NetFoundry, a company enabling businesses to instantly connect distributed applications in any cloud, on any device, anywhere, has announced deployment of its SDN-based (Software Defined Network) elastic interconnection services in EdgeConnex facilities across their global data center footprint.
By collaborating with application-specific connectivity enablers like NetFoundry, EdgeConneX would help enterprises maximize the benefits, while at the same time minimize the impediments and concerns of using the cloud. With private, dedicated access to leading cloud providers from EdgeConneX data centers via the NetFoundry platform, users would have the peace of mind of a “flexible and high-performance” networking solution.
“Whether it’s cloud, IoT, or SaaS applications, proximity increasingly matters for both service providers and end users, so having NetFoundry’s solution available at the Edge will benefit both” said Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of EdgeConneX.
The first market that this NetFoundry SDN-based interconnection service will be available is in Portland, OR. Further expansion across the EdgeConneX data center network of ‘edge data centers’ is planned for later in the year and in 2019.
“It’s important for enterprises to have readily available access to cloud service providers,” said Galeal Zino, CEO of NetFoundry. “NetFoundry’s collaboration with EdgeConneX is a major milestone toward enhanced connectivity at the Edge of the network, bringing direct cloud access where it’s needed most. Our software-only, global platform drives cloud adoption throughout the enterprise community with unmatched agility and simplicity. We look forward to providing EdgeConneX customers the necessary means to achieve instant, fast, and reliable connectivity to mission-critical cloud services.
