Technology partnerships and cloud connectivity were definitely on the menu for data center and cloud operators this week:
Fujitsu has signed a strategic partnership with CyrusOne for its K5 cloud service. The cloud computing platform is being hosted at CyrusOne's data center in Carrolton, Texas, where the rest of the ecosystem will be able to take advantage of it. K5 is aimed at enabling the development and deployment of new cloud-native applications.
Telehouse has brought its multi-cloud connectivity exchange Cloud Link to the USA, after initially being in the EMEA region. The platform offering direct connectivity to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and Telehouse's own internet exchanges in New York and LA.
Verne Global has unveiled a technology partnership with Símafélagið. I'd ask how to pronounce that, but then people might expect me to get it right. The arrangement will offer dedicated connectivity to the usual suite of public clouds from Verne Global's data center campus in Iceland via Símafélagið's CloudLink technology.
Interxion has expanded its Cloud Connect interconnection service down to its Marseille campus. That puts it at twelve of the company's thirteen data center campuses across Europe, from which customers can access AWS Direct Connect, Micrsoft ExpressRoute, and other connectivity options.
And Megaport has launched its Megaport Exchange marketplace. The platform will connect providers to enterprise customers around the world via the company's portal.
