The virtual network service, from Global Capacity’s One Marketplace software-defined network platform, allows enterprises to build multiple cloud services from a single port in real time to access hybrid and multi-cloud solutions across multiple locations.
Combining multi-destination Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) and Global Capacity’s One Marketplace, Ethernet Multi-Cloud Connect leverages an interconnection architecture with software orchestration to simplify multi-cloud connectivity; businesses to connect to cloud locations or select from a list of interconnected One Marketplace Cloud destinations, including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and 20 other cloud providers on Equinix Cloud Exchange.
“With the migration of data, applications, and storage to the cloud, edge connectivity is becoming more complex. Global Capacity is simplifying that complexity with its One Marketplace platform,” said Jack Lodge, president, Global Capacity. “Our interconnected approach combined with information and automation allows businesses to turn up services faster, boost cloud application performance, reduce latency, scale and improve network control and visibility to achieve a quality cloud experience.”
The flexibility of Ethernet Multi-Cloud Connect enables every destination point to be connected via a dedicated Ethernet Virtual Circuit (EVC). Each point is configured separately and with its own set of attributes, including bandwidth, destination port, class of service and more.
