8x8 Expands International Presence With Launch Of Cloud Communications Service Platform At New UK Data Center

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), a leading provider of cloud communications and collaboration solutions, today announced it has signed an agreement with Interxion, (NYSE:INXN), Europe’s leading provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data center services, for interconnection and localization services at Interxion's London data center, home to customers such as NASDAQ and Thomson Reuters.

Interxion operates 34 data centers in 13 cities across 11 countries and houses more than 450 carriers and Internet service providers and 19 European Internet exchanges. With its expansion to the UK, 8x8’s European Union customers will gain the strategic advantage of having their communications needs served through the shortest/best media path based upon their geographic location, ensuring optimal reliability and call quality. In conjunction with the launch of the UK platform, 8x8 is implementing new Geo Routing technology across its network that dynamically routes calls to the nearest data center using location information such as the public IP address of the users.

"The Interxion data center not only enhances 8x8's geographic diversity with increased availability and redundancy, it also provides a local presence for our multinational customers that require a footprint in Europe," said 8x8 Vice President of Network Operations Mehdi Salour. "As our mid-market customer base continues to grow and businesses continue to adopt cloud based services, Interxion's cost-efficient connectivity, outstanding uptime performance and flexibility to quickly scale will be of critical importance to 8x8."

8x8 is seeing growing interest from mid-market customers who are not only increasing their deployment of cloud communications and collaboration solutions in larger, distributed environments within the United States, but are also requiring a local presence internationally, a catalyst for the Company’s strategic Global Reach initiative.

“We are very pleased that 8x8 has chosen Interxion as its European data center partner,” said Douglas Loewe, UK Managing Director, Interxion. “Interxion continues to enable cloud service providers such as 8x8 to deliver enterprise grade solutions to European markets by providing reliable, scalable and well-connected data center services. This expansion by 8x8 reinforces our position as a best-in-class supplier of data center services to the rapidly expanding Enterprise Cloud service provider segment.
