Micro-data center firm Zella DC is partnering with network firm Laser Light to deploy its pods across Australia and globally.  Laser Light will be deploying a number of Zella modules to host its networking services as Laser Light and Halo are looking to create a global networking platform – a multi-domain, all-optical global platform comprised of satellites, terrestrial fiber, subsea cable, micro-data facilities, and AI-patented operating software.

“By colocating these modular data pods as an extension of its multi-domain platform, Laser Light and Halo will be able to expand its service portfolio to deliver personalized data products and services to all communities at the near and far Edge of the network,” the companies said.

“This collaboration with Laser Light and Halo is a testament to our commitment to driving technological advancements in Australia, supporting global demands for innovative approaches to bridge the data gap,” said Angie Keeler, CEO and co-founder, Zella DC. “We are extremely proud to contribute our expertise to this ground-breaking project, creating new solutions that meet the highest standards of performance and reliability required for extreme conditions.”

Bob Brumley, chairman and CEO of Laser Light Companies, added: “With artificial intelligence and other application latency requirements increasing the need for businesses to extend their clouds to the far Edge of the networks, this extension of our service portfolio, levers our investment in next-generation data infrastructures to include not just networking but also computing resources. Zella DC’s micro-data pods will be good for our customers, the environment, and our business. By collaborating with an industry leader, Zella DC, we are able to take advantage of their unique experience and expertise as well as to extend commitment - investment, and staffing - to the Australian market.”
