IPC will act as the preferred vendor for Beeks’ global WAN infrastructure, while Beeks will be the preferred cloud vendor for IPC’s Connexus Infrastructure Services.

Cloud computing and connectivity provider for financial markets Beeks Financial Cloud Group PLC (LON:BKS) today announces a partnership with IPC Systems, Inc. (IPC), a global provider for the financial markets community, delivering secure, compliant communications and networking solutions.

IPC will act as the preferred vendor for Beeks’ global WAN infrastructure, while Beeks will be the preferred cloud vendor for IPC’s Connexus Infrastructure Services, providing infrastructure for IPC’s Connexus Cloud customers. The partnership is set to provide a unique opportunity for customers to benefit from IPC’s market leading network ecosystem and Beeks’ leading financial cloud.

Gordon McArthur, Beeks Financial Cloud CEO, commented:

“Our partnership with IPC for a strategic exchange of services highlights our versatile offering, in supplying solutions to other technology providers that require our capabilities. This collaboration looks to bring advantages to both sides and will consequently bring a more efficient service offering to customers, with a greater range of capabilities.”

In May this year, Beeks said it was growing its portfolio of datacentre locations by deploying in the NY5 New York datacentre of global interconnection and data centre provider Equinix. On top of this, Beeks has extended its current rackspace in Equinix’s LD4 datacentre in London by taking a third cage. With presence in a total of eleven datacentres currently, this move enabled Beeks to continue to increase its offering to customers, supplying the opportunity for further connectivity options to financial exchanges from the new location.
