SurveyMonkey launches European data centre

Data analytics Europe News

UK – Survey software company SurveyMonkey has launched a European data centre in Dublin as it looks to increase its European enterprise business.


The centre will be available to new enterprise customers from this month. Through the public cloud infrastructure, SurveyMonkey will be able to host data locally for companies based or doing business in the region.

The investment is part of a broader focus from the company to help enterprise customers have better control over their data residency. More than a third of its revenue comes from customers outside of the US, with a significant proportion from Europe.

Zander Lurie, chief executive officer at SurveyMonkey, said: “The launch of our European data centre is a key milestone in SurveyMonkey’s growth strategy, one that supports the expansion of the company’s international footprint and the acceleration of our enterprise sales motion.”

Lurie said the cloud investments will allow the company to grow its European business and provide “the data control, security and best-in-class user experience that global enterprises demand.”

Data migrations for existing enterprise customers are expected to take place later in the year, with a final migration for self-serve customers planned for later.

The European data centre launch follows the appointment of Joe Cummiskey as senior director of enterprise sales in EMEA, in January.
