Many companies use a cloud, or even several different clouds, for their business-critical applications or other key parts of their IT infrastructure. Yet since available bandwidths and latency can vary and transmitting sensitive data through a public network is less than ideal, sometimes even insecure, access to this cloud infrastructure via the Internet is only sufficient up to a certain point. A private Layer 2 line guarantees bandwidth, latency and a higher level of security. A 1 or 10 Gbit/s network port gives you the option of purchasing one or more direct connections to the major providers of cloud services.
- Available bandwidths: 10 Mbit/s to 10 Gbit/s
- Available clouds:
- Amazon AWS Direct Connect
- Google Cloud Interconnect (only 50 Mbit/s or more)
- Microsoft Express Route
- Salesforce Express Connect
- IBM Cloud Direkt Link
- Alibaba Cloud
All lines are scalable within hours and offer SLAs with 99.8% to 99.99% availability.
