hSo CloudDirect for AWS Direct Connect

Private, dedicated connections to AWS

Many of your customers use AWS services and connect to their resources over the Internet. This can cause problems. 

To remedy these issues, Amazon created AWS Direct Connect, a service that creates a private, dedicated connection to AWS from selected data centres. This eliminates Internet congestion, cuts network latency, makes bandwidth bills more predictable and reduces some IT security risks.

hSo can set up private connections to AWS's EU (London) and EU (Ireland) regions. We can also offer connectivity to Azure and Microsoft 365.
