Here's a quick roundup of some cloud news from this week before you all go home for the weekend:
Zayo yesterday added a new cloud service to its portfolio. After implementing solutions from VMware, Zayo says it can now deliver a differentiated hybrid cloud solution that uses the same technology both on and off premises. Zayo's cloud business came with the acquisition of Latisys earlier this year. Just where they take that side of the business from here will be a key thing to watch in 2016.
Digital Realty Trust has introduced a direct connection product aimed at another cloud provider. Direct Link Colo will hook up customers in Digital Realty's data center ecosystem to the IBM Cloud, a.k.a. SoftLayer. They are touting latency as low as 1.5ms for hybrid cloud solutions with no third party networks in between. It's in 8 markets around the world initially: Santa Clara, Dallas, Ashburn, London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Singapore, and Melbourne.
And over in Europe, Zettabox is preparing for the next wave of EU regulation. They have launched Zettabox Euro Harbor, taking aim at the problem US corporations will face in handling private consumer data when the GDPR legislation is passed. Via cloud storage with sites in 10 European data centers and a platform already tuned for compliance with the new, stringent regulations, they're clearly hoping to hit the ground running.
