Amplitude has announced the opening of a new data centre facility in Frankfurt, Germany.
According to the company, it chose Frankfurt as the site for its new site due to Germany’s stringent privacy and technology standards. Amplitude has also selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the host for the facility for its rigorous privacy and security protections.
The data centre will support data storage, data ingestion, querying and visualisation, and is compliant with General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR) and certified in ISO 27001 and SOC 2 Type II.
The facility will support integrations with Snowflake, Braze, AppCues, and Airship, with additional partner integrations available in the future.
“Organisations around the world are looking to build better products through data, so we’re making big investments in global infrastructure that put exceptional security and privacy standards front and center,” said Daniel Bailey, Vice President of EMEA at Amplitude.
“Customer data privacy must be a priority, especially when sharing and storing data in the cloud. As our European customer base continues to rapidly grow, and with the evolving privacy standards within the EU, we’ve invested in this data centre to meet customer needs and ensure they are able to adhere to the highest standards of security and data privacy compliance.”
