PCCW Global, the international operating division of Hong Kong operator HKT, and Global Switch, an owner, operator and developer of carrier and cloud neutral data centers in Europe and Asia-Pacific, have announced the launch of a Console Connect point-of-presence (PoP) at Global Switch’s Tai Seng data center in Singapore. The Console Connect Software-Defined Interconnection (SDI) platform is designed to enable connectivity to cloud-based applications, partners, client IT infrastructure and cloud hosting services.
According to PCCW Global, the platform currently interconnects over 100 data centers in 36 countries on the PCCW Global MPLS network. Through the Console Connect SDI platform, Global Switch customers in Singapore will be able to access connectivity on-demand to a global network of data center ecosystems and cloud on-ramps through a single dashboard interface, including Alibaba Cloud, AWS Direct Connect, Google Interconnect, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, QingCloud and Tencent Cloud.
The Global Switch data center at Tai Seng in Singapore has a number of submarine cable systems landing directly at the facility, and has direct links with Global Switch Singapore Woodlands, which was launched earlier this year.
