Interoute, owner operator of one of Europe’s largest cloud services platforms, has taken the final step in creating a fully meshed global network with two new diverse routes between Los Angeles and Hong Kong. With this new extension across the Pacific, Interoute’s “low latency” network now circles the globe.
The new route goes live in September 2015. Interoute will now be able to provide its enterprise customers with “low latency” pan-Pacific services, all built on its own entirely private and secured MPLS network. Provision has also been made for reliability, with the simultaneous deployment of two diverse routes to cover the distance.
Interoute has integrated its MPLS network with its cloud infrastructure platform, Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC), which is designed on a global scale to make doing business across multiple markets “simple and easy.”
“Our investment in new links between Asia and the USA signifies the next stage in the development of Interoute’s global networked cloud,” said Mark Lewis, VP Communications & Connectivity at Interoute. “Our customers wishing to expand across the globe need a network and services platform that truly supports their digital businesses. With the launch of these new connections, Interoute is delivering the network capacity and service platforms that enterprises need to grow across the Pacific and around the world.”
The announced network expansion follows the launches of the Interoute IP PoPs and VDC zones in Los Angeles and Hong Kong, enabling companies to build their own private and Hybrid cloud infrastructures globally. This announcement also follows Interoute’s recent opening of a new PoP in Singapore, strengthening its position in one of the world’s biggest financial hubs and a key business destination in the Asia-Pacific region.
Interoute’s global cloud services platform encompasses 12 data centers, 14 Virtual Data Centers and 31 colocation centers, with connections to 195 additional third-party data centers across Europe.
