The arrangement represents the first Amazon Direct Connect location in Paris. Telehouse customers can now access AWS Direct Connect via a dedicated 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps connection or via AWS Direct Connect partners directly from the Paris Voltaire data centre.
Using the 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 $141bn in 2019, as more organisations seek to take advantage of the increased performance and reduced costs offered by the cloud,’ stated Hiroyuki Soshi, managing director of Telehouse Europe. ‘In line with this Telehouse has expanded its highly connected data centres in Paris and Frankfurt to meet demand, with our latest addition, North Two in London.’
