Telehouse has announced the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect at Telehouse London Docklands providing Telehouse customers with private and dedicated access to Amazon Web Services. The service is deployed with Telehouse via dedicated 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps connections from any of the data centres located within the Telehouse London Docklands campus.

Telehouse customers in London can now use AWS Direct Connect to transfer data between their IT infrastructure and Amazon Web Services, without using the public internet. This provides organisations with a cost effective and consistent network experience and the ability to scale their bandwidth at peak business times. AWS Direct Connect provides access to the full suite of Amazon cloud computing services including; Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS).

As enterprises seek more flexible solutions for managing their data, improving their security and ensuring compliance, the shift towards a hybrid cloud infrastructure continues. According to a recent survey by 451 Research, Cloud is becoming mission-critical to organisations and more than 60% of survey respondents are moving IT workloads from on premise environments to the cloud.

"The deployment of AWS Direct Connect at our London Docklands campus follows the successful launch of the service at Telehouse Paris Voltaire last year. Telehouse is committed to providing its customers with secure and reliable solutions for managing their IT workloads, in order to support the growing demands of their business. We are pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers through our network of partners that comprise the Telehouse Cloud Interconnect, located at our campus," said Ken Sakai, managing director, KDDI Europe and Telehouse Europe.
