LONDON, February 8, 2017: Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications (RCOM), today announced a partnership with vScaler to enable direct access to vScaler’s cloud services platform via GCX’s CLOUD X Fusion, delivering next generation application specific Cloud services to consumers and enterprises on a global scale.
The collaboration leverages on GCX’s core assets which include a global network with data centers connected in key hubs, and a leading ecosystem of on-net Clouds and providers as well as on vScaler’s cloud platform powered by OpenStack, a leading open source IaaS provider. The joining of the two platforms will enable customers to simplify and accelerate their strategic deployments of cloud by allowing them to provision full HPC-on-Demand clusters, Big Data analytics, accelerated GPU compute (for Machine Learning), tiered and accelerated storage platforms via CLOUD X Fusion, from Global Cloud Xchange.
“We remove the deployment complexity issues presented by OpenStack, and provide our clients with a customised management portal that allows them to manage their entire infrastructure from a single interface,” comments David Power, CTO at vScaler. “In addition to this we provide full application stacks for a range of verticals as well as on-demand consultancy from our expert team. Our tailor-made, software-defined infrastructure cuts away time wasted on the distractions of setup and enables our users to concentrate on the task at hand.”
“As enterprises become more adept at integrating, aggregating and orchestrating Cloud, it is mission critical to have a reliable, secure, and high-performance network connectivity to succeed in this new landscape,” said Mark Russell, President of Europe & Executive Vice Present of Global Sales, Global Cloud Xchange. “Our global Cloud ecosystem will not only simplify infrastructure deployment but also de-risk migration to the Cloud for leading Cloud application providers such as vScaler. We are very pleased to further expand our relationship with vScaler and support their business growth globally.”
CLOUD X Fusion, part of GCX’s CLOUD X portfolio, is a proprietary platform designed to seamlessly combine the speed and power of fiber optics with the agility, flexibility and cost-efficiencies of “pay-as-you-go” Cloud computing; available globally and controlled by a simple-to-use user portal. With CLOUD X Fusion, leading Cloud Service Provider (CSPs) like vScaler can securely and directly connect to GCX’s global Ethernet and MPLS network, putting them only an on-net network port away from customers and partners.
vScaler has been under development for a number of years, orchestrated from a consortium of IT professionals who have recognised the need for a hybrid approach to cloud computing. At its core, vScaler is essentially a cloud platform and service that offers a hybrid approach towards cloud computing, allowing for private cloud adoption and access to a public resource when demand dictates. With vScaler, you can deploy your on premise private cloud in minutes, add cloud-based services or applications, and scale to public or hybrid cloud environments on-demand – all under a single management portal.
