Web hosting company, Crucial Paradigm, has moved into global data centre services provider, Equinix’s new SY3 International Business Exchange (IBX) datacentre in Sydney.
The move will enable Crucial Paradigm to deliver an expanded range of Equinix’s cloud services to its managed service provider customers.
It will allow the company to control new HP Blade servers and high power density of up to 8kVA presented in the SY3 datacentre, to offer their clients an increased range of services, greater flexibility and on-demand scalability.
Using the secure, high-connectivity and power-dense datacentre environment, Crucial Paradigm can offer cloud hosting solutions to enable managed service providers to resell cloud services and improve business performance.
According to Crucial Paradigm director of sales and marketing, Ijan Kruizinga, the growth of the managed services sector has caused a demand from managed service providers to resell cloud services to their customer base.
“Platform Equinix enables us to package a solution that allows MSPs to boost their product offering and open up new revenue streams with a range of new, valued-added services delivered through the cloud,” he said.
The company stated that Equinix’s credentials in energy efficiency was another reason for extending the partnership.
The new SY3 IBX data centre was officially commissioned in August this year. Built at a cost of $US65 million, phase one of the facility offers 1000 cabinet equivalents that is expected to expand to 3000 with subsequent phases.
