Dublin’s prosperous business environment has attracted companies in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, financial services and ICT sectors, who have chosen to set up business operations in the city. Over 700 US companies are based in Ireland and in the past 15 years, the country has enjoyed being amongst the highest rate of economic growth within the European Union.
Dublin has its own Internet Exchange, INEX, which sees over 95% of Irish internet traffic routed through the exchange. With peak traffic levels approaching 110 gigabits per second, the exchange handled over 200 petabytes of data in 2015 alone. The city is also well served by an advanced communications infrastructure including a link to the Hibernia-Atlantic submarine cable which provides low-latency connectivity both to North America and the UK. Connectivity is getting even better, with direct sub-sea cables to the European Continent soon to be operational.
Dublin is ranked 11th globally in the Technological readiness country rank by the World Economic Forum and Forbes magazine ranked it as the “best city to found a company” due to its rich ecosystem and support of business.
Our Dublin data centers are business hubs for 190+ companies. Dublin customers can choose from a broad range of network services and can also interconnect directly to customers and partners in their digital supply chain.
