Edge data center pioneer EdgeConneX announced that edge cloud provider Zenlayer will collaborate to bring powerful new edge cloud and networking solutions to enterprises that are proximate to the EdgeConneX global data center footprint.
Zenlayer services include on-demand bare metal cloud, direct connections to all major public clouds and data centers, application acceleration, and managed hosting. Working with EdgeConneX to bring these solutions locally to markets in closer proximity to enterprise locations will help alleviate impediments to cloud adoption related to performance, security, and costs and make it easier to execute on hybrid and multi-cloud strategies.
EdgeConneX has a global data center footprint of over 40 data centers in more than 30 markets around the globe. With Zenlayer, enterprise customers can leverage global networking and cloud solutions to securely migrate workloads to public or private cloud more cost effectively and with enhanced performance due to the reduced latency delivered by these highly proximate (“edge”) hybrid cloud solutions.
“We are excited to partner with EdgeConneX to create improved user experiences and lower latency for their customers,” says Joe Zhu, Zenlayer Founder and CEO. “EdgeConneX data centers offer the perfect platform for us to offer our edge cloud services thanks to their global locations and extensive connectivity. We look forward to expanding access for digital businesses in underserved and emerging markets.”
“Partnering with a leading Edge Cloud Service provider like Zenlayer makes perfect sense for EdgeConneX, as a leading Edge Data Center provider,” adds Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing Officer, EdgeConneX. “Together we are helping bring the cloud to the customer, making it a low latency, high performing, secure and economical offering that is tailored to the customer’s unique requirements locally. For healthcare providers, cloud gaming companies, financial institutions, manufacturers or retailers, or any other enterprise, the benefits of an integrated hybrid, multi-cloud solution brought locally to the edge can have a real impact on their business.”
