PacketCOR, the cloud on-ramp product offered by PacketFabric, enables dedicated, security-rich connectivity to IBM Cloud through Direct Link at speeds from 1Gbps to 10Gbps. This provides customers with a protected, reliable and low latency connection for moving critical workloads and data to the cloud versus the public internet.

PacketFabric customers can access IBM Cloud services in Dallas, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., from any location on the PacketFabric network.

"Both PacketFabric and IBM have expertise in the industrial sector along with financial services and health care," says Jezzibell Gilmore, SVP of Business Development at PacketFabric. "Customers seeking a dedicated connection to IBM Cloud services can now instantly establish connectivity using PacketFabric's private network."

“Whether they are modernizing core business apps or using cloud-native techniques to generate new value from data, enterprises need fast, reliable and protected connectivity between remote networks and the IBM Cloud," comments Kit Linton, vice president of network, IBM Cloud. “The collaboration with PacketFabric can provide businesses with the connectivity they need for hybrid workloads.”
