The move comes amid Seaborn Networks’ targeted expansion into the Latin American market. Seaborn Networks launched IP and SD-WAN networks in Brazil in the past few months. In partnership with EdgeUno as Seaborn’s managed cloud service provider, the two companies have also deployed “unique” virtualized cloud infrastructure technology to provide clients with both physical and virtual infrastructure as a service – not just in Brazil, but throughout the region.
“We live in a results-first world where a product list is no longer of interest to customers. They need customized solutions, and each customer’s needs in this space are very specific,” said Andy Bax, COO of Seaborn Networks. “Seaborn has built a reputation for delivering creative, customer-centric solutions; and our partnership with EdgeUno integrates our capacity/IP solutions into the bare-metal and cloud computing markets with a level of coverage customers can’t find elsewhere.”
Founded by Microsoft, Yahoo!, Terremark Executives
Co-founded in Silicon Valley by former Microsoft, Yahoo! and Terremark executives, EdgeUno provides data center and managed cloud services focused on the Latin American market. EdgeUno entered the market in 2019 by acquiring major Colombian service provider RedUno with the goal of making it simpler to deploy and operate infrastructure across Latin America. EdgeUno has recently expanded its footprint to Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
“These are the types of partnerships we dreamed of when we first started,” said Mehmet Akcin, CEO of EdgeUno. “Our goal has always been to offer users in Latin America the most seamless internet experience possible, and now, thanks to Seaborn, we have more options than ever to help make that happen.”
Seaborn Networks fully operates and maintains its submarine and terrestrial cable infrastructure. PoPs, terrestrial backhaul, landing stations and subsea cable are all under Seaborn Networks’ control, regardless of who the anchor tenant or other customer may be. Seaborn also has its own primary and disaster recovery NOCs.
