Level 3 powers Amazon Web Services’ AWS direct connect service


Level 3 Communications announced that it is a solution
provider for Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) new service, AWS Direct Connect,
offering dedicated network connectivity and services to support customer
adoption of the AWS platform.


AWS Direct Connect enables enterprises to set up a
connection to an AWS region via a dedicated network circuit. Using AWS Direct
Connect, enterprises can establish a dedicated connection between AWS and their
organization’s data center, colocation facility or main office, thereby
increasing bandwidth throughput, improving network consistency and reducing
network costs.


Enterprise IT departments are increasingly moving applications
to cloud-based solutions and looking for additive services to ensure network
connectivity is reliable and secure.


Level 3’s advanced network and cloud services enable an
ultra-high availability, end-to-end cloud platform that optimizes business
productivity by delivering AWS services over a network that meets the
applications’ availability, latency and security requirements.


“Enterprise adoption of Amazon Web Services is
growing in both scale and complexity.  With this increasing sophistication,
many customers want network connectivity options that match their
application-specific requirements for performance and security,” said
Andrew Crouch, president of Sales for Level 3.


AWS Direct Connect customers can leverage Level 3’s
network to meet the demands of high-end cloud adopters with extensive network
reach, bandwidth scale and established connectivity to AWS Direct Connect
sites.


AWS provides companies with an infrastructure Web-services
platform in the cloud that enables application management to be tailored to the
business need, and Level 3’s international fiber-optic network is uniquely
equipped to help scale in response to enterprise adoption of cloud-based
services.


With this collaboration, Level 3 can provide end-users 1G
and 10G circuits to the AWS cloud at all Direct Connect sites.
