Virtus has announced today the launch of Connectivity-On-Demand services at its LONDON1 facility. The Connectivity-On-Demand services allow customers to increase or decrease their committed interconnect bandwidth on short notice or to use IP transit based on a totally flexible ‘consumption only’ based model.
Connectivity-On-Demand enhances the portfolio of ‘carrier neutral’ connectivity services already present in Virtus’ data centres and offers IT and Cloud Service providers, Enterprise IT and Media customers flexible connectivity options designed to meet their business requirements and align their revenues with their overheads.
Connectivity-On-Demand services offer significant benefits and cost savings compared to the standard connectivity model which ties customers into fixed contract terms (minimum one or typically three year contracts), with no possibility to shorten the term or flex the bandwidth without incurring very heavy costs due to cancellation of the service.
Commenting on the new Connectivity-On-Demand services, Neil Cresswell, CEO of Virtus said: “I am delighted to be able to announce the launch of Connectivity-on-Demand services at LONDON1; another addition to the Virtus Intelligent Data Centre portfolio. Virtus understands that our customers’ IT business requirements are continually evolving and these new services are part of our commitment to providing the most flexible and efficient data centre solutions in the best eco-efficient ‘carrier neutral’ facilities in London.
“We aim to continue to innovate in-line with and beyond the way businesses of all types deploy and acquire data centre and connectivity services, to ensure we exceed our customers’ expectations in quality, flexibility, service and value,” Cresswell added.
