Interoute, a global cloud and network provider, has announced the launch of new services in São Paulo, Brazil. The site is Interoute’s first in South America and will deliver a range of connectivity solutions in collaboration with local partners, as well as host a new Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) zone.
This latest addition to Interoute’s cloud and connectivity platform builds on the company’s existing Americas presence in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Washington.
São Paulo would provide an entry point into the rapidly developing emerging markets in South America. The city is ranked by the Global Cities Index as a South American leader in business activity.
“The economic powerhouse of South America is increasingly important to our global customer base, with São Paulo, in particular, becoming a magnet for cloud and SaaS,” said Mark Lewis, EVP of Products and Development, Interoute. “Strategically, this is a significant development for the Interoute Enterprise Digital Platform as it brings our cloud and SD-WAN capabilities to a whole new continent. Our platform helps enterprises optimize the performance of applications deployed from SaaS providers and hosted in dispersed data center locations around the globe; regional presence is key to accelerating that performance across our low-latency SDN core network.”
31 Countries, 5 Continents
The new site in South America would demonstrate Interoute’s commitment to increasing its global footprint by adding yet another continent to its platform reach, following its recent announcement for Sydney, Australia.
With Interoute’s cloud and connectivity services in São Paulo set to go live in the first half of 2018, the company’s global network now connects 128 major cities across 31 countries on 5 continents.
The Interoute Enterprise Digital Platform would bring improved application performance to the enterprise. It combines a “fast” global fiber optic network with a software defined core, a global cloud computing platform, and edge SD-WAN & security devices for connecting sites, offices and branches, to optimize enterprise data traffic flows across the world.
