Tokopedia taps Epsilon for secure multi-cloud needs

Indonesian unicorn Tokopedia has engaged Epsilon to provide a secure and high-performance multi-cloud environment in Singapore. 

Epsilon’s managed cloud routing service connects Tokopedia’s production environments in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform and Alibaba Cloud via multiple high-speed Cloud Connects, serving the tech firm’s cloud to cloud needs via Epsilon’s private network.

Epsilon delivers high-bandwidth cloud connections between Tokopedia’s IT infrastructure via its private network. Cloud Connect provides a scalable and flexible solution for Tokopedia to grow its bandwidth according to rising e-commerce demands in Indonesia, and delivers a secure marketplace platform for its more than 10 million merchants and more than 100 million monthly active users. 

Through Epsilon’s network fabric, Tokopedia is able to connect and manage its production IT infrastructure in a multi-cloud environment with improved availability and quality of experience.

“Tokopedia now has the freedom to access and orchestrate the cloud services it needs as its business grows,” said Warren Aw, Epsilon’s managing director in Asia Pacific. 

“We are solving the fundamental challenges of cloud connectivity that are often associated with management, performance and security,” said Aw. “By utilising direct connections to multiple clouds, it can focus on improving its offering without having to worry about the network infrastructure.”

Tokopedia can quickly provision new cloud interconnect services with automation through Epsilon’s Network as a Service (NaaS) platform Infiny. The platform allows users to buy and manage ethernet services for interconnecting data centres and direct connections to cloud service providers and internet exchanges globally.

“With the rising demands for a better digital experience, we needed an agile and flexible solution for securing and improving the performance of our connectivity to the cloud,” said Ryan de Melo, VP of engineering at Tokopedia. 

“Epsilon’s cloud connectivity solutions make it simple for us to directly access the CSPs of our choice with the layer 3 routing that matches our needs,” said De Melo.
