens in EU

Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ) and its consolidated subsidiary in London announced the immediate release of the IIJ GIO EU Service.
The IIJ GIO EU Service leverages the expertise garnered through operating the IIJ GIO Service in Japan, offering the same high-quality server environment in Europe as IIJ does in the Japanese market.

The client can select the type of server (virtual or physical), CPU performance and memory size, OS, and other features, making this service highly adaptable, the company said.
IIJ established a data center in London in April 2013 and built a high-capacity backbone network that connects Japan, the UK, and the US.

Using high-speed Internet connections, the client has access to a stable server environment with low latency. A great many of the cloud services in Europe use traffic-based fees, while this service includes network costs in the same monthly fee, so clients pay the same price even if they experience sudden spikes in traffic.
