Thursday Roundup: Lumen, Epsilon, Bulk, Everstream, MEF

December 3rd, 2020 by · Leave a Comment

A variety of new services, partners, and certifications from around the world to keep up with:

Lumen has expanded its managed service portfolio with a Data Access Accelerator service. The idea is to enable enterprises and businesses to access files via the network edge, making it all local even when it's distributed around the world. Lumen's network reach and data center footprint enable them to put that sort of thing together in a much more comprehensive way than most.

Epsilon has lined up a new partner to help expand its cloud connectivity services. They have teamed up with Aviatrix to deliver multi-cloud services for enterprises, enabling them to seamlessly move data between the likes of AWS, GCP, Azure, and Oracle Cloud. That ability will complement Epsilon's existing Infiny platform and expand the capabilities of their overall cloud networking efforts.

Bulk Infrastructure has won some business in the financial vertical. A unnamed London-based 'Quant' hedge fund will be putting its high performance computing resources into Bulk's N01 Norway campus. Along with the low cost of compute, Bulk's solution uses renewable energy and added the planting of 1000 trees. The solution was planned and implemented during the pandemic lockdowns in Europe.

And Everstream is the latest company to earn MEF 3.0 certification. They have conducted and passed the tests for 10Gbps Ethernet private line and virtual private line. They are the 4th service provider based in the US to successfully put their Carrier Ethernet services to the MEF's test, and the 27th overall. Everstream recently announced an expansion into Pennsylvania, stretching eastward from its Midwestern footprint.
