Colt adds AWS Direct Connect in Singapore
November 14, 2016 – Colt has added an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect access node in Singapore.
The new access node is located in Global Switch’s Singapore data centre and complements Colt’s existing node in Equinix SG2, offering both diversity and protection. Customers can now connect directly to AWS from either or both of these locations.
This enhanced solution caters to the needs of businesses in Singapore, such as financial organizations that require diversity, enterprises migrating data/applications to the cloud, and other entities that require reliable, dedicated connectivity.
Colt’s AWS Direct Connect solutions bring cloud services directly to the user through a secure, private network, rather than internet-based connections prone to disruption, thereby achieving the stability necessary to serve the mission-critical needs of business applications.
“The addition of a new AWS Direct Connect location underscores our commitment to supporting businesses based in Singapore achieve their goals more securely and cost-effectively,” said Masato Hoshino, Vice President and Head of Product Management for Colt in Asia.
“Furthermore, Colt is one Singapore’s few providers possessing a service portfolio with the breadth and depth capable of offering one-stop end-to-end connectivity throughout Asia and beyond. This enables us to serve our customers with the consistency and quality they expect, regardless of location, whether they happen to be mid-size enterprise venturing into overseas markets for the first time, or large MNCs seeking to expand their operations smoothly and efficiently.”
