Teraco enhances access to global Cloud providers

IS’s CloudConnect productBy TINTSWALO BALOYI

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – INTERNET Solutions, a pan-African communications service provider, has connected at Teraco, a vendor neutral data centre provider in South Africa, enabling a secure connection and single point of access to the Cloud.

It enhances connection to Google, Amazon Web Services, Dimension Data Cloud and Microsoft Azure and Office 365 via IS’s CloudConnect product.

This is seen as a significant shift and example of the adoption of cloud to deliver IT services more effectively.

“Expanding our CloudConnect offering to clients hosted at Teraco will allow this client base to directly access global cloud resources ensuring both security and speed,” said Greg Montjoie, Executive: Connectivity at Internet Solutions.

He said the business benefits of cloud services are well known and the  fact that more clients would now be able to take advantage of these is great news for South African businesses.

“Teraco understands that quality connectivity is a critical element to the effective adoption of cloud services. Making our CloudConnect service accessible to clients hosted in their data centre demonstrates Teraco’s commitment to ensuring that businesses in South Africa have access to the
best possible ICT services that will also contribute to economic growth,” said Montjoie.

CloudConnect establishes the gold standard of versatile, secure connectivity to major international cloud services. The new service provides MPLS VPN connectivity to Google, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft (Azure and Office 365) and Dimension Data Cloud, via new direct interconnections in London (England) and Frankfurt (Germany).

Lex van Wyk, Chief Executive Officer of Teraco, said clients were just a cross-connect away from consuming global cloud resources.

“Connectivity is a prerequisite for ICT services and solutions to work effectively. This is an exciting opportunity, providing further choice in interconnection at Teraco, keeping content local and making business easier and more effective,” said van Wyk.
