TelecityGroup, a provider of carrier neutral data centers, has unveiled an innovative cloud neutral ecosystem that enables flexible, scalable and high-performance enterprise cloud solutions. Cloud-IX, the cloud neutral ecosystem, enables customers to execute private, hybrid and public cloud deployments through direct connections into leading cloud and IT service providers.
By enabling an unparalleled opportunity to consume public and private cloud services, the company ensures that customers can utilize the richness of cloud service operators across its data centers to build and strengthen their underlying platforms for business growth. Customers can maximize 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.
The solution gives sophisticated choices around the deployment of their applications without restrictions due to data sovereignty or vendor lock-in. It also allows customers to seamlessly connect to, and between, cloud providers, physical systems and networks as part of TelecityGroup’s vibrant digital ecosystem. The Cloud-IX platform will be available to customers located in any of TelecityGroup's facilities across Europe. It will provide direct connectivity with leading and most innovative cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services; iland (News - Alert), VMware’s global cloud provider of the year; CSC; Fujitsu and Outsourcery.
Michael Tobin, CEO of TelecityGroup, said, “Businesses across Europe are looking at ways they can maximize 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.”
“In this scenario, businesses have the traditional challenges of maintaining service levels and maximizing the benefit of existing IT investments,” Tobin said. The key to solving this challenge, according to Tobin, is “building flexible solutions that utilize the elasticity and economic benefits of the public cloud alongside existing IT infrastructure, all with direct connectivity into local and international carriers.”
