ACI Worldwide Opens European Data Centre
October 2016 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
ACI Worldwide announced the opening of its new European data centre. Located in Limerick, this state-of-the-art facility delivers reliability, security and data privacy, further expanding world-class payments solution capabilities and capacity for European customers, comprising some of largest merchants, intermediaries and financial institutions, including the two biggest banks in Ireland.
In order to accommodate growing EMEA demand, the new fully redundant data centre was built and launched in record time, and meets the most stringent security and compliance standards. Moreover, it further leverages ACI’s product investments to make its Universal Payments solutions available to European companies through ACI’s private cloud.
The facility also brings job growth to the region. In partnership with IDA Ireland, ACI will add 50 new hires, on top of the current team of nearly 100. The company has had a presence in Limerick for ten years, cultivating strong talent as part of its long-standing internship program and collaboration with the University of Limerick.
ACI provides world-class electronic payments, banking, and fraud protection solutions and services to more than 4,600 financial institutions, retailers, and billers around the world through a private cloud, processing more than 35 million transactions per day.
