LONDON, Jan. 11, 2016 /CNW/ -- CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) today announced that the CenturyLink Cloud platform was selected by Israeli managed services provider EXPIM to power its private, public and hybrid cloud solutions. EXPIM will use CenturyLink's cloud-based infrastructure, bare metal and storage services to provide high-traffic bespoke web services to businesses of all sizes across Israel.
EXPIM, one of the leading web hosting providers in the Israeli market, joins CenturyLink's global channel partnership programme as a reseller.
"Working with CenturyLink as a trusted partner gives us huge benefits, including providing optimised, tailored services to our clients with the power and bandwidth we need," said Ofir Hadad, managing director at EXPIM. "The CenturyLink Cloud platform also enables us to host cloud and hybrid IT services that power our customers' digital transformation to become modern, agile companies, fit for the 21st century.
"We switched to the CenturyLink Cloud platform from a competing cloud services provider as we needed a more robust, customer-focused and agile service. The installation and on-boarding process with CenturyLink was as smooth as I've ever seen, and the performance, from the very first switch on, has been of the highest calibre. This platform will allow us to expand and develop services to meet our clients' needs in the future," he added.
CenturyLink offers infrastructure and application solutions that give customers and partners the flexibility to manage their entire IT environments based on the rapidly changing needs of their businesses. A broad range of managed services are available across traditional infrastructure and cloud services.

"EXPIM customers will continue to see new benefits as we expand the services available through our CenturyLink Cloud platform. We're always looking for ways to expand the availability of our services into new global regions, like we have done in Israel through EXPIM, to help more companies develop and grow their existing and new customer bases."
