Over in Europe, Interoute has been keeping busy on the cloud side of things lately, with a customer win and a new service to offer to the enterprise. While their primary asset has traditionally been their fiber, in the past few years Interoute has poured resources into the datacenter and cloud market in hopes of better addressing the needs of European enterprises.
Advantive, which provides MicroSoft-based ICT solutions, has selected Interoute's virtual data center offering to extend its application development and proudction platform. The move lets Advantive scale its infrastructure to meet customer demand without the hardware costs, saving as much as 30%. That's the classic justification for outsourcing in-house data center infrastructure to the cloud, and still the most convincing one.
And we also got news from Quantix, which Interoute purchased last year and rebranded as Interoute Application Management (IAM). IAM is partnering with Hireserve to add the latter's iCams product suite to its cloud-based SaaS offerings. iCams is an e-recruitment platform that Hireserve sells to enterprises to help manage the recruitment component of human resources. When purchased, IAM was primarily about cloud-based database service, but will clearly be their SaaS delivery vehicle.
