RapidSwitch provides dedicated hosting for global online recycling marketplace

22/04/2013

RapidSwitch, is providing dedicated hosting for a new B2B online marketplace which is changing the face of the global trade in recyclable materials.

Recycling.com is unique because it allows an auction to take place directly between the seller of recyclable materials - such as paper, plastics, and metals - and those wanting to buy it, in a secure trustworthy online environment. Since launching six months ago over 150 companies have registered in over 17 different countries and turnover of existing members is in excess of $12 billion.

Mark Baij, CEO of Recycling.com, said: "Since launching we've had a tremendous amount of interest, and with a multilingual website and team we can communicate very effectively with all the main markets worldwide. Trading started recently and we continue to add new members on a daily basis so we're pleased that the demand we felt was there based on our research and knowledge of the market is materialising."

The data for the Recycling.com transactions is stored and transmitted securely from a UK-based dedicated server at RapidSwitch's 1300 metre² Maidenhead data centre which sits behind a Cisco ASA security appliance to give complete control over access to the platform.

Noel Hanrahan, COO of Recycling.com, explained: "Our members want reassurance that our site is stable and secure. A key component of this is crucially linked to the service and performance of our hosting company."

RapidSwitch's ISO 27001 and 9001 accredited data centre facilities offer complete peace of mind over the physical security of the platform, complementing the electronic security put in place by Recycling.com.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, said: "We are delighted to be providing reliable and secure hosting for Recycling.com as it establishes a brand new marketplace for recyclables."
