QTS Realty Trust announced it will provide direct connected colocation to AWS customers. The partnership is in direct response to increased demand for hybrid IT solutions.
QTS CloudRamp is the industry’s first turnkey, colocation solution for AWS customers. The solution is pre-built, pre-configured and integrated with AWS cloud services. QTS CloudRamp was designed for customers needing short-term, AWS-connected colocation for cloud migration, or for longer-term hybrid IT workloads. It features flexible terms, including monthly options, automated onboarding, and is available for purchase online on AWS Marketplace.
“A growing number of our customers require colocation as part of their migration to the cloud,” said Mike Clayville, vice president, worldwide commercial sales, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “QTS is a strategic colocation provider and provides customers industry leading customer support, and as a managed service partner has the ability to seamlessly integrate their solution with AWS.”
For enterprises with requirements extending beyond CloudRamp, QTS and AWS will provide tailored, hybrid IT solutions built upon QTS’ highly secure and reliable colocation infrastructure optimized for AWS.
“The AWS and QTS collaboration delivers a combined solution that allows us to more effectively manage our entire tech stack while giving us the flexibility to execute deployments worldwide,” said Mohit Saxena, chief technology officer and co-founder, InMobi. "This new collaboration helps companies, such as InMobi, minimize risk in their hybrid IT and cloud journey."
“By aligning with AWS, we are able to offer an innovative approach to colocation, bridging the gap between traditional solutions and the cloud,” said Dan Bennewitz, chief operating officer, sales, product & marketing, QTS. “We are honored to collaborate with AWS and we are committed to working with them to serve the needs of their customers.”
QTS CloudRamp is now available via AWS Direct Connect from QTS data centers in Chicago, Piscataway, New Jersey, Richmond, Virginia, and Santa Clara, California. Tailored hybrid IT solutions for AWS customers are available across QTS’ 19 U.S. data center locations.
QTS continues to collaborate with AWS to develop a range of solutions leveraging AWS Direct Connect, QTS Managed AWS, QTS CloudRamp, and tailored colocation solutions.
