Maidstone firm joins New York Internet Exchange


Maidstone-based IT infrastructure company VooServers has expanded further into the United States after joining one of the country’s biggest internet connectivity hubs.

Following a successful trial, VooServers has launched an eight-strong engineering team in New York to support customers across the Atlantic.

They will oversee a network that stretches across the country from VooServers’ new Seattle base to the Big Apple, where a new agreement has seen the company join the New York Internet Exchange.

Matt Parkinson, VooServers founder and technical director, said: “VooServers is enjoying significant expansion in the United States with the new service team and joining the New York Internet Exchange key parts of our growth programme.

“It will mean VooServers are able to peer directly with the likes of Google, Amazon and Apple, offering much better network performance to our clients.

“This step is significant for us as a company, allowing us to expand our network Stateside to a similar size to our UK operation over the coming months, which we never dreamt would happen so soon when setting up the New York data centre four years ago.

“The new engineering team will be an integral part of our operation, providing us with much more expertise on the ground for faster and more robust deployments, with additional protection against outages and greater network control.

“They will be closely linked in with our UK operation in Maidstone, where we are also taking on a number of additional staff, including our newly appointed web and marketing strategist, Jordan Bradley Stopps (pictured below).”

The 13-year-old company now has datacentres across two continents, including Maidstone, Frankfurt, New York and Seattle.
