BlackLine Systems Opens Data Centres in Amsterdam and London

London and Los Angeles - 06 June 2013 - BlackLine Systems has opened data centres in Amsterdam and London to support the growing demand for the company's enterprise-class financial close SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) solution in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region. Data will reside on servers at Verizon subsidiary Terremark – the world's leading provider of sophisticated data centre and security solutions. 

The top-tier facilities will provide BlackLine's EMEA-based clients with unmatched performance, security and availability, as well as long-term scalability, as BlackLine continues its rapid global expansion. Achmea, a pan-European insurance provider and the largest carrier in the Netherlands, is up and running on the new BlackLine European data centres.

"Some estimates suggest that as much as 95 percent of companies are still reconciling their balance sheet accounts manually! We have a wide open market opportunity," Mario Spanicciati , executive director of EMEA & EVP of Operations, BlackLine Systems, said. "Coupled with the fact that SaaS subscriptions in general are expected to continue to increase at an exponential pace, we want to be sure we have a scalable infrastructure in place for our enterprise-class Cloud offering that will provide our clients with world-class performance and security and also support our growth for the long haul."

"Access to Terremark's expertise in secure co-location, managed hosting and network services, as well as the company's global capabilities, will be invaluable to us and our clients going forward," added Spanicciati.

BlackLine's new European data centres include components and technology from the world's leading networking and infrastructure providers including Cisco, Dell, SAP and VMware. 

BlackLine offers clients its enterprise-class software in a simple and secure OnDemand/SaaS platform. BlackLine headquarters are in Los Angeles, with offices in Atlanta, Chicago, London, Melbourne, New York City and Sydney to serve the company's growing global client base.
