Global infrastructure and connectivity provider NetActuate has added Dubai to its enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center locations, enabling businesses to build or expand their own infrastructure with NetActuate’s cloud, connectivity, and co-location services.
The company has decided to set up in Dubai based on the potential of the strategic, growing Middle East market. The new location helps grow its global footprint to ensure a faster, more reliable experience for customers’ end users, it said.
As the first carrier-neutral data center established in the Middle East, NetActuate’s Dubai location is visualized as a hub for international business. The company says that as a strategic network aggregation point, this data center can provide low-latency connectivity both locally to the UAE, as well as across the entire MENA region. The enterprise-class facility features multi-factor security, redundant power and cooling, and direct connectivity to the UAE Internet Exchange (UAE-IX).
The location is connected to NetActuate’s global network – one of the top five largest in the world by number of peers. Businesses can leverage low-latency connectivity to more than 3,500 peers and 33 data centers worldwide to bring their applications and services closer to their customers, the company said. Additional capacity upgrades and new locations in EMEA are planned for 2019.
