Thursday Roundup: Bulk, HGC, GBI, ConnectBase, MEF

October 5th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Three partnerships and some standards work of note:

Bulk Data Centers and HGC are teaming up to provide a smooth path for APAC businesses to enter and expand in Europe. The partnership pairs Bulk’s data center infrastructure in northern Europe with HGC’s global network reach and its deep relationships throughout APAC. Both companies seek to enable enterprises to make such moves in a sustainable fashion while meeting their own net zero commitments.

Gulf Bridge International is expanding its relationships in Iraq. They have expanded their partnership with Iraq IXP, an internet exchange based in Baghdad. GBI’s low latency subsea connectivity is a key piece of Iraq’s connectivity to the rest of the Persian Gulf’s internet infrastructure.

Connectbase has added another partner to its data ecosystem. Mytra Consulting will leverage Connectbase’s SaaS platform to enable service providers across the connectivity space with business development and sales strategy. Consulting companies certainly need access to the same raw data about existing infrastructure and opportunities that service providers do if they want to provide useful consulting service to them.

And the MEF has launched the first SASE certification path. As always, MEF is looking to standardize the collection of automated technology that is now taking the enterprise market by storm. The MEF 117 framework defines SASE services such that everyone can agree on what it is and how it should work. Meanwhile, the MEF has also launched a blueprint for NaaS services.
