LONDON, March 14, 2017

Telehouse, a leading global provider of data centre services, today announced the launch of Telehouse Cloud Link, a connectivity exchange that provides its customers with private, secure and low latency connections to multiple cloud service providers. The new Cloud Link service is officially available from April 2017 with one of the leading cloud connectivity services, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, through a direct connection in the Telehouse London Docklands campus. Telehouse customers benefit from the ability to procure and manage connections in real time through the dedicated Cloud Link online portal.

Telehouse’s collaboration with Microsoft allows enterprises, and their IT infrastructure partners to seamlessly provision and manage private connections to Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Office 365 using a dedicated and predictable connection. The availability of Microsoft ExpressRoute further enhances the connectivity available at Telehouse London Docklands, already the most connected campus in Europe, making it the ideal environment for enterprises and service providers to build their hybrid IT solutions, and for cloud providers to host part of their infrastructure.

Telehouse customers can provision connections instantly through the online portal, and can scale bandwidth as their business demands. The dedicated IT Operations Centre provides a single point of contact to support our customers’ needs 24/7. Additional cloud service providers are expected to be added to Cloud Link in the near future and this ability to connect to multiple clouds through a single source removes the complexity of traditional network procurement.

Businesses are demanding private and secure connections to the cloud to ensure optimal performance and scalability. According to publisher Data Economy, the rapid adoption of cloud services worldwide has driven the market to grow 25 percent year-on-year and to reach $148 billion in operator and vendor revenues.

Michelle Reid, Sales and Marketing Director of Telehouse Europe said: “We are delighted to support the rapid growth in enterprise cloud adoption with our new Cloud Link service and to collaborate with Microsoft to deliver its cloud connectivity service to our customers via a secure, private connection. Cloud Link demonstrates Telehouse’s ability to offer a highly interconnected infrastructure within its data centres, from which businesses can access new services and grow.”

“The cloud is driving transformation through new business models, global expansion and accelerated innovation,” said Ross Ortega, Partner PM, Microsoft Azure at Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased to team with Telehouse to enhance the experience of our mutual customers.”
