Racks Central selects Epsilon for data centre connectivity
29 October 2014 |
Data centre and managed services provider Racks Central has today announced an agreement with Epsilon for the delivery of its outsourced intelligent network services.
Epsilon’s network outsourcing model will enable Racks Central to provide its customers with core data centre services as well as global network connectivity.
Racks Central will take advantage of the 500+ network operators already connected to the Epsilon Global Exchange, and use Epsilon’s eConnect solution to connect its data centre facilities with other locations worldwide.
“Cloud application providers are increasingly looking for complete infrastructure solutions that include data centres and network. This is why we are using our network outsourcing model to support data centre providers as they enter the networking space,” said Andreas Hipp, CEO at Epsilon.
“We offer not just the A to B connectivity but the intelligence and expertise to ensure the delivery of high performance applications and communications services.”
With one Tier 3 data centre already operational in Singapore, Racks Central expects a second to be operation in Q1 2015. The company will establish a ring network between these facilities to meet customer requirements.
“The flexibility and efficiency of the Epsilon model means we can meet the unique needs of our customers wherever they need to connect,” said Bobby Wee, CEO at Racks Central.
“Data centre customers are asking for more complex solutions and Epsilon was able to offer us an innovative approach that adds value for our customers.”
