From desktop to data centre, Ignite provides end to end solutions

Ignite is a UK based provider of business to business communications offering a range of connectivity solutions, telephony products, and managed services to businesses of all sizes. It delivers end-to-end solutions with a single point of contact, a successful service which has helped it to deliver over 40% growth in each of the last three years.

Increasingly, Ignite has seen its customers looking to adopt cloud-based solutions as working practices and business needs evolve. Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) provides a local solution integrated into a global network. The ideal solution for both Ignite and its customers.



Supporting hybrid solutions.

It is important for Ignite to work with a flexible and scalable cloud solution that can meet contrasting business needs. Inevitably, many require a hybrid solution that can be integrated with existing, legacy systems. Interoute VDC’s global, privately networked cloud platform provides a flexible Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution that enables Ignite to simplify the cloud migration process and to deliver the best solution tailored to meet individual customer needs.


Private cloud confidence.

Guy Hocking, Operations Director, Ignite

Ignite has built its reputation on delivering best of breed solutions to its customers. When evaluating cloud providers, a crucial point of differentiation was that Interoute VDC is the only cloud built on its own global private network. With Interoute, Ignite can offer its customers public cloud flexibility and private cloud confidence. The ability to demonstrate exactly where customer data resides is also an important feature which sets Interoute apart from other cloud providers. Some Ignite customers have a legal obligation to keep their data in a specific location while others recognise that application performance can be improved by placing data closer to users. 


A global cloud platform to depend on.

Guy Hocking, Operations Director, Ignite

From desktop to data centre, Ignite provides end to end solutions and support to its customers. Each is assigned a dedicated consultant to help monitor current services and to provide industry expertise when evaluating new requirements and solutions. Having worked together for many years, the strong partnership with Interoute is essential to this process. As customer needs evolve, Interoute VDC’s flexible infrastructure enables them to quickly deploy or reallocate resources such as processing power, memory, storage and bandwidth, to the applications that require them whenever necessary.
