Arrow adds Interoute Virtual Data Centre to its ArrowSphere online marketplace

Thousands of EMEA resellers now able to offer Interoute's proven, secure and resilient cloud infrastructure

London, 29 January, 2013 - Interoute, owner operator of Europe's largest cloud services platform, is working with Arrow Electronics Inc. to offer its Virtual Data Centre (VDC) on ArrowSphere, a unique online platform that connects cloud service providers with resellers.

Interoute's VDC extends the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings available to resellers through Arrow's Enterprise Computing Solutions segment. With Interoute's VDC now available to Arrow's strong reseller base across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the new alliance will help Arrow resellers meet medium sized enterprise demand for proven, secure and resilient IaaS, without the need to invest in cloud capabilities themselves.

A scalable, fully automated solution, Interoute VDC provides on-demand computing, storage and applications integrated into the heart of an IT infrastructure, giving organisations the same level of physical Data Centre control as over an outsourced virtual environment. Organisations can provision and modify entire ICT solutions on demand, with just a few clicks. Interoute's multiple VDC zones across Europe also allow for the creation of cost effective disaster recovery and highly resilient architectures. Built into the Interoute network, which forms Europe's largest cloud services platform, organisations can choose whether they access Interoute's VDC either over the public Internet, privately as part of their corporate ICT infrastructure, or both.

Matthew Finnie, CTO, Interoute said, "Arrow has a proven track record of excellence in the reseller market. Adding Interoute's Virtual Data Centre to the ArrowSphere online platform is an important development in our strategy to support the channel as it looks to meet the increasing demand for proven, secure and resilient cloud infrastructure."

Eric Taillard, VP Cloud EMEA, Arrow ECS, said, "We are delighted to add Interoute's VDC to the ArrowSphere cloud reseller platform. ArrowSphere delivers an online multi-tier platform that brings together all the elements of the cloud for resellers. Infrastructure-as-a-Service is a critical part of the cloud ecosystem, so adding Interoute's Virtual Data Centre provides additional opportunities for our solution provider community to sell and succeed in the cloud market."

Joel Stradling, Research Director, Current Analysis, said, "Interoute's partnership with Arrow promotes Interoute's cloud-based ICT vision with a new and exciting distribution net. The win-win relation should push sales of Interoute's IaaS proposal, which is automated and runs on top of the provider's strong infrastructure assets, into a broad target market formed by Arrow ECS's vast army of 12,000 value-added resellers."

Transacting since September 2012, ArrowSphere is a channel brokerage platform for cloud services in the European market. Using ArrowSphere, resellers can automatically provision the billing, procurement and delivery mechanisms required to provide Interoute's VDC to customers in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Denmark. The VDC solutions are offered alongside a full range of additional products and services, including infrastructure, software, storage, and security-as-a-service solutions from leading cloud providers. In the coming months, Interoute also plans to extend the alliance with Arrow by adding Storage, Backup and the unified communications solution Hosted Lync to the ArrowSphere platform.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
