XaaS Providers Flock to Interconnection Provider Console Connect in 2017

Interconnection Provider Grows X-as-a-Service Ecosystem by 130 Percent in Q1 2017 as XaaS Providers See Two-In-One Benefit of Direct Connection

LAS VEGAS--()--Channel Partners Expo – For as-a-service (XaaS) solutions to be cost-effective at scale in the enterprise, the accessibility of their platforms must be as reliable as their pricey on-premise counterparts. That’s where the public internet has fallen short, with variations in reliability and performance restricting XaaS adoption. As XaaS providers look for an alternative to the public internet, the unique two-in-one benefit of Console Connect’s direct connection ecosystem has made it the channel of choice, resulting in a 130 percent growth in Console Connect’s XaaS ecosystem in the first quarter of 2017 alone.

Two-in-one benefit – Instant internet bypass for XaaS users, and an ecosystem of potential customers

Not only is Console Connect the only platform with single-click direct connect provisioning over Layer 3, it opens the gateway to a potential ecosystem of thousands of users, partners and other providers. That means greater security and reliability through direct connections that completely bypass the public internet, and new growth opportunities offered by the Console Connect ecosystem.

“A new avenue to user growth”

“The ability to offer our customers access to our StudioCloud as-a-service platform directly, securely and without the risks or unpredictability of the public internet is extremely valuable,” said Darren Sharpe, VP of Sales at Scalar. “But, equally as valuable is the access to thousands of potential users already making use of Console Connect’s more reliable interconnection offering. That shortens the potential customer journey and offers us a new avenue to user growth.”

“A critical value-add to the enterprise”

“The public internet is one of the biggest challenges for IaaS companies like ours,” said Cortney Thompson, CIO and co-founder, Green House Data. “The Console Connect ecosystem lets our customers directly connect not only to their Green House Data cloud, but also to other XaaS providers on the Console platform. That allows us to provide a critical value-add to the enterprise, as the public internet’s reliability continues to fall in the face of increasingly complex and data-heavy application demands.”

“Well-placed to build on our ecosystem expansion”

“As XaaS partners have discovered the two-in-one benefit of the Console platform, we’ve been able to grow our ecosystem by 130 percent in the last quarter alone,” said Jef Graham, CEO, Console Connect. “Our unique proposition of instant direct connection provisioning over Layer 3, combined with the access to an ecosystem of potential new customers, means that Console Connect is well-placed to continue this stellar growth as XaaS providers look to differentiate their offerings and grow their user base.”

The Console Connect team is at Channel Partners Conference & Expo from April 10-13 at the Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, sharing more information on the benefits of the Console interconnection platform. To arrange a meeting, or for more information, visit the Console Connect website.
