AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that Resello has selected Interxion as its data centre partner for its pan-European Microsoft Azure Stack deployment. Running on Azure Stack, the Resello Cloud Marketplace now gives resellers the opportunity to deliver value added cloud services with all the scalability and flexibility of Microsoft Azure, without the need for investments in Azure Stack technology or know how, and with the best possible colocation and connectivity services.
Why Azure Stack?
Azure Stack brings all the benefits of Microsoft’s public cloud platform to a customer private data centre environment. The technology is seamlessly integrated with Azure and offers the same user experience and interface, making deployments on Azure Stack just as easy as it is to deploy on Azure.
Customers now have a choice of where to run their data and applications in Azure, either on a dedicated Azure Stack in their private data centre or on Microsoft’s Public Azure or on both.
Resello and Interxion are uniquely positioned to help resellers leverage the benefits of Azure Stack:
- Know-how: Resello is intimately involved in the development of Azure Stack. The company is part of a selected group of global Microsoft Partners that worked closely with Microsoft towards the launch of Azure Stack and is the first Cloud Marketplace that has a fully operational set-up available.
- Seamless integration of public and private: Microsoft’s Azure offering and Azure Stack, will enable businesses to implement the best of public and private cloud into their hybrid strategy. On top of that, Interxion enables Microsoft ExpressRoute via its Cloud Connect platform. This dedicated connection to Azure guarantees customers high performance, security and reliability of their hybrid deployment.
- Freedom of choice on where to store data: Data can be stored in any of Interxion’s 45 state-of-the-art Interxion data centres across 11 European countries. Resellers with customers in many countries now have the control they need over the location of their data to comply with different complex and ever more strict laws for privacy and data.
“Working together with partners like Resello is at the core of Interxion’s strategy,” said Jelle-Frank van der Zwet, Director Business Development at Interxion. “The ability to provide enterprises and IT service providers with proven solutions, based on leading technology, is key to accelerating digital transformation. We’re thrilled that Resello, has chosen to work with Interxion to offer these services and become a frontrunner in the market.”
“Interxion enables us to deliver local Azure Stack deployments from data centres across Europe, ensuring compliance with data protection regulations in different countries, supported by the seamless private connection to Azure using ExpressRoute,” said Resello Founder and CEO Valentijn Borstlap. “But most of all, Interxion has proven itself as a true partner. They have been a great help in enabling Azure Stack availability on our platform across Europe.”
