Thanks to high performance and private interconnections to the leading cloud platforms, customers at Interxion’s Marseille campus can now easily build and operate hybrid IT solutions
PARIS, FRANCE, 11 April 2017 – INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE : INXN), a leading provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services in Europe, today announced the availability of Cloud Connect, its interconnection service to the leading cloud platforms, at its Marseille campus.
Cloud Connect provides private, high performance and cost efficient interconnectivity for enterprises and IT service providers to their cloud providers of choice, including Microsoft ExpressRoute and AWS Direct Connect. Thanks to this service, organisations manage to bypass the public Internet for their connection to the clouds and achieve service level guarantees on latency, throughput and availability. As a result, enterprises, carriers and SPs/SIs are able to build hybrid IT solutions with the cloud service providers of their choice over a single physical, secure and high-performance connection. With this expansion in Marseille, Cloud Connect is now available at 12 of Interxion’s 13 data centre campuses across Europe.
Cloud Connect is also available via the Interxion Customer Portal, which enables users to provision connections to the cloud easily and efficiently according to their needs. Customers also benefit from an installation timeline guaranteed by SLAs.
“Every organisation beginning a migration to the cloud faces the challenge of making the hybrid model work with their existing IT installations. The choice of data centre is important because the application data running in different environments need to interact in a secure and high performance manner,” explains Fabrice Coquio, Managing Director at Interxion France. “As the use of hybrid IT solutions increases, so too does the need for a data centre provider who understands the complexities of these environments and has the technical capability to provide easy interconnection. Cloud Connect ensures that Interxion customers can access their multi-cloud environments and connect to our growing community of cloud service providers in an easy, fast and cost-effective way,” said Coquio.
