Van Moer Logistics has been a Eurofiber customer since 2014. We asked them some feedback about their cooperation with Eurofiber. Stijn Spooren, network manager: “Everything started with the need of an internet access when we moved all physical services to our datacenter at our headquarters in Zwijndrecht.
Move to datacenter
We needed a very good, stable internet connection with sufficient bandwidth. We compared a number of suppliers and Eurofiber appeared to be the best partner.” Over time, Van Moer Logistics opened several sites in the port of Antwerp and the rest of Flanders, including in Ghent, Vilvoorde and Zellik. Via the IP-VPN network all sites are provided with a layer 3 connection to the datacenter of Arxus.
Hybrid Cloud Solution
Meanwhile, almost all of Van Moer’s IT solutions are being carried out at their Managed Cloud Provider Arxus. Van Moer uses a hybrid cloud solution at Arxus. For example, Arxus introduced Office 365 in Van Moer’s workplaces, the core of the logistics systems is being run in the Belgian Arxus private cloud and they can scale to Azure. The switch from on-premise to the cloud guarantees a scalable and future-orien-ted ICT environment that adequately supports the development of the group.
All sites must also have a very efficient and fast connection to the datacenter. Stijn Spooren: “We chose Eurofiber for the IP-VPN project for various reasons. Firstly, we are very satisfied with Eurofiber and we want to continue working with them. Secondly, the necessary infrastructure is already present in Kallo and Zwijndrecht. For the other sites we also opted for Eurofiber because of the presence of the network and their competitive offer. The choice for fiber optic is an obvious one for us, since it is the only technology that can provide us with the speed that we need.”
