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.

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.
