Norwegian fibre and data centre company Bulk Infrastructure has turned to Epsilon to provide access to cloud services around the world.Epsilon says it will give rapid access to the world’s leading cloud service providers, with Bulk Infrastructure deploying the Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) module of the Infiny by Epsilon on-demand connectivity platform.
Bulk Infrastructure will provide the service from its Oslo Internet Exchange (OS-IX) carrier hotel. “The combination of robust data centre infrastructure and presence in the OS-IX creates an ideal scenario for deploying CloudLX and giving its customers rapid access to a global cloud service provider community,” said Epsilon CCO Carl Roberts. “It gains the scalability and flexibility to support the growth of the cloud locally and around the world.”
“We want to create Norway as one of the world’s most attractive locations for digital services and data centres,” said Peder Nærbø, owner and chairman at Bulk Infrastructure.
Roberts said: “Bulk Infrastructure has a unique vision for the market and we are proud to support them with on-demand connectivity to the cloud.” Bulk Infrastructure specialises in the development of data centre real estate, data centre services and fibre infrastructure with a focus on dark fibre. Its OS-IX carrier hotel facility acts as an aggregation centre and enterprise connect point for Norway.
Nærbø added: “CloudLX gives our customers the ability to serve growing cloud demands with new agility. It has a model that matches user expectations while also offering them the flexibility to grow.” The CloudLX module of Infiny by Epsilon gives users on-demand access to cloud service providers such as Alibaba Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure as well as the leading internet exchanges.
Bulk Infrastructure says it is establishing the world’s largest data centre campus, the N01 Campus, on renewable energy in south Norway. It has developed a large dark-fibre network within Norway and created the Oslo Internet Exchange.
Bulk is also a co-builder of the transatlantic subsea cable Havfrue connecting Scandinavia and the US.
