EdgeConneX®, the pioneer in Edge Data Centers®, is working with Lume to bring the best in cloud solutions to mid-market and enterprise businesses operating at the Edge. With the IoT, 5G and other innovative applications challenging traditional centralized data center models, this partnership intends to help solve for many common cloud adoption challenges. Now, EdgeConneX customers can leverage Lume’s Cloud Anyware™ service suite to deploy highly proximate dedicated private, virtual private, hybrid and on-premise cloud solutions. The news comes as EdgeConneX enhances its portfolio of leading cloud solution partners.
“The Edge is not so much a place as it is a way of architecting the Internet to be responsive to businesses’ needs for localized network peering, data acquisition, compute processing and storage as close as possible to their end-users,” says Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing Officer at EdgeConneX. “Whereas long-standing cloud service offerings are often clustered and centralized in design, our partnership with Lume distributes diverse cloud solutions locally, exactly where businesses need them. We’re excited about our partnership with Lume because it supports us in accomplishing a critical goal – bringing the Cloud to the Edge, local and highly proximate to enterprise customers.”
“We value our partnership with EdgeConneX, a true pioneer in edge data center development and innovation,” states Josh Rhine, Chief Marketing Officer at Lume. “Location matters and being at the “Edge” is important to our customers. It decreases latency, can help meet compliance requirements and provides geographically diverse locations for colocation, cloud solutions, and disaster recovery environments. EdgeConneX footprint of data centers allows us to add even more locations for deploying our Cloud Anyware™ solutions and gives our customers more options for selecting the right data center location, and help define what the ‘cloud’ means for them.”
As companies increasingly leverage hybrid cloud deployments and applications like Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, they have a pressing need to circumvent distance, capacity and centralized processing constraints. As other big-name enterprise software companies like VMware also move to upgrade Edge cloud portfolios, the EdgeConneX – Lume collaboration is a strategic move that reinforces their position as go-to providers of Edge-aware Internet architecture.
