Allstream’s Cloud Connect for AWS delivers fast, secure connections to mission-critical cloud services.
(Toronto, ON) September 21, 2021 – Building on longstanding experience and expertise in connectivity, Allstream is pleased to announce a new addition to its Connectivity suite—Cloud Connect for Amazon Web Services (AWS). As an authorized AWS Direct Connect Delivery partner, Allstream will be able to give customers private access from their businesses to their AWS data and cloud resources.
Available throughout both Canada and the US, Allstream’s Cloud Connect for AWS service allows customers to avoid the “congestion” of public Internet connections with a direct, private connection to AWS. The security of Allstream’s direct connection keeps data safe, and network redundancies and automatic failovers help ensure business continuity.
“With Cloud Connect, our AWS customers can now access their cloud services faster and more securely in a simple, cost-effective way that has QoS built in with every connection,” said Matt Waldo, Allstream Product Manager. “Current Allstream customers are already taking advantage of the security, speed and flexibility offered by direct connection to cloud service providers. For enterprise customers with multiple locations and large amounts of sensitive data to share, the layers of security on an Allstream dedicated connection offer peace of mind, and the quality of the connection means improved speed and continuity across the enterprise.”
Cloud Connect enables management of data by allowing businesses to prioritize data traffic and manage their own routing, keeping mission-critical services up and running even in high-volume periods. The dedicated connection lets businesses connect directly to Cloud data and apps, avoiding the security vulnerabilities and interruptions associated with public Internet connections. In addition, Cloud Connect users can reduce costs associated with accessing data, and current Allstream network customers can streamline Internet management by consolidating everything under one provider.
The Cloud Connect for AWS service is just the latest offering that demonstrates Allstream’s commitment to keeping customers connected in a secure, efficient way. Allstream plans to expand the Cloud Connect service to other cloud service providers, such as Microsoft® Azure and Google Cloud Platform™, in the coming months. In addition, future product expansion will allow for shared connections and additional connectivity options to allow our customers the flexibility, scalability and speed they need to meet the demands of their business.
