Under the status, ePLDT will provide businesses a connection between their data centre, office, or colocation environment to Amazon Web Services locations.

Digital business solutions provider ePLDT has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect Partner Status.

As a partner, ePLDT will provide businesses a direct connection between their data centre, office, or colocation environment to Amazon Web Services locations to reduce their data-transfer costs while increasing their bandwidth throughput.

"With AWS' Direct Connect, enterprises can enjoy an enhanced cloud experience with reliable network performance and lower latency that only a dedicated connection to the Amazon Web Services cloud can provide," said Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT Group Chief Operating Officer, in a press statement.

In addition, ePLDT enables businesses to scale as it can support bandwidth requirements from as low as 2mbps to 1Gbps for bandwidth-heavy tasks, and provision multiple connections paths to ensure redundancy.

ePLDT offers cloud services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS), Oracle as a Service (OaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS).

"Beefing up our cloud portfolio also means continuing to enhance our connectivity to the cloud and our people's capabilities. This will ensure that we deliver reliable connections and expert support to our enterprise customers," said Nico Alcoseba, Head of PLDT Disruptive Business Group.
