We are playing a mission-critical role in enabling Cloud and content to grow without borders,” said Hany Aly, Executive Vice President Enterprise Business at du. “Our team developed the Middle East’s most successful partner marketplace and now we are solving new and emerging challenges for global business.”
datamena has deployed DE-CIX’s Appollon Advance platform to enable hyper-scalability and Cloud exchange features alongside its global peering services. datamena will connect its UAE-IX to DE-CIX’s Mumbai IX and DE-CIX Marseille to enable remote peering between three major IXs in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Interconnect partners at each IX will be able to seamlessly peer with new partners in each region, bringing the content and Cloud closer to end users.
With this Global Interconnection Platform not only Middle-east networks would get access to South Asia and Europe but also vice versa. The Middle East hosts no. of Indian Expats, with now Dubai, Mumbai & Marseille being connected the latency will improve for users in the Middle East seeking Indian Content & routes.

In the coming months, we will be announcing new partnerships, customers and hubs in Europe, Africa and Asia. It is a bold move for our business but organisations across Asia, Africa and Europe are asking us to bring our ecosystem to their regions and we will deliver for them just like we have in the Middle East.”
