The global communications service provider Epsilon has become a part of Alibaba Cloud Partner Network. It will enable Epsilon to deliver on-demand private connectivity to one of the fastest growing cloud platforms in the world.
Alibaba Cloud is connected to Infiny by Epsilon on-demand connectivity platform across several datacenter locations in Asia, Europe, and North America.
Infiny is a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) platform that gives users on-demand connectivity across Epsilon’s Global Interconnect Fabric which includes more than 600 Service Providers, Cloud Service Providers and Internet Exchanges (IXs).
It offers partners a web portal and API-enabled approach to global connectivity that delivers flexible, scalable and high-performance networking from a single unified platform.
“Alibaba Cloud is a massive player in Asia and has one of the fastest growing public Cloud platforms in the world. Our partnership means that we are able to continuously expand our ecosystem of Cloud providers in Infiny, while supporting the rapid adoption of Cloud locally, regionally and across the globe,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon.
“We are truly providing a platform that reduces the procurement and management of global connectivity and private Cloud access from a single source.”
Epsilon allows its partners to directly interconnect with leading cloud service providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. And now, they will be able to connect to Alibaba Cloud as well.
Leased line connections established via Express Connect allows Epsilon customers to activate high-speed, dedicated connectivity to guarantee the stability and reliability of communications and services activated within the platform. Since, all the data is transmitted through private infrastructure, it will provide strong security so that data can’t be exposed to internet.
Founded in 2009, Alibaba Cloud is currently the largest public cloud provider in China. The cloud computing platform of Alibaba Cloud is supported by a network of 49 availability zones across 18 economic centers around the world.
“The global Cloud market is evolving rapidly and on-demand connectivity will drive increased Cloud adoption around the world. Agile networking enables Cloud services to be successful and helps enterprises to scale as and when they need, according to business demand,” said Yeming Wang, General Manager of Alibaba Cloud EMEA.
“We are excited to become a partner in Epsilon’s growing ecosystem of providers. We believe Infiny will contribute to simplifying the Cloud ecosystem and accelerate the growth of new services globally.”
