Interxion to Debut UK Cloud Testlab, Enabling the Development and Deployment of Cloud Services and Virtual Environments
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov 07, 2011 – INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE:INXN, news), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data center services, and CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR) today announced that they will exhibit together at Cloud Computing Expo West 2011, November 7-10, in Santa Clara, CA, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Interxion and CoreSite announced a cloud computing alliance in June 2011, which addresses demand from cloud companies looking to collocate in both European and the U.S. data centers. This alliance aims to minimize the risk and challenges associated with international data center sourcing between Europe and the U.S., providing a seamless sourcing process and cloud-optimised network access environment.
During Cloud Expo West, Interxion will display its Cloud Testlabs, including Microsoft’s Dynamic Datacentre Toolkit (DCC), and the recently announced Cloud Testlab in the UK, based on Flexiant Extility. The Cloud Testlab enables cloud hosting providers and system integrators to develop cloud services and virtualized environments at high speed before deploying them in the cloud, allowing enterprises and service providers to build both private and public clouds at high speed and with best-in-class performance guarantees. Additionally, CoreSite will be showcasing their Cloud Community, featuring an interconnected cloud testing environment as well as an interactive forum for cloud innovation and thought leadership. The Cloud Community aims to help enterprises improve the functionality of cloud services with respect to geographic load balancing, disaster recovery models, on-demand processing and storage and energy efficiency.
“With enterprises increasingly turning to cloud computing for business processes, the cloud is now deeply engrained in how companies operate,” said Vincent in’t Veld, Interxion Cloud Segment Marketing Director. “With that, we have seen great changes within the business world. More and more companies are putting their mission critical applications in the cloud, and now rely on that virtual data with mounting trust and expectation. We look forward to our continued collaboration with customers and partners to make advancements in cloud computing for today’s business leaders, and are excited to be at Cloud Expo West 2011 with CoreSite and our peers to discuss the growth and implications of cloud.”
