Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a Reliance Communications’ subsidiary, has signed a master services agreement (MSA) with Switzerland-based data centre co-location provider Safe Host. Under the agreement, the Indian company will provide a host of services including co-location facilities, cloud and other products and services to Safe Host.

Following the agreement, Safe Host’s customers will get direct access from its data centres in Switzerland to emerging markets through GCX’s global network infrastructure.

“The Swiss business ecosystem is undergoing significant transformation with the rise of digital economy, advances in technology convergence, as well as the rapidly growing tech-savvy population, and it is mission critical to have a scalable and reliable infrastructure to capitalise on the next wave of globalisation,” said Mark Russell, Managing Director, GCX International.

“Our partnership with Safe Host enables Swiss enterprises to tap business opportunities in the fast-growing emerging markets over our Global Network as well as leading Cloud providers via GCX CLOUD X platform.”

Following this partnership, enterprises in Switzerland will now have access to many of these telecommunications hubs across the globe, from the developed markets in the U.S. and Europe to the key emerging markets in the Middle East and Asia, including India and China.

“Today, data centre facilities are becoming increasingly critical in not only hosting Cloud environments, but also providing the necessary access and connectivity into those platforms,” said Gérard Sikias, CEO of Safe Host. “Our partnership with GCX means that we can provide high-performance global reach into our data centres, strengthening our ecosystem and supporting the digital strategy of our customers across multiple industries.”
