HGC deploys HGC International Marketplace with Naas
HGC Global Communications (HGC) has deployed the HGC International Marketplace with network-as-a-service (NaaS) on its BDx data centre.
The new offering will enable the near zero-touch availability of data centre services on the centralised marketplace.
HGC International Marketplace enables the interoperability among different segments of carriers, enterprises and developers. The NaaS marketplace will be available to all BDx data centres operating an on-net infrastructure connectivity between the data centres.
“HGC built the emerging architecture platform supported by OPENFLOW protocol to eliminate network control from proprietary devices based on a vendor neutrality approach,” said Cliff Tam, vice president of global data strategy of HGC’s International Business,
“With the proliferating attainability and compatibility, it is HGC’s strategy to focus on seamlessly connecting all major carriers with this open platform.”
Using HGC’s layer-2 network connection managed by the SDN architecture and centralised controller called OpenKilda, BDx customers can connect to any of the data centres on-demand and from a single-pane International Marketplace with a centralized view of the entire network as it scales.
“We aim to provide a platform where our customers can have a borderless unified view and management of IT workloads and resources and provide the customers the unique ability to delineate their applications from the complexity of the underlying infrastructure in a secure manner,” said Sujit Panda, CTIO of BDx.
In addition, through HGC, data center customers can reach different global public cloud services such as AWS, Alibaba Cloud, Tencent Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, as well as international Internet Exchanges like AMS-IX, LINX, DE-CIX, to meet the needs of ISPs and global OTTs.
