Interoute, owner operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe’s largest networks, has extended its networked cloud platform further into Asia with the opening of an Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) zone in Istanbul. Interoute’s global integrated cloud and network platform is now available in 15 locations globally across 3 continents.
By establishing the new VDC zone in Istanbul, Interoute is now able to offer local cloud in Turkey that’s connected to global cloud zones across the rest of Europe, Asia and North America, from the same platform.
This new Turkish zone would create opportunities for European businesses to access new users in the dynamic business hub of Istanbul. At the same time, businesses in the Middle East and south west Asian markets would be enabled to “easily” reach new customers through the “low latency, high throughput” Interoute Networked cloud.
fThe new Interoute VDC zone would also offer local businesses in Istanbul an alternative to other cloud providers whose zones are solely in the U.S. or Western Europe. This proximity enables applications to be hosted much closer to users in the region, eliminating the need to send data thousands of kilometers back and forth for processing.
“Istanbul is major market and a key strategic digital bridge between the Europe, the Middle East and south west Asia,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute. “6 years ago, we expanded our pan European fiber backbone into the heart of Istanbul’s dynamic business hub. This is the foundation we’ve built on to extend our global cloud platform into the region. Businesses, entrepreneurs and developers using Interoute VDC can enjoy the benefits of a high performance cloud close their users, whilst having instant access as part of Interoute’s globally networked cloud platform, to Europe, USA and Asia.”
Interoute VDC is a networked cloud offering both public and private cloud services built straight into Interoute’s vast network. Performance is optimized as data is routed across this global backbone. Interoute VDC locations are currently available in Istanbul, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Geneva, Zurich, London (x2), Slough, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and New York.
