launches

AMSTERDAM – Leaseweb Global, a leading hosting and cloud services provider, today announced the launch of Leaseweb Cloud Connect. A hybrid cloud solution, Leaseweb Cloud Connect enables customers to seamlessly connect their Leaseweb-hosted infrastructure to their public cloud or hyperscaler environment— and to allow sharing of data and applications between them. In partnership with Megaport, a leading Network as a Service provider, Leaseweb Cloud Connect will initially provide connectivity to AWS, with plans already in place to add other leading hyperscalers throughout the rest of the year.

Leaseweb Cloud Connect is designed for businesses that require the flexibility to move workloads between hyperscalers and Leaseweb’s infrastructure in line with changing demands and budgets. Customers will be able to select different connectivity speeds between 100Mbps and 10Gbps, depending on individual project and budget requirements. The new offering provides an elegant, tailored and cost-effective solution to address the lack of customization that many businesses experience when they decide to scale their infrastructure, services, applications, and data within a public cloud environment.


“Leaseweb Cloud Connect provides businesses with an efficient way to build secure networks that interconnect Cloud infrastructures across Leaseweb and public clouds,” said Nikolaos Kolestsas, Product Manager, Leaseweb Global. “The new offering delivers a hybrid cloud solution that allows businesses to use a public cloud for development, PaaS functions, one-off workloads, and big data platforms, all while leveraging Leaseweb for business-critical applications and associated data or specific production environments. Megaport’s Software Defined Network provides the scalable, secure connectivity to cloud onramps to ensure peak performance. This approach minimizes infrastructure costs and increases the speed at which organizations can bring new products and services to market.”

By using Leaseweb Cloud Connect to create a hybrid cloud environment that leverages Leaseweb’s secure and high-performance global network, coupled with a Megaport Connected solution, businesses can develop and distribute their services while gaining more control over their cloud-based infrastructure. Leaseweb Cloud Connect achieves this by providing a fast and secure connection to public cloud, which ensures dynamic and cost-effective allocation of resources across the hybrid cloud environment.

Part of Leaseweb’s Hybrid Connect Concept, Leaseweb Cloud Connect is a Megaport connected solution that is powered by Megaport’s Software Defined Networking technology and integrated with virtual public cloud interfaces and gateways. The Megaport Connected solution offers the broadest reach of cloud onramps across the globe with more than 170 cloud onramps. The collaboration provides Leaseweb with the opportunity to provide greater options to customers in connecting to public cloud infrastructure to design hybrid solutions that scale and perform.

“We are delighted that Leaseweb has chosen our Network as a Service platform to power its new solution,” said Eric Troyer, Chief Marketing Officer at Megaport. “Leaseweb Cloud Connect reinforces Leaseweb’s position within the hybrid cloud provider space and allows Leaseweb to provide an extended Cloud access service to their SMB and start-up customers. We value the partnership with Leaseweb and are excited to be able to support the company’s continued evolution as hybrid and multi-cloud demand continues to grow throughout Europe.”

Leaseweb Cloud Connect is suited to all organizations but offers particular benefits to start-ups and SMBs in the Adtech, Martech, Gaming, and SaaS sectors that are using public cloud providers but are seeking to scale their business—not their costs.

HONG KONG – Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions, announced today the development of a new, carrier-neutral data centre in a purpose-built facility in Hong Kong – to be named Digital Realty Kin Chuen (HKG11). The move marks another significant expansion of PlatformDIGITAL™ across Asia Pacific, closely following the recent groundbreaking of Digital Realty’s new data centre in Seoul, Korea. The Hong Kong facility will enable customers to rapidly scale digital transformation strategies by deploying critical infrastructure with a leading global data centre provider at the heart of a growing community of interest.

Digital Realty entered Hong Kong in 2012 with the acquisition of Digital TKO (HKG10), located within the Tsueng Kwan O industrial estate and capable of delivering up to 18 megawatts of critical IT capacity. The new facility is strategically located in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong’s rapidly developing new data centre cluster and the primary auxiliary location outside Tseung Kwan O, providing the ability to cater to diverse, multi-site workloads. Upon completion, the new, 21,000 square-metre building will deliver up to 24 megawatts of critical IT capacity.


The new data centre will support the continued development of Hong Kong as a key technology and data hub and drive the adoption of cloud computing services and solutions across the region. The facility is expected to be built out and ready for global and regional customers by mid-2021.

“Our investment in Hong Kong is another important milestone on our global platform roadmap, enabling customers’ digital transformation strategies while demonstrating our commitment to supporting their future growth on PlatformDIGITAL,” said Digital Realty Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein. “As we continue to expand in Asia, the launch of our second facility in Hong Kong underscores its importance as a major data hub, providing customers with the coverage, capacity and connectivity requirements to support their digital ambitions.”

