Carrier neutral data centre provider Telehouse has announced the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect at its Paris Voltaire data centre in France. The arrangement represents the first Amazon Direct Connect location in Paris.
Telehouse customers can now access AWS Direct Connect via a dedicated 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s connection or via AWS Direct Connect partners directly from its Paris Voltaire data centre. This will make it easy for its customers at Telehouse Paris Voltaire to establish a high-capacity, secure link to the entire suite of AWS cloud services.
Using the AWS Direct Connect service, data that would have previously been transported over the Internet is delivered through a private network connection to the cloud. This improves performance and security, whilst reducing cost and allowing for scalable bandwidth at peak business times.
AWS Direct Connect provides access to the full suite of Amazon cloud computing services including; Simple Storage Service (S3), Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2), Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) and Relational Database Service (RDS).
‘The adoption of cloud computing is still growing rapidly, with spending on public cloud services alone predicted to increase to more than $141 billion in 2019, as more organisations seek to take advantage of the increased performance and reduced costs offered by the cloud. In line with this Telehouse has expanded its highly-connected data centres in Paris and Frankfurt to meet demand,’ said Hiroyuki Soshi, managing director of Telehouse Europe.
Telehouse also opened a new data centre this summer, North Two in London Docklands, taking its number of data centres in London to five.
