Interoute, owner and operator of a large European cloud hosting services platform, has opened a new Virtual Data Center (VDC) zone in Milan. The integration of the new Interoute Milan VDC with Interoute’s network and other VDC zones in Amsterdam, Berlin, Geneva, London and Paris, provides clients with expanded location options to deploy virtual computing and storage infrastructure.
Built into the core of its pan-European network, the Interoute VDC’s enable organizations to deploy cloud hosting and storage infrastructure for enterprise applications in minutes. Users can select any of the six Interoute VDC zones to host their data. Internet data transfer between VDC zones is free thanks to the integration of Interoute’s advanced network.
The fact that users have total control over where their data and applications reside within the Interoute VDC platform, down to the individual data centre zones, helps ensure companies can comply fully with European data legislation.
60,000 km of lit fiber
“The next evolution of the cloud is integration with the network,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute. “Interoute VDC gives companies the flexibility of public cloud computing, the security and reliability of a private cloud and the geographic scale and distribution provided by Europe’s largest network.”
Interoute’s cloud hosting services platform encompasses over 60,000 km of lit fiber, 10 hosting data centers and 31 colocation centers, with connections to 140 additional third-party data centers across Europe.
