Service provider Epsilon has joined the Alibaba Cloud partner network delivering on-demand private connectivity to Alibaba Cloud through its Infiny by Epsilon platform across multiple data centre locations in Asia, Europe and North America.
“Alibaba Cloud is a massive player in Asia and has one of the fastest growing public cloud platforms in the world,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon.
“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.
“We are truly providing a platform that reduces the procurement and management of global connectivity and private cloud access from a single source."
The Infiny by Epsilon is a software-defined networking (SDN) platform, giving users on-demand connectivity across the provider’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.
“The global cloud market is evolving rapidly and on-demand connectivity will drive increased cloud adoption around the world,” said Yeming Wang, general manager at Alibaba Cloud EMEA.
“Agile networking enables cloud services to be successful and helps enterprises to scale as and when they need, according to business demand.”
“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."
Partners of Epsilon can gain a direct link into many of the world’s top cloud ecosystems, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and now Alibaba Cloud.
Furthermore, leased line connections established via Alibaba Cloud’s 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.
A strong level of security is also offered as all data is transmitted via private infrastructure, with no risk of being exposed to the internet.
