LONDON -- Interoute, owner-operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe's largest and most advanced networks, will announce the integration of its Global Cloud Infrastructure platform with Rancher Labs’ container management platform, Rancher, at Cloud Expo 2017. This new innovative approach enables enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation and infrastructure investments.

The advent of containers has revolutionised the way enterprises can build, and deploy software applications, bringing greater agility, quicker deployment times and lower operational costs. In the past, Enterprise Operations and Infrastructure teams building new applications and software services had to manage all cloud infrastructure building blocks (the virtual server, OS, and application libraries) necessary to create their application development environment. Using a container based approach enterprise developers can now focus on writing applications and deploying the code straight into a container. The container is then deployed across the underling Interoute cloud infrastructure dramatically improving the time to develop and launch new applications and software.

The Interoute Container platform is part of the Interoute Enterprise Digital Platform, a secure global Infrastructure that combines a Software Defined Core Network integrated into a global mesh of 17 cloud zones, to optimise applications and services. Interoute makes it possible for organisations to integrate legacy, third party and digital IT environments onto single, secure, privately-connected global cloud infrastructure, creating the foundation for Enterprise Digital Transformation.

By integrating Rancher software, Interoute is now able to provide access to a full set of orchestration and infrastructure services for containers, enabling users to deploy containers in any of Interoute’s 17 cloud zones across the world. Rancher is an open-source container management platform that makes it simple to deploy and manage containers in production.

Matthew Finnie, Interoute CTO commented: “Enterprises developing and building apps in the cloud and those on a path to Digital Transformation need Digital ICT Infrastructure that allows them to build, test and deploy faster than ever before. The integration of Rancher software with Interoute Digital Platform gives developers access to a managed container platform, that sits on a global privately networked cloud, enabling true distributed computing.”

Louise Westoby, VP of Marketing at Rancher Labs added, “We’re thrilled to partner with Interoute and provide users of the Interoute Enterprise Digital Platform with a complete and turn-key container management platform. We look forward to seeing those users accelerate all aspects of their software development pipeline, from writing and testing code to running complex microservices-based applications.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
