VIRTUS has partnered with Global Cloud Xchange to link its Cloud X Fusion ecosystem with VIRTUS’ cloud platform.

VIRTUS Data Centres has announced a partnership with Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), to link its Cloud X Fusion ecosystem  with VIRTUS’ Cloud Connect Platform.

This will provide reliable and secure public cloud access from within VIRTUS data centres, providing tailored, high power-density equipment for virtualised cloud solutions.

Bryce Jewell, managing director of UK for GCX said: “As enterprises continue to mobilise and expand into new geographies, they face a pressing need for secure global capabilities for mission critical applications. By building software-defined networking (SDN) based acceleration, security and on-demand usage based value added features into the network, we are increasing application performance, reducing bandwidth costs and improving security while providing VIRTUS and its customers high performance SLA-backed cloud connectivity across developed and emerging markets in the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia. We look forward to building a long term business relation with VIRTUS.”

Darren Watkins, managing director, VIRTUS Data Centres said: “Cloud adoption is increasing at an unprecedented rate and it is mission critical to have a scalable and resilient infrastructure. LONDON2 (a VIRTUS data centre) is already an award-winning, world-class facility with a broad range of connectivity options, but we are always striving to improve on its offering and GCX will provide a high-performance global reach option, strengthening our ecosystem and ability to support the business expansion of our customers across multiple industries.”