The HKG11 facility will be built up to a total of 12 floors, eight of which will be dedicated for customer deployments. The new facility will also offer superior connectivity through close access to various facilities-based operators.

“Hong Kong is a regional leader in cloud readiness and has significant potential for further cloud adoption along with a strong base of customers with an appetite for digital technologies,” added Mark Smith, Managing Director, Asia Pacific for Digital Realty. “We are delighted to launch our new facility, which will go a long way towards meeting the rapidly growing demand and bringing value to customers across the region, especially from China.”

Hong Kong is well placed among Asian cities in terms of cloud readiness. The city claimed the top spot in the recent Cloud Readiness Index (CRI)1 based on cloud infrastructure, security, and regulation, according to the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA). The index found that Hong Kong is already a strong regional performer in fundamental readiness areas such as cloud regulation and infrastructure. An opportunity exists for the city to strengthen areas such as cloud governance and security to spur broader and faster cloud adoption, according to the study.

Digital Realty is one of the world’s largest owners, developers and operators of highly reliable data centre facilities. The new Hong Kong development will strengthen Digital Realty’s presence within the Asia Pacific region, where the company currently operates a network of industry-leading data centres located in Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne and recently broke ground on its first facility in Seoul, currently scheduled to open for customers by the end of 2021.

CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND AND SAN JOSE, CA – Bamboo Systems, a provider of transformative Arm®-based servers, today announced the availability of its newest systems, the B1000N Series, based on a revolutionary new system architecture, Bamboo PANDA™.

Bamboo Systems’ patent-pending Parallel Arm Node Designed Architecture (PANDA), is a revolutionary new approach to server design, crafted to meet the demands of both modern software structures and the challenge of energy-hogging data centers. PANDA-based servers use embedded systems methodologies designed to run modern microservices-based workloads while consuming minimal energy and delivering industry-leading density for high throughput computing. Kubernetes-based applications, edge computing, data analytics and AI/ML deployments are solutions that are well suited for Bamboo.


Bamboo’s PANDA-based systems utilize Arm processors and deliver individually balanced servers by reducing many of the well-known traditional server architecture bottlenecks, often caused by very large processors having to share limited resources. Each B1000N system can be configured with either one or two blades in 1U, with each blade containing four compute nodes and a non-blocking embedded L3 switch exposing dual 40Gb QSFP uplink ports. Each compute node is an independent Arm-based server capable of running Linux, or other compliant operating systems. Nodes use a SolidRun COM Express Type 7 module utilizing the NXP®Semiconductors Layerscape LX2160A with 16 Arm Cortex®-A72 processors with up to 64GB of DDR4 ECC DRAM, hardware accelerated dual 10Gb/s network interfaces and an integrated PCIe NVMe drive, up to 8TB.

A fully configured B1008N consists of 8 servers providing 128 cores, 16 DDR4 memory channels to 512GB DRAM, 24GB/s to 64TB of NVMe storage, fed through 160Gb/s network bandwidth – all in a single rack unit – at approximately 50% of the cost of a traditional Intel-based server.

Bamboo servers include a web-based interface, the intuitive Pandamonium™ Management Software, based on Bamboo’s REST API for integration with orchestration platforms. Pandamonium provides control over system configuration, status updates of components, and the ability to power off individual compute nodes if they are not being used, enabling additional energy savings.

B1000N Series benefits include:

  • Typical savings of 50% of acquisition cost as compared to equivalently configured x86 systems
  • Up to 75% less energy consumption
  • Up to 80% less rack space used
  • Directly attached NVMe flash storage to every application processor to reduce the need for large amounts of DRAM or network bandwidth, delivering high performance throughput to large locally cached datasets
  • Integrated NIC with hardware encryption/decryption and compression/decompression offloading work from the application processor​
  • Dedicated network resources for each node
  • Significantly reduced external switch and cable management​ costs
  • Balanced system resources deliver the computing infrastructure for high-throughput and modern microservices-based software designs

“The x86 system architecture hasn’t particularly changed since the 1980’s and can no longer cope with the demands of modern application workloads or data center energy challenges,” said Tony Craythorne, chief executive officer, Bamboo Systems. “Without the constraints of legacy designs, we are able to deliver servers that are built for today’s microservices-based software, but which consume a fraction of the energy of traditional systems. This enables compute densities never before seen and for a far less cost than that of legacy x86 systems. Our servers are the future of data center and enterprise computing.”

The B1000N starts at under $9,995 and will be available in the USA and Europe in Q3.

About Bamboo Systems
Our mission is to revolutionize server architecture to meet the demands of modern software design while disrupting the status quo on energy consumption. Bamboo servers are optimized for microservices-based software making them ideal for high performance workloads and processing at the edge, while saving one-half the typical acquisition cost of a legacy server, 75% of the energy consumption, and 80% of the rack space.
