Edge data center solutions provider, EdgeConneX, now partners with Lume – a provider of private cloud, data center and hybrid infrastructure solutions, to distribute diverse cloud solutions locally, exactly where businesses would need them.
With the IoT, 5G and other innovative applications challenging traditional centralized data center models, this partnership between EdgeConneX and Lume intends to help solve for many common cloud adoption challenges.
Now, EdgeConneX customers can leverage Lume’s ‘Cloud Anyware’ service suite to deploy highly proximate dedicated private, virtual private, hybrid and on-premise cloud solutions.
“The edge is not so much a place as it is a way of architecting the Internet to be responsive to businesses’ needs for localized network peering, data acquisition, compute processing and storage as close as possible to their end-users,” said Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of EdgeConneX. “Whereas long-standing cloud service offerings are often clustered and centralized in design, our partnership with Lume distributes diverse cloud solutions locally, exactly where businesses need them. We’re excited about our partnership with Lume because it supports us in accomplishing a critical goal – bringing the cloud to the edge, local and highly proximate to enterprise customers.”
Benefits of the EdgeConneX/Lume partnership for organizations would include:
EdgeConneX Global Hyperlocal/Hyperscale Data Center Services – An established global platform of hyperlocal to hyperscale data center facilities in over 30 markets worldwide, would connect cloud service providers (CSPs) and enterprises with improved latency, performance and reliability.
Multi-Cloud Scalability – Hybrid and multi-cloud solutions would allow customers to optimize cloud services, delivering flexibility and scalability as their business grows. They would evolve with the ability to securely interconnect to any and all of the leading cloud service providers via cloud access partners.
Choice in Location and Infrastructure Type via Cloud Anyware: Organizations can choose the infrastructure types they need and have them all fully integrated, managed, and supported by Lume’s industry experts, including: private cloud, colocation, hybrid cloud, on-premise cloud and public cloud connectivity.
Data Privacy and Control: Cloud solutions located where customers need them, giving them control of their data to ensure it is always secured, private, meeting compliance standards.
“Location matters and being at ‘the edge’ is important to our customers,” said Josh Rhine, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Lume. It decreases latency, can help meet compliance requirements, and provides geographically diverse locations for colocation, cloud solutions, and disaster recovery environments.
EdgeConneX footprint of data centers allows us to add even more locations for deploying our Cloud Anyware solutions and gives our customers more options for selecting the right data center location, and help define what the ‘cloud’ means for them.”
