Amazon Direct Connect Connectivity
Reliable, scalable and secure Cloud connectivity
As your organisation seeks to increase its ability to react to market movements and manage costs, no doubt you’re increasing your existing Cloud Computing services.
The global leader in Cloud Computing is Amazon Web Services with a host of services and applications designed to reduce costs and improve agility.
Connecting to Cloud services across the public Internet comes with increased security and performance issues for mission critical applications. Many organisations are now connecting to cloud services via a dedicated, private network for increased security, performance and scalability.
