Exponential-e selects Nuage Networks from Nokia to introduce plug & play, self-service offering based on Software Defined Networking
London, UK – 21st September 2016 - Exponential-e, the British cloud and network provider, has announced the introduction of Cloudnet, a new, flexible self-service offering allowing enterprises to connect their business sites with their business applications. Nuage Networks from Nokia has been selected as the partner for this new service. Using its private cloud network, delivered through a single piece of fibre, Exponential-e will offer greater efficiency and automation by enabling enterprises to directly connect their business internet to hosted and third party applications and network services.
“Our continued investment in innovative and automated services using SDN and NFV, underpins our future growth strategy for cloud services,” said Chris Christou, director of engineering at Exponential-e. “To give our customers the best possible service availability, support and performance for their business critical applications, they must have very flexible and automated access to applications in data centres under their own control.”
The increasing demand in cloud services is driving demand for greater automation that delivers a premium customer experience while allowing organisations to control, scale and deliver services more quickly. Using Nuage Network’s powerful plug-and-play solution, Exponential-e will introduce automation from the network branch to the applications in the data centre so that organisations can reconfigure cloud and connectivity services on demand through a simple self-service interface. Setting up a connection at a new location can be done in no time, using Exponential-e’s smart connectivity or third party access.
“Exponential-e is known in the market for its innovation and customer focus,” said Nuage Networks founder and chief executive officer Sunil Khandekar. “Exponential-e realizes that the nature of connectivity itself is changing because of the cloud and that branch office connectivity has to be bundled with automating the cloud, and that’s what the Cloudnet offering is all about.”
The new Exponential-e cloudnet service is the topic of an operator perspective presentation during the SD-WAN summit conference in Paris (http://www.uppersideconferences.com/sd-wan/).
Exponential-e is a British cloud and connectivity pioneer with a difference. Its cloud services do not traverse the public Internet. Instead, they reside (logically) on a customer's LAN, on the clean side of the firewall so security and privacy concerns are negated. Exponential-e wholly owns a super-fast 100 Gigabit Ethernet Layer 2 VPLS Network that guarantees a superior level of resilience, reliability and performance. Exponential-e also integrates with third party providers and bespoke applications for both the Enterprise and SMEs with an end-to-end SLA.
That’s why it’s trusted by over 2,800 customers, boasts 96% customer reference-ability, features in the London Stock Exchange's Top 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, and is included in Investec’s Top 100 fastest growing UK Mid-Market companies.
Exponential-e's services are delivered down one pipe, enabling 100% network visibility and control. The company has demonstrated the highest levels of compliance with industry standards and has been awarded seven ISO accreditations including the highly coveted cloud Security Alliance STAR. Exponential-e’s product portfolio includes services for cloud & IT, Unified Communications, Networking, Data Centres and Managed IT Services.
