Interxion and RStor announce partnership, with eye on storage solutions
London-based company Interxion has today announced its partnership with RStor in a bid to give its customers access to RStor’s performance-based cloud management services.
As a provider of cloud-neutral colocation data centre services, Interxion’s new partnership enables users to leverage backup storage management, disaster recovery and archival of data through RStor’s capabilities as a provider of cloud services across multicloud environments.
‘We are delighted that Rstor has chosen London as their first location with Interxion in Europe and that they are able to launch amid turbulent times,” says Interxion UK managing director Andrew Fray.
“Rstor’s product line up complements our other cloud products and we anticipate that companies in several key sectors of London’s communities of interest, such as law firms, digital media companies and healthcare want and need object storage close at hand.”
Using RStor, Interxion Cloud Connect customers can now deploy scalable network infrastructure and benefit from enterprise performance management across multiple public cloud services providers (CSPs) without vendor lock-in or product complexity.
Customer environments can be connected with cloud service providers through RStor’s fabric technology, which is designed for cloud-native workflows.
A single interface delivers secure cloud storage, where customers can manage and scale data and gain access to multiple cloud storage systems – a key differentiator from tradition CSPs.
Interxion says this system will help users increase innovation and achieve unprecedented cost savings in virtual environments.
Enterprises looking to invest in emerging technology services such as artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics can produce high-performance computing (HPC) environments at Interxion London whilst also taking advantage of RStor’s agile, cloud-agnostic management portfolio.
This new service offering is directly accessible via Interxion’s London campus, where RStor has positioned its first Point of Presence. The service is also available to all customers at all Interxion’s other sites via Cloud Connect.
“We are excited about working with Interxion to bring the RStorage service to customers across Europe,” says RStor chief information officer Conor Malone.
“Interxion provides RStor with the high carrier density and partner ecosystem that enables RStor's storage to be a single cross-connect away from as many of our customers as possible.”
The partnership comes as one of many moves by Interxion to expand its cloud service capabilities, which saw a significant milestone last year when the company announced a ‘mega-merger’ with Digital Reality, worth US$8.4 billion at the time.
The merger was designed to meet the growing global demand from cloud platforms, service providers and enterprises seeking colocation, hybrid cloud and hyperscale data centre solutions.
