Verne Global, a provider of “best-in-class” data center solutions to the world’s most advanced industries, has announced a technology partnership with Símafélagið – an Icelandic telecommunications provider specializing in data connectivity solutions for enterprise customers, to offer dedicated connectivity to the public cloud.
From the Verne Global data center campus in Iceland, Símafélagið provides a private, secured service to interconnect physical infrastructure with cloud based applications and services to leading cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), Google Cloud Platform, Office 365, and Microsoft Azure.
“The enterprise cloud is a powerful tool for organizations,” said Tate Cantrell, CTO of Verne Global. “With access to the cloud, businesses can operate their workloads in locations where they can achieve the best return on investment without limiting options for rapid scale out. Today’s announcement further accelerates the value that companies can gain from our connectivity and computing offerings. CloudLink is the latest example of how Verne Global establishes the best partnerships to put our customers and their connectivity requirements first.”
Verne Global would provide users with dynamically configurable direct interconnects to major public cloud providers. Coupled with access to its power grid with abundant renewable power, Verne Global would offer the right balance of connectivity and computing options for companies looking to scale essential enterprise applications delivered through the public cloud.
Verne Global provides advanced connectivity solutions to over 170 countries through a network of more than 500 carriers and multiple interconnection on-campus points-of-presence. Leading businesses in industries like manufacturing, finance, technology, education, research and science sectors, would meet global access and connectivity requirements through Verne Global.
“An essential part of a successful cloud strategy is ensuring seamless, reliable and secure communication between the cloud and other parts of an organization’s infrastructure while at the same time retaining the flexibility and speed that the cloud offers,” said Ingvar Bjarnason, CTO of Símafélagið. “Our CloudLink product is specifically designed with this in mind featuring flexible connectivity options, self service and streamlined deployment.”
