ALSO expands its cloud business offering with a Mobile Datacenter service enabling customers to individually configure modular cloud platforms. ALSO is the first B2B market place to offer Mobile Datacenter services in Europe. The Mobile Datacenter has been tailored for ALSO by CANCOM Group.

"Both Private and Hybrid Cloud present great opportunities for our customers. In this fast growing area of business we want to enable our customers to deliver a rich catalogue of services to their customers and deliver end-to-end turnkey solutions. With the Mobile Datacenter we continue our commitment to help our customers bring tangible value-add to their customers," said Prof. Dr. Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX:ALSN).

With the Mobile Datacenter, ALSO customers can configure platforms of Private or Hybrid Cloud and offer them to their customers in a pay-per-use model, delivered from a Tier 3 TUV certified datacenter – all built in a 20 ft or 40 ft sea container. The platform enables a broad variety of business applications and solutions to be delivered in a scalable and flexible model. One of the first business applications to be delivered from the Mobile Datacenter could be the CANCOM AHP Enterprise Cloud.

"We are excited to expand our partnership with ALSO and to bring in the Mobile Datacenters. With this service, customers can deploy feature rich services in a very flexible and time efficient way. The CANCOM Mobile Datacenters can be used anywhere quickly. Therefore businesses benefit from a high agility and scalability," said Rudolf Hotter, COO, CANCOM Group.

The Mobile Datacenters will be available in all 15 ALSO–countries in September 2016 with first deliveries scheduled for deployment in Finland and Switzerland already over the coming weeks. CANCOM AHP will be available soon in the ALSO Cloud Marketplace in Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Eastern Europe, delivered from the new Mobile Datacenters, inter alia.
