Cologix Unveils Neutral Cloud Connect Platform
Offering direct access to broadest range of public, private and hybrid cloud services in key North American data centers.
Cologix has unveiled Cologix Cloud Connect, a platform that provides a streamlined source for enterprises to access the widest selection of services to securely satisfy their current needs while retaining adaptability to the changing technology landscape. Cologix customers have technology choice between public, private and hybrid cloud models as well as vendor choice within each model.
Cologix offers more connectivity choices for protected access to public cloud services like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure Express Route and the Google Cloud Platform than any provider across its platform. Enterprises interested in public cloud applications can choose from more than 80 pre-approved, direct onramps to these services that bypass the public Internet. Cologix customers can also connect to more than 100 cloud services providers operating nodes within Cologix data centers to augment their own internal IT environment. Finally, Cologix continues to build relationships with technology providers who build private cloud environments in Cologix facilities for their end users.
“We have a large and diverse set of enterprise customers, ranging from Fortune 100 to local businesses. Interestingly, conversations across that wide spectrum have revealed several consistent themes,” explains Graham Williams, chief operating officer, Cologix. “First, our customers are adopting cloud services selectively to work with their internal systems, as opposed to replacing them altogether. Second, our clients are approaching the space cautiously because they are unsure which service providers and technologies will win out as the market matures. In consulting with our customers it is clear to us that choice and low switching costs are every bit as important in the cloud service space as in the network service space.”
“We are proud to present the largest collection of cloud providers in our Meet-Me-Rooms across our 8 market, 20 data center platform. More than 100 cloud service providers have already deployed nodes with Cologix to make their services available to a new set of customers in our unique markets,” notes Williams. “These providers realize there is an underserved universe of enterprises in markets like Jacksonville, Montreal and Vancouver that value high performance and protected connections as differentiators.”
