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, as we're an APN Technology Parter supporting AWS Direct Connect. We can also offer connectivity to Azure and Office 365.
AWS Direct Connect is available in a few UK data centres. But we are in lots of extra data centres, so can provide private connections to AWS from far more places.
We can provide you with dedicated connectivity that covers the whole path from your customers' office(s) to their chosen AWS region.
Offer your customers AWS Direct Connect without having to pay for hubs or extending your network into data centres where AWS is present. Piggyback on our investment.
We're connected to AWS in multiple data centres, in different towns. So if your customers wants extra resilience, we can deliver that too.
We're physically connected to AWS already. So set-up is fairly speedy in most cases.
We can take care of the BGP routing. Or we can provide a layer 2 service and leave the BGP routing to you.
Service Level Agreements, backed by 24/7 monitoring
- Our network monitoring systems keep an eye on the AWS Direct Connect interconnects and the routers that they plug into, so that we can spot problems automatically and start troubleshooting quickly.
Quality & Information Security that's independently audited
– Our processes & practices are audited on a regular basis for compliance with ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 27001 (Information Security) and ISO 20000 (IT Service Management) by Alcumus ISOQAR, a certification body accredited by The United Kingdom Accreditation Service.
Microsoft Azure and Office 365 connectivity options
- We offer a similar service for connecting to the Microsoft cloud, using a service called ExpressRoute.
