Lightstorm, a digital infrastructure provider, announced its partnership with ZNet Technologies Private Limited, India’s leading cloud distributor offering cloud infrastructure and managed services, for its newest offering Polarin; a Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform designed to cater to cloud-native, forward-thinking businesses, offering a diverse range of connectivity solutions, granting unparalleled control and visibility over network design, deployment, and scaling.
Polarin enables businesses to transform their business capabilities by providing them with scalable and agile cloud interconnectivity across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure, internet exchanges, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and various SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365.
