Japan-based Information Delivery Platform provider, KVH Co Ltd, announced today that it is now offering dedicated Ethernet network connections to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Singapore.
According to the company, this new service - called the AWS Direct Connect Service - is a guaranteed private network that aims to provide enterprise customers with new opportunities for creating hybrid-architecture solutions that merge private infrastructure with AWS computing resources.
With this launch, customers will be able to readily access AWS Direct Connect not only from Singapore, but also from other countries such as Hong Kong and Japan. This connection is possible via KVH etherXEN, KVH's next generation Ethernet service, or KVH DCNet, a network of over 75 connected data centres across Asia.
By utilising this service, enterprises can reduce their bandwidth commitment and data transfer charges with their existing Internet Service Provider by transferring data to and from their cloud services directly through KVH's cloud connectivity solutions. With a dedicated private network connection, customers can easily control their network traffic, thereby receiving a consistent and stable network experience.
"Enabling dedicated access to AWS Direct Connect is a key part of our overall cloud services strategy. As organisations continue to adopt and leverage benefits of cloud services, we plan to roll out dedicated access to other leading cloud service providers through this new cloud access solutions portfolio," said Machifumi Kashiwagi, Vice President, Product Management at KVH.
In addition to those enterprises in Singapore, businesses with a presence in one of over 75 KVH DCNet connected data centres across Asia, or over 2000 KVH connected buildings in Japan will also be able to procure ready and direct access to AWS Direct Connect in Singapore.
