Epsilon now offers on-demand access to cloud connectivity using Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute in Singapore.
Service providers in Singapore can now use
Epsilon’s on-demand connectivity platform Infiny
to connect their enterprise customers to Azure. The news
expands Epsilon’s local cloud connectivity
capabilities and supports Singapore’s growth as a
cloud hub for the region.
"We are a Singapore-based business
and we’re proud to be supporting the cloud
locally, regionally and around the world. Our work with
Microsoft supports our vision for simple and powerful solutions
that directly benefit users," said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at
Epsilon. "Cloud adoption in Asia-Pacific is growing at a
phenomenal rate and Singapore is a major global hub for cloud
services. It is critical that we continue to grow our ecosystem
to deliver agile networking solutions that enables our partners
to service the growing enterprise demand for cloud
By avoiding the public internet, Epsilon’s
Cloud Connect service creates a direct connection to a cloud
service provider in a secure, quick, reliable and scalable
environment. Users can use on Infiny to give them access to the
connectivity as they expand and adopt their cloud services.
Azure ExpressRoute creates private connections between Azure
data centres and infrastructure on an enterprise’s
premises or in their colocation facilities. Infiny is a
software-defined networking (SDN) platform that gives users
on-demand connectivity across epsilon’s global
interconnect fabric of more than 600 service providers, cloud
service providers and Internet exchnages.
"It is great to build on our existing relationship with
Epsilon to add new connectivity options across the Asia-Pacific
region starting with Singapore. The Cloud market in
Asia-Pacific is diverse, dynamic and growing rapidly. We look
forward to expanding our Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute
connectivity partners across the region and working with
Epsilon to support Cloud growth locally and across the globe,"
added Ross Ortega, partner PM manager at Microsoft Azure
Networking at Microsoft Corp.
Last month, Epsilon began work on the phased deployment of 100G
packet optical switched Ethernet technology across its global
backbone network. The deployment will enable Epsilon to
serve its partners with 100G connectivity on-demand via its
Infiny platform. Partners will benefit from hyper-scale
connectivity designed to support big data, internet of things
(IoT) and cloud around the world.
