Host in Ireland Adds EdgeConneX as Strategic Partner

Host in Ireland has added EdgeConneX as a strategic partner.

In addition, Phill Lawson-Shanks, chief architect and vice president of innovation of EdgeConneX, will join Host in Ireland’s Executive Committee.

“We are delighted to welcome EdgeConneX to Host in Ireland’s growing team of distinguished partner companies,” said Garry Connolly, founder and president of Host in Ireland.  “The company’s leading edge-of-network infrastructure solutions are expanding and improving access to wireless and data communications and represent a much-needed paradigm shift. Meanwhile, we extend a warm welcome to Mr. Lawson-Shanks, who has been designing and deploying industry leading data center solutions in both the UK and the U.S. for over 25 years, to Host in Ireland’s Executive Committee.”

Ireland’s data center landscape has evolved dramatically over the past decade, as more companies seek data center environments that offer enhanced connectivity, security, cost control and renewable energy. Host in Ireland has worked to promote these advantages.  The Executive Committee plays a vital role in supporting all aspects of the Host in Ireland initiative through collaboration, business advocacy efforts and strategic guidance.

“Host in Ireland’s partner companies have been instrumental to the establishment of Ireland as a world leader in the digital assets hosting landscape,” said Lawson-Shanks.  “I am honored to join my esteemed industry colleagues on the organization’s executive committee and plan to lend my unique insights and perspectives to help elevate Ireland’s position within the global hosting community.”

Founded in 2013, Host in Ireland has headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and satellite offices in New York.  Although many of the organization’s partners are competitors, they come together as a collective to provide global companies with timely and accurate information concerning why Ireland provides the services and business environment to meet their digital hosting requirements.
