Interoute first global cloud provider to open a local zone in Istanbul, Turkey
Istanbul & London, May 10th 2016. Interoute, owner operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe's largest networks, has today extended its networked cloud platform further into Asia with the opening of an Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) zone in Istanbul. Interoute’s global integrated cloud and network platform is now available in 15 locations globally across 3 continents. The new zone in Istanbul further demonstrates Interoute’s ongoing expansion of its cloud platform and makes it the only cloud provider to offer local cloud in Turkey connected to global cloud zones across the rest of Europe, Asia and North America, from the same platform.
This new Turkish zone creates an opportunity for European businesses to access new users and opportunities for growth in the dynamic business hub that is Istanbul, while businesses in the Middle East and south west Asian markets can easily reach new customers through the low latency, high throughput Interoute Networked cloud. The new Interoute VDC zone also offers local business in Istanbul an alternative to other cloud providers whose zones are solely in the US or Western Europe. This proximity enables applications to be hosted much closer to users in the region, eliminating the need to send data thousands of kilometres back and forth for processing.
Matthew Finnie, Interoute CTO, commented: “Istanbul is major market and a key strategic digital bridge between the Europe, the Middle East and south west Asia. 6 years ago, we expanded our pan European fibre backbone into the heart of Istanbul’s dynamic business hub. This is the foundation we’ve built on to extend our global cloud platform into the region. Businesses, entrepreneurs and developers using Interoute VDC can enjoy the benefits of a high performance cloud close their users, whilst having instant access as part of Interoute’s globally networked cloud platform, to Europe, USA and Asia.”
Interoute VDC is a networked cloud offering both public and private cloud services built straight into Interoute’s vast next generation network. Performance is optimised as data is routed across this global backbone, offering market leading low latencies. The platform supports customer data, software, and digital services alongside existing legacy customer IT hardware, enabling digital transformation and service creation for enterprises.
Interoute VDC has an easy to use online interface or can be controlled via API functionality. Customers can select any of 15 global VDC zones for the storage of their data, giving them complete control of where their files and applications are hosted. Interoute’s networked cloud gives customers free data transfer between zones, making it extremely flexible and cost efficient to create multi-zone compute and data architectures, and to reach multiple markets across the globe. It’s one of the fastest growing global cloud platforms, having opened new locations every year since its launch in 2012. Interoute VDC locations are available in Istanbul, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Geneva, Zurich, London (x2), Slough, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and New York.
