It's all Greek to Digital Realty

Digital Realty says that ServiceFabric™ is now available at its Athens data center campus in Greece. This extension comes in response to customers' evolving needs to accelerate digital transformation and embrace hybrid IT.

The launch of ServiceFabric™, Digital Realty’s interconnection and orchestration platform, at the company’s Athens campus solidifies its commitment to providing enterprises and service providers with seamless access to the leading cloud platforms in the region. Customers located in Digital Realty's data centers in Athens can now benefit from a multitude of additional interconnectivity services, reducing latency and enabling greater efficiency.

ServiceFabric™ enables businesses to coordinate cloud computing services and interconnect their infrastructure, whether it’s housed in Digital Realty data centers or with other partner platforms. It seamlessly integrates into existing IT management frameworks, extending access to a global network of providers and services. Delivering a "cloud-like" experience, this innovative platform aligns with Digital Realty's customers' needs for connectivity, integrating with public clouds, and facilitating participation in a broader global data meeting place.

The availability of ServiceFabric™ in Athens follows Google’s decision to deploy its first Google Cloud on-ramp in Greece, further strengthening the country's position as an emerging regional cloud connectivity hub. Google Cloud Interconnect facilitates the shortest path to customers' Google Cloud resources, ensuring network traffic remains on the Google global network and never touches the public internet, minimizing the chance of hitting bottlenecks or unexpected increases in latency. Digital Realty provides the physical meeting place where Google Cloud customers and partners can establish direct connections and optimize hybrid IT solutions.

"Digital Realty continues to invest in Greece to facilitate growth, positioning the market as a premier cloud connectivity hub where local enterprises and service providers can interconnect to the leading cloud platforms. With the local deployment of ServiceFabric™ at our Athens data center campus, in addition to the new capacity we've recently added, our customers – and the entire Greek market – can now benefit from faster, more efficient, and more reliable connectivity to their resources on Google Cloud, enabling them to truly embrace hybrid IT," said Alexandros Bechrakis, Managing Director, Digital Realty in Greece.

With the addition of the Athens Campus, PlatformDIGITAL®, Digital Realty's global data center platform, now hosts 18 Google Cloud on-ramps globally including: Athens, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Madrid, Marseille, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna, Zagreb, Zurich (Europe), Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York City, Santiago de Chile, and Sao Paulo (Americas). Customers can interconnect directly in these locations, as well as leverage virtual access to any Google Cloud region via ServiceFabric™ from almost 100 locations worldwide.
