Offshore cloud service provider Calligo announced on Thursday that it has partnered with Manx Telecom, a telecommunications company based in the Isle of Man, to provide pan-jurisdictional cloud services.
Calligo was founded in 2012 to bring virtualization and cloud services to offshore jurisdictions. Its CalligoCloud Network includes data centers in Jersey and Guernsey, two islands off the coast of Normandy, France.
According to a statement, Calligo said the partnership will support the growing demand from developing markets for services such as offshore cryptocurrency. With privacy of paramount concern for companies hosting data in the cloud, offshore options could become more popular.
In a recent interview with the WHIR, Bahamas hosting provider Secure Hosting said that companies should consider carefully whether or not they want their data to be hosted in the US, and to do their due diligence.
“It was critically important for us that we partnered with an organization that shared our commitment to security and operational excellence,” Calligo chief commercial officer Andrew Wicks said. “Both organizations have world class in-house skills for cloud deployments, making the integration of our two clouds simple, straightforward and elegant. This partnership extends the reach of our offshore cloud, which can only be of benefit to existing and future clients.”
An existing Manx Telecom cloud client, Assured Communications, said that it is looking forward to benefiting from the pan-island services from Manx Telecom and Calligo.
“Since using the Manx Telecom’s hosting and cloud services this year we have been really impressed with the level of service and the quality of the platform,” Nicholas Grove, head of Innovation and Strategic Development at Assured Communications said.
“We are now really keen to use the pan island services that Manx Telecom and Calligo have created through their partnership and subsequent cloud integration. We view this as a really strategic development for our offshore jurisdiction strategy and something that is way ahead of the other providers,” Grove said.
