The planet runs on data. In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand, more than at any time in our past, just how important it is to have access to data-driven applications, services, and functions in every form.
ServiceNow has operated with a wholly data-centric mindset from our inception in 2004. As we look to the needs of enterprises between now and the end of this decade, we have built out our strategy for future services provision by investing in new physical data centre facilities in Europe.
Our data centre infrastructure is now bolstered by two new locations: Newport, United Kingdom, and Dublin, Ireland. The new data centres establish two new pairings for the hosting of customer instances: a UK sovereign pair between London and Newport, and an EU sovereign pair between Amsterdam and Dublin.
This infrastructure development ensures we are continuing to support increasing demand from customers for cloud-native technologies, as they leave behind legacy infrastructures to accelerate their digital transformation journeys with increased cloud adoption. Our expanded data centre footprint across Europe also helps customers navigate the post‑Brexit landscape.
