Germany-based data-centre neutral internet exchange point DE-CIX has partnered with local data centre infrastructure solutions provider Yotta Infrastructure to install a new point-of-presence at Yotta’s NM1 park in Panvel, near Mumbai.
The PoP, which is an artificial demarcation point between communicating entities, is expected to provide better network performance, low latency, and internet peering services to Internet Service providers in India and abroad.
The partnership is also expected to address low-latency edge requirements to allow for last mile content delivery through a footprint of network nodes across the country.
“Data centres have evolved into the central storage hubs of India's digital economy, and they are now omnipresent for platforms and applications,” said Sudhir Kunder, Country Director - India at DE-CIX India.
Kunder added that the seamless functioning of these services and functioning of applications will depend on interconnection or internet/ cloud peering.
The DE-CIX’s platform will help Yotta’s clients to access local carriers, internet service providers, content and application providers without the need to establish, direct, separate connections with each network.
Some of the cloud providers which DE-CIX’s DirectCloud provides access to are Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud and the likes through a single point of contact.
“Customers looking to establish hybrid multi-cloud environments, running workloads in their private clouds and in multiple public clouds, need not establish costly and complex direct network links to each cloud operator,” said Sunil Gupta, Co-founder and CEO at Yotta Infrastructure.
“Yotta can just cross-connect their private clouds to DE-CIX Cloud port at Yotta NM1 data center, giving them a single hop, quick-to-deliver direct connectivity to multiple cloud providers." Added Gupta.
