Masergy Communications Inc. has announced availability of direct, private access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect throughout North America. Masergy’s managed cloud network delivers on-demand access to AWS for a predictable, consistent experience and increased performance and security.

Masergy is now providing customers private, on-net access to AWS by physically interconnecting with Amazon via East and West Coast data centers. This integration provides direct private access to the AWS suite of products and services in all U.S. regions as well as the AWS GovCloud.

“Companies wanting to deploy critical applications on cloud services such as AWS are often challenged by the non-deterministic performance, diminished security, and lack of QoS capabilities associated with access via the public internet,” said John Dumbleton, senior vice president of business development for Masergy. “Our relationship with Amazon resolves these issues by providing on-demand, high performance cloud networking solutions with an unsurpassed customer experience.”

With Masergy’s cloud networking services, customers optimize application performance while also receiving the industry’s best Service Level Agreement (SLA), the ability to modify services in real time as data needs require, and an Intelligent Network Analyst to view and track all network traffic. In addition, Masergy’s intelligent connectivity to AWS provides users with:

  • Private on-net access
  • QoS
  • Ability to quickly adjust connection speeds to 50M, 100M, 200M, 300M, 400M, 500M, 1G, and 10G
