TelecityGroup Launches New Cloud-Neutral Ecosystem to Enable Flexible, Scalable and High-Performance Enterprise Cloud Solutions
LONDON --(Business Wire)--
TelecityGroup, Europe's leading provider of premium carrier-neutral
data centres, has today launched Cloud-IX, an innovative cloud-neutral
ecosystem which will enable customers to fully leverage the potential of
the cloud, with flexible and scalable public, private and hybrid cloud
solutions. The Cloud-IX platform will be rolled out to customers located
in any of TelecityGroup's facilities across Europe, providing direct
connectivity with leading and most innovative cloud providers, including
Amazon Web Services (News - Alert); iland, VMware's global cloud provider of the year;
CSC; Fujitsu and Outsourcery.
In particular, Cloud-IX will enable customers to maximise the
efficiency, flexibility and security of the hybrid cloud by establishing
dedicated network connections from their private or managed
infrastructure into any of the cloud providers that are part of the
platform. Cloud-IX will enable businesses to make sophisticated choices
around the deployment of their applications, without restrictions due to
data sovereignty or vendor lock-in. By integrating hybrid platforms with
the cloud providers of their choice, the platform will allow customers
to seamlessly connect to, and between, cloud providers, physical systems
and networks as part of TelecityGroup's vibrant digital ecosystem.
Cloud-IX is the next stage in TelecityGroup's ongoing commitment - as
Europe's leading carrier neutral data centre provider - to deliver
innovative, business-focused solutions to support the cloud. With a
combination of remium infrastructure, connectivity and location in
Europe's key internet hubs, TelecityGroup provides the optimal data
centre environments in which to locate cloud infrastructure. With a
choice of more than 400 carriers present in its facilities, many of the
world's largest cloud service providers (CSPs) have already established
TelecityGroup as their data centre provider of choice in Europe.
Michael Tobin, CEO of TelecityGroup says: "Businesses across Europe are
looking at ways they can maximise the power of the cloud to enhance the
performance of their core platforms, manage big data with ease, and
deliver enhanced and scalable service offerings; all against the
background of ever increasing expectations in terms of security,
auditability and data sovereignty. At the same time, they have the
traditional challenges of maintaining service levels and maximising the
benefit of existing IT investments. Key to solving this challenge is
building flexible solutions that utilise the elasticity and economic
benefits of the public cloud alongside existing IT infrastructure, all
with direct connectivity into local and international carriers."
"Cloud-IX by TelecityGroup enables the best of both worlds, combining
premium carrier neutral data centres to house existing mission-critical
infrastructure with access to the key global cloud platforms. By
delivering our Cloud-IX proposition, and enabling an unparalleled
opportunity to consume public and private cloud services, we are
ensuring that customers can utilise the richness of cloud service
operators across our data centres to build and strengthen their
underlying platforms for business growth."
