Connectria Taps Epsilon for Cloud Connectivity

Connectria (News - Alert) is using Epsilon connectivity to support its cloud services.

“On-demand connectivity is a key differentiator for managed service providers in the U.S. and will enable Connectria to accelerate its customers’ interconnect requirements and growth in the cloud,” said Epsilon CEO Jerzy Szlosarek. “The company’s broad customer base, traction in key growth markets for cloud services such as health care and financial services, and commitment to customer service and transparency makes Infiny the ideal fit for Connectria as it expands its global reach.”

Epsilon is a global communications service provider. Infiny is the name of its on-demand connectivity platform. It enables businesses to use APIs or its web portal to turn up and manage the connections. And it provides Connectria customers with direct connectivity to other regional and global data centers like Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) and Microsoft Azure.

Established in 1996, Connectria sells cloud computing, custom hosting, and managed hosting solutions. It has more than 1,000 customers in more than 35 countries.

“Connectria supports our customers’ ability to manage and grow their businesses in today’s distributed work environment,” said Connectria President and CEO Rich Waldmann. “Epsilon’s leadership in the communication services industry, the global reach of its network, and the understanding of what it takes to be successful in the highly competitive cloud market make it the ideal partner for Connectria and our customers.”

A report released earlier this week by International Data Corp. indicates that public cloud services accounted for 41 percent of all cloud-related spending last year and that figure is poised to increase to 48 percent by 2021. Managed and professional services related to the cloud are the second largest opportunity in the cloud space, accounting for 31 percent in 2016; that share is expected to remain at around 31 percent through 2021, according to IDC (News - Alert).
