TeraGo Networks and VMware Come Together to Increase Cloud Adoption in Canada

February 25, 2016

The adoption rate of cloud technology varies around the world, depending on the existing infrastructure and service providers available in the country. But it is still being accessed even in developing countries with limited technologies. Canada has first world infrastructure in place, so the partnership with TeraGo Networks and VMware should have no problems as the two firms look to increase cloud deployments across the country.

TeraGo is one of the largest provider of network, voice, data center, colocation and enterprise infrastructure cloud services, with presence not only in Canada, but also globally. However, its Canadian operations include seven data centers and its own IP network. The company manages more than 3,000 cloud workloads serving over 4,000 business customers in 46 major markets across the country.

With this partnership, TeraGo wants to expand its collaboration with VMware, as it has been a member of the VMware vCloud Air Network for the past six years. This has allowed TeraGo to introduce VMware vCloud related products and services faster to market with the latest technology and updates.

The VMware vCloud Air Network is the largest network of validated cloud services based on VMware technology in the world with over 4,000 service providers located in more than 100 countries.

As part of the network, local providers can offer their customers security and compliance, VMware enterprise-class security and data sovereignty, global cloud services availability and choice of validated cloud services, as well as multiple compliance certifications, managed and application services, and vertical market specializations.

"We have been in collaboration with VMware for several years, especially through the RackForce multi-tenant cloud services based on VMware," said Stewart Lyons, President and CEO of TeraGo. This collaboration will allow us to employ strategies to increase awareness and adoption of cloud across Canada."

The VMware technology, and its own infrastructure lets the Canadian company deliver a range of services, including hosted PBX that gives customers the option of putting their phone switch (PBX) in a managed, secure and reliable cloud environment.

This makes it possible for users to access unified communication (UC) services, advanced functionality, cloud-based interface control, detailed call records and reporting, and the ability to grow with the flexibility and scalability only cloud can provide.

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with TeraGo to provide Canadian customers enhanced VMware-cloud service offerings," said Geoff Waters, vice president, Service Provider Channel, VMware. "TeraGo's VMware based-cloud services can scale to meet the needs of its various customers as they move to the cloud."
