High-Performance Compute (HPC) co-location facility Aegis Data has announced a strategic alignment with cloud infrastructure and services provider vScaler to host its cloud environment within its data centre. The partnership is further supported by Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications (RCOM), which will enable direct access to vScaler’s Cloud Services platform through GCX’s CLOUD X Fusion, delivering NextGeneration application-specific Cloud Services to consumers and enterprises over the GCX Global Network, a statement said here on Wednesday. As part of this strategic partnership, Aegis will provide vScaler with the necessary power and infrastructure requirements that will allow both organisations to capture the increasing demand for scalable HPC-on-demand services from enterprises in the region.
“The three-pronged collaboration will further leverage on GCX’s core assets, which include a global network and a leading ecosystem of on-net clouds and providers, enabling seamless, latency-guaranteed, private connectivity between cloud platforms and data centers, co-location environments, or offices, to reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections,” the statement said.
“The alignment between Aegis and GCX represents one of the most innovative and progressive IT platforms on the market today. Demand for HPC capabilities is growing at a frantic rate, and in meeting the requirements of a diversifying market, it is imperative that we are able to demonstrate that we have the power and connectivity required to support growing data demands,” said David Power, Chief Technology Officer at vScaler.
“The proliferation of HPC has meant that data centre facilities can no longer rely on just providing HPC capabilities as a means to gain a competitive advantage. What is now enabling providers to stand apart is their ability to demonstrate how they can deliver this service more rapidly, smartly and more efficiently than their competitors. Our partnership with GCX and vScaler demonstrates this perfectly-ensuring one of the most powerful HPC propositions available,” said Greg McCulloch, Chief Executive Officer of Aegis Data.
