Web Host NewsHosting and Cloud Transformation Summit, London – Hexagrid Computing, a leading developer of cloud enablement solutions, announces today that Pourprio is building 13 public clouds on the award-wining VxDatacenter platform as a foundation for an integrated Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) cloud network.

Pourprio, headquartered in France, is a regionally focused enterprise cloud computing services advisor and provider.   The firm is currently in discussions with leading telecom providers to launch 13 public clouds in 12 EMEA countries over the next year, building the region’s first true cloud network.  Using Hexagrid’s VxDatacenter platform, Pourprio offers service providers turnkey cloud solutions that cater to the needs of diverse market segments.

“The Pourprio-Hexagrid union strategically delivers integrated cloud solutions through a distributed network covering the entire EMEA region,” says Suresh Mandava, CEO & Founder of Hexagrid Computing.  “We are excited to support Pourprio in the development and deployment of their unique cloud service offerings.  From IT agility to energy efficiency and interconnectivity, the Pourprio-Hexagrid combination promises to accelerate business expansion by addressing the rapid growth of ICT demand in the region.”

It is estimated that internet users in the EMEA will increase by 2.5 billion users by 2015 and rapid broadband expansion is driving the need for new, local infrastructure to support the extension and introduction of new services throughout the region.  The Pourprio-Hexagrid partnership will support local service providers with an opportunity to enrich their current product portfolios and shorten their time-to-market for information and communications technologies (ICT) solutions.   In addition, this key strategic deployment of cloud technology fosters business confidence and viability within zones of political uncertainty.  Backing-up localized clouds in a centralized safe zone, like Pourprio’s Tier 4 data center in France, enables efficient disaster recovery and business continuity.

”Hexagrid’s VxDatacenter platform has been an asset in Pourprio’s European deployment, allowing very short time to market in expanding our cutting-edge Dynamic Datacenter offering” says Anwar Saliba, Managing Director of Pourprio. “Hexagrid is the perfect partner to enable Pourprio’s public cloud network, with a shared vision to bring high-performance resilient cloud infrastructure to EMEA within a highly competitive pricing structure.”

Together, Hexagrid and Pourprio are attending the Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit in London to unveil this strategic partnership to both the cloud industry as well as major ICT players within the EMEA region.
