If, like many organisations, you are using the cloud, it’s important to know about the connectivity infrastructure that supports the cloud. While most data will travel across the public Internet, or with a VPN via the public Internet, Cloud Connect is a dedicated connection between your network, and your cloud services. A dedicated connection means your data bypasses the public infrastructure, and therefore benefits from consistent performance and improved security.

Cloud Connect allows you to connect to any one of the many cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Google Cloud, Oracle, HP and Salesforce. Additionally you can get cost savings by using the same connection for multiple services. Efficiencies can also be gained through mitigation of outages through a fault resistant architecture, which allows an uptime of up to 99.999%.

[av_content_slide title=’Security’ link=” linktarget=” av_uid=’av-iw9y7v’]
Secure network access is an essential component of cloud computing. Your data may be at risk if it travels over the public Internet network. However, with Cloud Connect, security is guaranteed as it’s a private dedicated connection, meaning that it’s for your data and your data only.
[/av_content_slide]
[av_content_slide title=’Resilience’ link=” linktarget=” av_uid=’av-1rrdl7′]
If your organisation is reliant on cloud, then it’s no use if your connectivity infrastructure only allows you to access it some of the time. Furthermore, incidents such as a contractor cutting through your fibre, could cut off your connectivity for weeks. Thankfully with Cloud Connect these scenarios are mitigated due to resilient failover options. This enables your business to stay online around the clock with up to 99.999% uptime as guaranteed by proactively monitored Service Level Agreements.
[/av_content_slide]
[av_content_slide title=’Performance’ link=” linktarget=” av_uid=’av-fir5xn’]
By having a dedicated and direct private connection that is not shared by anyone else, consistent high level performance is enabled. This results in a quality end-user experience on-top of a fast, efficient, and reliable service. Additionally, unlike shared connections, your route to cloud is unaffected by contention and demand at peak times.
