Posted 11/19/2019

Infrastructure Investment will Support Large-Scale Deployments of EV Charging Stations Globally

Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK, BLNKW), Blink Charging announced the modernization of its cloud computing for its proprietary Blink Network connecting thousands of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across the country. The company, founded in 2010, upgraded its network and operations to the Microsoft Azure cloud computing services to prepare for future needs as the EV industry continues to grow.

The transition to Azure provides Blink the scalability to add additional EV charging stations to its rapidly growing network of equipment both across the United States and globally. The upgrade will also allow the Blink Network to be expandable internationally and flawlessly execute the EV driver experience across the globe.

This investment in infrastructure improvements showcases the company’s focus on expanding its infrastructure in response to its rapid growth and deployments of EV charging stations.

The Microsoft Azure service provides Blink members, and users of its charging stations, reliable service with robust system monitoring, scalability regarding infrastructure and system integrations, and rigorous disaster recovery and business continuity redundancies. The Azure platform will ensure the Blink Network operates with maximum uptime making the EV charging stations also ready and able to support drivers across the country.

“We are in a high growth stage and focused on implementing strategic initiatives that support our goal of becoming the leading owner and operator of EV charging equipment. This investment in infrastructure will provide the reliability, expandability, and scalability to achieve this goal,” shared Michael D. Farkas, Blink Chairman, and President.

Moving to the Azure environment has also allowed the company to create additional levels of security to the network through the system architecture strengthening it against cybersecurity threats.
