Cloud communications and collaboration solutions provider 8x8 has signed an agreement with cloud and colocation services provider Interxion. Interxion caters to companies such as NASDAQ and Thomson Reuters and is recognized as Europe's leading player in the cloud and colocation arena. The company owns and manages 34 data centers in 11 countries. It also caters to 450 carriers and Internet service providers and 19 European Internet exchanges.

Established in 2004, 8x8, Inc.'s solutions include hosted PBX telephony, unified communications, call center software, video conferencing and virtual desktop services. The company caters to a broad customer base with increased activity from "mid-market customers" that deploy cloud communications and collaboration solutions within the United States, but who also need an international presence. Its agreement with Interxion gives its European Union customers the benefit of the "shortest/best media path based upon their geographic location".

"The Interxion data center not only enhances 8x8's geographic diversity with increased availability and redundancy, it also provides a local presence for our multinational customers that require a footprint in Europe," explained Mehdi Salour, Vice President of Network Operations at 8x8. "As our mid-market customer base continues to grow and businesses continue to adopt cloud based services, Interxion's cost-efficient connectivity, outstanding uptime performance and flexibility to quickly scale will be of critical importance to 8x8."
