Verizon Adds AWS to Private Secure Cloud Interconnect
NEW YORK -- Verizon Enterprise Solutions today the addition of Amazon Web Services to its growing list of cloud services accessible via its Secure Cloud Interconnect (SCI) service, enabling clients to easily manage a multi-cloud environment that allows for dynamic bandwidth allocation, application performance throughput, quality of service and usage-based billing.
With SCI, Verizon is removing many of the barriers that often affect enterprise cloud adoption, including scalability, control and flexibility.
SCI uses AWS Direct Connect to enable pre-integration of networking and data center interfaces to create a secure, high-performance environment.
With Verizon's SCI service and AWS Direct Connect, enterprises can register and select the AWS region location and service information to automatically provision high-speed, dedicated connections in minutes or hours, versus days or weeks using a more traditional model.
SCI with AWS Direct Connect is available immediately in Northern Virginia and Silicon Valley. London and three Asia-Pacific locations (Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo) are planned for late October.
