DEAC is planning to open a representation office in Kiev in the end of 2012. In 2010 DEAC has opened a representation office in Moscow.

„DEAC experience in European market is very useful for Ukraine, where business is often international and has affiliates not only in Ukraine or CIS countries, but in the rest of the world as well. DEAC is located between East and West, provides data centers infrastructure, secure data storage and administration. The active operation beyond the boundaries of Ukraine implies the necessity of an experienced, technologically advanced and reliable IT partner,” explains O. Naskidajevs.
