VanillaIP has recently announced City Lifeline as a new London data centre partner. This additional capacity is necessary to meet exploding demand for VanillaIP’s Hosted UC and IP Trunking solutions, powered by their Uboss technology management platform. Uboss is a web based portal that empowers wireless, wireline and application service providers by consolidating and simplifying back office provisioning and billing functions. In this way Uboss helps to maximise revenue and improve differentiation by getting Service Providers to market quicker with a more sophisticated product offering.
The new agreement is for two years and will see VanillaIP take two racks in Lifeline House, City Lifeline’s flagship central London data centre facility. The high level of flexibility offered by City Lifeline was a deciding factor in meeting VanillaIP’s demanding requirements. VanillaIP is also making use of City Lifeline’s THN data communications interlink with Telehouse North, allowing it to easily share critical data across the two data centre sites.
David Dadds, managing director of VanillaIP, comments: “These new City Lifeline colocation racks were needed to meet unprecedented growth on our platform and ensure we have sufficient capacity following our launch into North America this month. Because we offer Uboss as a SaaS model to tens of thousands of businesses worldwide, there really is no such thing as “off-peak” and City Lifeline operations team gave us great confidence that we can meet even the most demanding customer requirement.
Roger Keenan, managing director of City Lifeline comments: “We are delighted to have VanillaIP on-board in City Lifeline as another data centre cloud partner. They are a long established cloud provider and a technology supplier trusted by their Service Provider customers. This agreement is a validation of the work we have done in extending our carrier neutral data communications by linking to Telehouse and our commitment to face-to-face personal service. We’re extremely proud to be working with VanillaIP and look forward to sharing in their success in taking customers to the cloud.”
