EllaLink and BSO offer a high-performance, resilient, secure and available solution

EllaLink is an optical platform connecting Europe and Latin America Data Centres that is fully operational from 2021. Our network combines a 100Tbps submarine cable between Portugal and Brazil and different backhaul solutions that allow us to spread our clients' data between Marseille and Sao Paulo.

EllaLink, the express optical fibre platform between Europe and Latin America is working together with BSO, the global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider, to offer companies within the Energy sector the best connectivity while securing the lowest latency.

When we talk about the energy sector and key players, the first thing we think of is the product itself, but the increased growth in the number of data transactions within this sector is a central discussion topic mainly when the digital transition is a vital aspect for the industry.

Data flows and arises from anywhere these days.  There are new market players, new demand from emerging markets and increased demand for new types of products or services – this will all create more data that will need to be shared.

Currently and for any market around the globe, the businesses transactions are made at speed and the new transatlantic submarine connection that EllaLink has secured with 100Tbps of capacity is exactly what companies need to perform a faster transfer of their information and data to the other side of the Atlantic.

Before EllaLink, any connection from Europe to Latin America would need to bypass North America and only from there reach the Brazilian country. The new direct route with 6.000km under the Atlantic Ocean depth allows for a latency reduction of 50%, which has an immediate and significant impact on companies’ data transfer.

The EllaLink diverse route offers our corporate customers an improved security level but also allows for market players to look at this new route as a great opportunity to reach other markets. A direct link from European countries to the south of the American continent plays an important role in data security as it will not cross any filter from other countries.

EllaLink and BSO are proud to support companies in the Energy sector to find the best route to reach other markets or even current markets in a diverse way.

Together, BSO and EllaLink can respond to a number of very concrete problems for their clients in the energy sector and provide the following solutions:

  • Use redundant paths and hardware between our data centres
  • Work with third-party providers to procure two fully diverse circuits to the customer’s location
  • Provide an unrivalled latency level to ensure high-performance connectivity and 100% redundancy across the entire solution
  • Procure hosting space for our customers in the same facility where we have our POP to simplify both the support and connectivity back to our infrastructure.
