IXcellerate expands Digital Silk Road with Zenlayer

Zenlayer and data center operator IXcellerate have signed an agreement to collocate IT infrastructure and create a disaster recovery site for data storage and processing in Russia.

Zenlayer is reinforcing its presence in Russia as an important part of its global backbone and overall network strategy – its three Moscow points of presence are a testament to its ongoing investment in the region. As more SMBs and large enterprises turn toward global expansion, Zenlayer endeavors to help them drive maximum business efficiency with its SD-WAN and Cloud Connect solutions. Moreover, Zenlayer’s corporate standards require backup data centers to ensure cloud infrastructure reliability and sustainability. Through its private global backbone, Zenlayer manages networks and global resources located in more than 100 data centers around the world, allowing it to deliver services to most of the world’s Internet population in 25 ms or less.

IXcellerate was selected as partner of choice by Zenlayer as a result of extensive market research and evaluation, as well as for the presence of the independent internet exchange platform, Eurasia Peering IX, in the data center.


“With IXcellerate, we found a trustworthy IT partner whom we can rely on when implementing our plans in Russia, and who has clearly demonstrated its advantages during the installation phase. We greatly appreciate the presence of a dedicated APAC team and IXcellerate’s expertise in working with clients from Asia. Russia’s cloud services’ growth rates are significantly above global average, and we see great potential to connect its underserved areas and fast-track global connectivity,” says Joe Zhu, Founder and CEO of Zenlayer.

Guy Willner, CEO of IXcellerate, adds: “The Russian IXcellerate team is focused on systematic work with major international clients, especially with enterprises from the Asia-Pacific region. We are grateful for the trust of global corporations and are doing everything we can to ensure their journey along the Digital Silk Road is smooth sailing.”
