More UK companies and agencies will be able to move faster and embrace cloud technology with the launch of RingCentral’s new UK data centre. RingCentral is a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions and is constantly innovating to expand global offerings and localised features.
Companies across the UK are already using RingCentral to replace legacy, on-premise PBX equipment and empower today’s mobile and distributed workforces. The new data centre will enable more UK organisations to take advantage of cloud communications to enhance customer experience while controlling customer data. RingCentral has partnered with a leading cloud-hosting company to open a new data centre in the UK that provides in-country failover and the same 99.999% uptime trusted SLA that customers around the world have come to expect from RingCentral.
Removing barriers to innovation across finance, healthcare, and public sector industries
Traditionally private sector organisations have led the way in adopting cloud solutions since they have fewer restrictions on data residency. However, there are certain industries, like the public sector and healthcare, which have more demanding data residency requirements. If modern cloud solution vendors do not provide local UK data residency, these customers would have to continue using antiquated, on-premise systems that are costly to maintain, demand the attention and maintenance of IT teams, and limit capabilities for integration and system updates.
Now, with RingCentral, all industries can take advantage of modern cloud communications to improve both customer and employee experiences. Enterprises benefit from simplified multi-location management, modern applications, open APIs, hundreds of pre-built integrations, global availability, and reliable, secure service. With the arrival of the RingCentral UK data centre, bringing RingCentral’s total global data centre count to 30, more finance, healthcare, and public sector organisations can begin to break down barriers to innovation and join an ever-growing rapid shift to the cloud. In fact, RingCentral is currently experiencing a 95% annual growth in the enterprise segment of cloud communication adoption.

RingCentral’s UK Data Centre
RingCentral’s UK data centre, which will be launched later this year, supports data residency inside the UK for RingCentral’s flagship Office product, including voicemail, call recordings, faxes, call logs, and analytics. Future releases will expand data residency across other product lines.
“Enterprise organisations today are committed to transforming the business towards a digital future. Such transformations are enabled by technology being delivered via the flexibility and simplicity of the cloud,” said Sahil Rekhi, Managing Director for RingCentral in EMEA. “As part of our commitment to address these growing needs in the UK, combined with situations like Brexit – we see the opening of our UK data centres, in addition to our existing European data centres, as an opportunity to extend access to our collaborative cloud communications platform to businesses who thought it was not possible in the past.”
