Telia Carrier has announced to offer its Cloud Connect service across 25 TierPoint data centers in the United States. With multiple, geographically diverse connections to the world’s largest cloud providers, including Microsoft, Amazon, Google and IBM, Telia Carrier’s Cloud Connect offering would ease the transition to cloud-based workflows.
Telia Carrier services will now be available in TierPoint data centers across 14 metro areas, including Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Connecticut, Dallas, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Nashville, New York, Omaha, Philadelphia, Raleigh, St. Louis, and Seattle.
Customers in TierPoint’s facilities would also benefit from access to Telia Carrier’s MEF 2.0 certified data center-to-data center Ethernet service, which connects to more than 150 Points-of-Presence (PoPs) worldwide.
“As enterprises continue to entrust their critical business processes to the cloud, direct and secure connectivity which bypasses the public internet becomes vital,” said Staffan Göjeryd, CEO of Telia Carrier. “In partnering with TierPoint, we’re able to bring enhanced global connectivity and our award-winning customer care to many additional new locations, providing the quality of service and performance that enterprise customers expect. We’re really excited about expanding this relationship and in particular, the tangible benefits it will bring to TierPoint’s customers.”
Global Network Backbone
Telia Carrier owns and operates a backbone network with true global reach and provides “critical” network infrastructure, services and cloud connectivity to operators, content providers and enterprises alike. With customers in more than 110 countries, their global network footprint connects more than 265 Points-of-Presence (PoPs) with 65,000 km of fiber across Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.
“This new partnership with Telia Carrier is yet another key step in the process of expanding the connectivity options for clients using our data centers and cloud pods,” said Terry Morrison, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at TierPoint. “It further enhances our market-leading, edge-infrastructure solutions.”
