City Cloud, City Networks’ OpenStack-based public infrastructure, has joined Interxion’s Cloud Connect platform.
Interxion said that this move enables customers to extend
their network with high speed and secure connections to City
Cloud points of presence in Interxion’s Stockholm,
London and Frankfurt campuses.
City Network is a European provider of IT infrastructure
services, with public, private and hybrid cloud solutions based
on OpenStack from more than 20 data centres around the
Interxion’s director of strategy and marketing,
Vincent in ’t Veld, said: "The addition of City
Cloud to our Cloud Connect platform further increases the value
to our customers who want to build and operate high performance
hybrid IT solutions from our colocation facilities using City
Cloud’s OpenStack infrastructure."
By connecting to City Connect through the Cloud Connect
platform, Interxion customers will have a reliable and high
performance VPN connection to City Cloud.
At the same time, this enables enterprises to easily maintain
fully redundant infrastructure and build systems that span
multiple service providers across Europe. City Cloud customers
can also take advantage of the Cloud Connect platform and gain
access to other cloud service providers available on the
platform, said the company.
Johan Christenson, CEO and founder of City Network, said:
"Customers can now access City Cloud throughout
Interxion’s footprint and beyond using cloud
services from City Cloud and other Cloud Connect partners. This
will enable multi-cloud strategies, and is ideal for
organisations who are subject to regulatory requirements for
data sovereignty and security."
City Cloud said it can ensure that customers comply with
demands originating from specific laws and regulations
concerning auditing, reputability, data handling and data
security such as Basel and Solvency.
Last month Interxion expanded Cloud Connect to its
Marseille campus and City Network expanded its City Cloud
service to Dubai, its first move to the Middle East.
