A market with new demands in technology and services

Abiquo is growing rapidly, as more and more companies look to transition to the cloud and their current clients increase their use of the cloud to roll out services and applications. With Abiquo, companies can migrate to the cloud in a simple way, maintaining part of their infrastructure in their current data centers.

This increase in demand is creating new challenges for Abiquo. On the one hand, restructuring is necessary to increase clients’ service levels. On the other, on a technological level, new technologies and services come up daily and Abiquo has to try them out and evaluate if they’re worth adding to Abiquo’s present offerings in order to potentially improve service levels for clients.

These new challenges have made Abiquo more and more demanding when it comes to what they require from their data center provider, as their needs continue to increase for what is for them, an essential service.

"Adam helps us a lot by providing access to a stable foundation, which is key so that we can focus on the technologies our business depends on."

A secure, solid, and dependable partner for continued growth

The main thing that Adam brings to Abiquo is tranquility. On the one hand, Abiquo has seen Adam is a proactive and approachable provider, that’s easy to contact, and responds to their needs and requests in a timely and effective manner. On the other, the team at Abiquo also underlines the sense of security that comes with uninterrupted service. With Adam, Abiquo hasn’t had incidents with data center services or connectivity.

Another source of security for Abiquo is Adam’s growth plan, which allows companies to quickly adapt to clients’ needs. Because Abiquo knows that when they want to increase their offering of services and capacities, with Adam, they’ll have space in the data center to grow. This space gives companies the room they need to react and pivot as needed, shorten project timelines, and move forward more quickly while taking into account the changing market. According to Xavier Fernández, co-founder and CTO of Abiquo, “with other providers we saw this wasn’t possible and would require big investments, not just in money, but also in time, to be able to access significantly more capacity in the data center”.

Effective service without incidents

After three years working together, there haven’t been any incidents or disruptions in the services Adam provides to Abiquo. This lack of incidents is especially important in a business like Abiquo’s, dedicated to offering cloud services, as any disruption could have a serious impact on the company’s reputation.

Furthermore, Abiquo has been able to take full advantage of Adam’s capacities at the connectivity level. As a neutral party that works with all operators and access technologies, Adam enables Abiquo to centralize multiple solutions with one provider and optimize their expenses.

"Although it may sound strange, another important positive for us when it comes to working with Adam has been that we haven’t needed to ask for any additional services, because we see that things are functioning correctly and there simply haven’t been any connectivity problems. So we’re really content. In the end, we feel like our experience has been good because we haven’t had any service incidents."

What are the main benefits of working with Adam?

Xavier Fernández, Co-founder and CTO at Abiquo, highlights the main benefits obtained from counting on a solid, stable partner like Adam:

  • Stability and dependability from a data center without incidents.
  • Accessibility and transparency with approachable and direct support.
  • Capacity for growth in the data center.
  • Clarity and cost savings with centralized connectivity from one provider.

"In the past, we had a lot of challenges with connectivity in data centers, because if we wanted more, the economic investment was substantially more. In this sense, for the same price, we’ve gained significant connectivity with Adam."
