Direct access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) via GCX’s Cloud X Fusion in Sydney
SYDNEY, July 31, 2015: Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications, today announced a direct access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) via GCX’s Cloud X Fusion in Sydney, with the ability to establish additional interconnections across multiple locations and offer enterprise customers fast, flexible access to the cloud.
“Secure, private and reliable connectivity to cloud services is always a key concern for enterprises as they embark on their cloud adoption journey,” said Bill Barney, CEO of Global Cloud Xchange. “Using Cloud X Fusion, businesses can take advantage of our enterprise grade connectivity from 90 countries to securely connect their on-premise environments directly into an AWS Direct Connect port over our global infrastructure.”
Through GCX’s extensive global network and its comprehensive product portfolio, Cloud X Fusion provides seamless, low latency connectivity across developed and emerging markets in the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia, which gives enterprises the security, the reliability and predictability as they connect to the AWS cloud services while tapping into bandwidth dynamically on a usage-based consumption.
Cloud X Fusion is part of GCX’s Cloud X® portfolio, a proprietary platform designed to seamlessly combine the speed and power of fiber optics with the agility, flexibility and cost-efficiencies of “pay-as-you-go” cloud computing; available globally and controlled by a simple-to-use user portal.
AWS Direct Connect enables enterprises to establish private connectivity between AWS platform and their datacenter, office, or colocation environment, to reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
