PRESS RELEASE: Orange Business Services connects IXcellerate Moscow One Datacentre to its high-speed multi-service network

17 October, 2013, London, UK & Moscow, Russia: IXcellerate, Moscow’s premier carrier neutral datacenter, today announces that Orange Business Services, a leading global integrator of communications solutions, has established a point of presence in IXcellerate Moscow One Datacentre.

This move creates an access point that connects the datacenter to Orange’s high-speed multi-service network, offering both IXcellerate and Orange customers optimized connectivity, as well as unbeatable scalability. On top of being able to provide national and international telecoms and data network services to its corporate clients from within the Moscow One datacenter, Orange also removes the need for costly metropolitan leased line connections and allowing them direct access to its extensive global network.

We have many financial services clients who are highly focused on service quality and this move will enhance our offering.”

“With our western standard datacenter in Moscow, Orange’s customers can take advantage of the best that is available in datacenter operations in Moscow, whilst focusing on their core business expansion in Russia.” said Guy Willner, CEO of IXcellerate.
