Digital Planet benefits from €1.6m investment

Company by Digital Planet

Evros Technology Group, the Irish owned managed services company, has invested €1.6m to set up Digital Planet. This is the Group’s biggest investment in its 23 year old history.

As a Cloud Computing specialist, Digital Planet, which has already signed a number of customers, provides computing on demand to allow companies of all sizes to fully outsource their entire IT infrastructure requirements. It is expected that this investment will directly lead to the creation of  50 jobs over the next three years.

This investment allows us to bring to the Irish market what we believe to be a unique turnkey, consultancy driven and managed 24/7 cloud service infrastructure” added Brian Larkin, Operations Director, Digital Planet. “We will hand hold and fully implement the service. We already have over 20 years’ experience of providing IT managed services and so welcome the ability to utilise the latest technology to bring real benefits to our customers.”

Just as many companies are moving to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) rather than have it on premise, Digital Planet allows organisations to adopt Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS),” continued Brian Larkin. “There is no reason why IT infrastructure should not be as easy and cost effective to use as electricity or water with the flick of a switch or tap. The technologies and environment are now available to make this happen.”

He said that the benefits to business were lower overheads, no capital expenditure, rapid scalability and ease of use. “We estimate that an organisation can not only cut its IT costs by up to 35% by using Infrastructure as-a-Service but this allows companies to refocus resources on its core business.” Digital Planet charges a monthly subscription based on actual usage.
