VIRTUS teams up with GCX
A new partnership between VIRTUS Data Centres (www.virtusdatacentres.com) and Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) www.globalcloudxchange.com will see VIRTUS’ Cloud Connect Platform interoperate with GCX’s Cloud X Fusion ecosystem to provide seamless, latency-guaranteed connectivity to leading cloud platforms for enterprises, carriers and media companies.
Commenting on the partnership, Bryce Jewell, GCX's UK Managing Director said, "As enterprises continue to mobilize and expand into new geographies, they face a pressing need for secure global capabilities for mission critical applications. By building SDN based acceleration, security and on demand usage based value-added features into the network, we are increasing application performance, reducing bandwidth costs and improving security while providing VIRTUS and its customers high performance SLA-backed cloud connectivity across developed and emerging markets in the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia.”
“Cloud adoption is increasing at an unprecedented rate and it is mission critical to have a scalable and resilient infrastructure," said Darren Watkins, Managing Director, VIRTUS Data Centres. "LONDON2 is already an award-winning, world class facility with a broad range of connectivity options, but we are always striving to improve on its offering and GCX will provide a high performance global reach option, strengthening our ecosystem and ability to support the business expansion of our customers across multiple industries.”
The VIRTUS’ Cloud Connect Platform gives highly reliable public cloud access from within a data centre that is built specifically to host high power-density equipment required for virtualized cloud solutions, and Cloud X Fusion is part of GCX’s Cloud X portfolio, a proprietary platform designed to seamlessly combine the speed and power of fibre optics with the agility, flexibility and cost-efficiencies of “pay-as-you-go” cloud computing; available globally and controlled by a simple-to-use user portal.
