Circle B, a leading OCP solutions provider in the Netherlands, recently announced its strategic partnership with DCspine, a leading digital connectivity network provider with a well-established network of dark fiber to connect hybrid colocations and offer rapid and enhanced carrier neutral connectivity across the Benelux and Frankfurt in response to a strongly increasing need for compute and storage.
The partnership will enable customers to seamlessly connect their existing infrastructure to other datacenters right off the bat, over a software-defined network through DCspine’s redundant dark fiber and Circle B-maincubes’ datacenter facilities that focus on Open Compute. In addition, this will save the customers their time and effort to quickly connect to their datacenters seated at distant locations in the Netherlands, with low latency in the data transmissions. The connectivity convenience will also be more pronounced as the datacenters anywhere across the Netherlands can be provisioned across a single line allowing mirroring of servers. This is possible as the companies together provide a framework through which the workload can be split across different datacenters which can be used to backup data in case any specific datacenter is obstructed.
"With this partnership, customers in the Benelux region and Frankfurt will benefit from easy access to efficient storage and compute resources based on Open Compute, as they will be able to access Circle B services at all DCspine datacenters. This is highly relevant to a growing number of customers that opt for infrastructure as a service instead of managing their own equipment, allowing them to focus on their core business." Bram de Schepper Account Director at Eurofiber - DCspine
"Adding DCspine’s services to the Circle B portfolio strengthens our core proposition of scalability and flexibility." indicates Vinita Arora, sales manager at Circle B. "Circle B partnering with DCspine means that businesses have easy and flexible access from almost any datacenter in the Benelux region to our rack-scale Open Compute Project based infrastructure solutions that we provide from our first PoP at maincubes AMS01 in Amsterdam. This for example allows for customers running a dual-datacenter or easy expansion fully managed and supported by Circle B on-site datacenter engineers." Menno Kortekaas, CTO at Circle B.
With the rapid data generation by various business setups across different industries, there is a surging need to reduce the data complexity of these businesses which would no longer be sufficed by the traditional network architecture. The partnership between Circle B-maincubes and DCspine will foster a robust digital infrastructure as the partnership will leverage the benefit of OCP based datacenters being linked together through the region’s leading interconnectivity provider.
