Pacnet has announced support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect, so that wholesale and retail customers can establish dedicated private network connections to build and manage hybrid cloud computing deployments.
Customers hosted at Pacnet’s Tier III data center facilities in Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo, as well as through any network point-of-presence (PoPs) across the Asia-Pacific region using Global Ethernet International Private Leased Line (EIPL) and MPLS-based global IP VPN service will be able to access to AWS. The integration means that Pacnet customers will be able to dynamically manage application workloads across the AWS cloud and their private IT environments.
“Our support for AWS Direct Connect, together with the commercial launch of Pacnet Enabled Network, provides enterprises with ability to match their network usage to their compute and storage, creating even greater value in a hybrid IT cloud computing environment,” said Jim Fagan, president of managed services at Pacnet. “Our industry-leading network and data-center assets work with AWS Direct Connect, providing customers a seamless virtual Asia Pacific data center architecture platform.”
Customers have scalable bandwidth options from 50Mbps to 10Gbps, and can access multiple resources on AWS Direct Connect via multiple virtual connections (VLANs) over a single Ethernet service. They can also provision connectivity on a dedicated port and a per-VLAN basis.
