Flexential has teamed up with Seaborn Networks to expand its FlexAnywhere offering via the Seabras-1 Latin American subsea cable.

The provider of data centre colocation and hybrid IT solutions will provide customers with direct access to Seaborn Networks’ trans-Oceanic platform for the low latency, high-speed, 72Tbps seamless connection to Latin America.

“With the Latin American subsea cable, we are delivering on our promise of expansion by offering the fastest and most reliable wholesale route from the US to Brazil,” said Chris Downie, chief executive officer at Flexential (pictured).

“Just like our New Cross Pacific cables to Asia and the Hawaiki submarine cable to Australia and New Zealand, the Seabras-1 to South America is built for performance that is second to none. This enables us to provide our customers with more connections to the world through the latest generation of high-capacity, ultra-low latency service delivered in a fraction of the time of legacy suppliers.”

Via this new partnership with Seaborn, FlexAnywhere now offers a route on Seabras-1, a non-stop path between the commercial centres of the New York/New Jersey, US, and São Paulo, Brazil, giving Flexential customers one of the lowest latency routes available in the market.

Latency-sensitive applications rely heavily on the shortest and most stable network paths, and Seaborn has designed its solution to deliver on both fronts. The amount of data travelling from the US to Brazil is growing at a 30% CAGR due to broadband adoption, bandwidth-heavy application adoption, and a broader business shift of Brazilian businesses to the cloud.

At the same time, many legacy US-Brazil network systems are nearing end-of-life and need to be replaced. Seaborn’s latest generation trans-Oceanic network platform is a simple solution for network buyers looking to quickly phase out current end-of-life systems.

“Our vision is defined by flexibility: we pioneered a pay as you grow business model and the most responsive service delivery capability based on customer’s requested due date that enables all purchasers of US to Brazil network services,” added Larry Schwartz, chief executive officer of Seaborn Networks.

“Flexential’s dedication to giving its customers the flexibility they need to grow and evolve makes them an ideal partner for us, and we look forward to continuing to push boundaries to give our shared customers the very best.”
