Interxion teams up with Level 3 Communications, Enables Connectivity to AWS Direct Connect in Europe
INTERXION HOLDING NV has announced that connectivity to AWS Direct Connect is now available from its 32 data centers across 11 countries in Europe, made possible by teaming up with Level 3 Communications and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
AWS Direct Connect allows customers to establish private connectivity between the AWS platform in the cloud and their existing dedicated IT infrastructure, which can reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections. This service is particularly attractive to customers that use large data sets and real time data feeds or need to satisfy regulatory requirements by using private network connections.
Through Level 3’s global network coverage and on net presence at all Interxion data centers, Interxion customers across Europe can access the AWS Direct Connect platform. They can specify their location and their preferred network service provider with their AWS Direct Connect port request.
“We have provided Interxion customers with the ability to connect to our global network for years,” said James Heard, Level 3’s regional president of EMEA. “We’re delighted to be strengthening this relationship by enabling connectivity to AWS Direct Connect from Interxion’s European city locations.”
“AWS Direct Connect helps our customers to build hybrid cloud solutions between their dedicated IT infrastructures and the AWS platform more effectively by providing cost, security and performance control”, said Vincent in‘t Veld, Director Cloud Segment at Interxion. “This supports the wider IT transformation process by allowing organizations to further maximize their IT efficiency. Thanks to the presence of leading network service providers such as Level 3, AWS Direct Connect can now be accessed by our customer community across our entire data center footprint.”
