With zones built locally in one’s country and a total of 17 VDC zones around the world, it lets you place your data and applications close to your users. It is thus an agile, local cloud that gives you a global reach. Furthermore, you can choose between having Interoute VDC delivered as a private cloud service via your corporate VPN or as a public cloud service via the internet – or

both. Interoute VDC also gives users the same control and resource as having an own data centre – without the cost of buying equipment, power or manpower. This flexible architecture allows users to create the perfect, personalised configuration. Last but not least, Interoute VDC combines computing virtualisation in the cloud

with network virtualisation in the ground. With Interoute VDC you do not need to spend time and effort installing and managing firewalls between your virtual data centres and all data traffic is inherently secure as it moves between them. www.interoute.de Interoute Germany GmbH Europarc Dreilinden, Albert-Einstein-Ring 5 14532 Kleinmachnow, Germany info@interoute.de, +49 30 25431-0
