Reliance Communications’ enterprise arm Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) has launched Cloud X platform in Sydney, Australia.
“Cloud X is changing the paradigm of cloud computing. The Network must now undergo a profound transformation, from a static entity, to a dynamic, intelligent, application-aware fabric that can support multiple traffic requirements, diverse geographies and flexible pricing models,” Bill Barney, Chief Executive Officer, Reliance Communications (Enterprise) and Global Cloud Xchange, said.
The telco said that the delivery of its Cloud X platform in Sydney, will enable enterprise customers across Australia to have on-net access to leading public cloud platforms including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Softlayer, Google, Rackspace, VMWare and more than 20 others worldwide, as well as software services like Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps for Work.
The Cloud X is an enterprise-class platform that delivers applications and content across the company’s privately owned global fiber optic network.
“GCX’s Cloud X orchestration portal will not only simplify infrastructure deployment but also de-risk migration to the Cloud for our customers in ANZ,” said Dave Pearson, Managing Director, Global Cloud Xchange ANZ.
Last November, GCX announced the expansion and upgrade of its Global Network across Australia and New Zealand with four new Points of Presence (PoPs) in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland, providing enhanced coverage and increased diversity to address the growing demand for premium global connectivity in the region.
