Attenda Limited has announced the launch of the Attenda Cloud Exchange, providing direct connectivity to AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute; with connectivity to Microsoft Office 365 and other public clouds planned.
Attenda Cloud Exchange provides a key component of Attenda’s Hybrid IT strategy, enabling its enterprise Clients to deploy applications into AWS and Microsoft Azure public clouds, connecting back to data and other applications residing within Attenda data centres.
Oliver Presland, director of service strategy, Attenda, comments, “Our Cloud Exchange solution provides Clients with improved performance and reliability when connecting to public clouds, through high throughput, low latency, secure, cloud connections, with flexible bandwidth choices.” He continues, “It expands the potential options for Hybrid IT workloads and applications that clients can build, using a combination of Attenda hosted and public cloud services.”
Multiple bandwidth options are available, supporting fluctuating business requirements, with a flexible commercial model, and minimum monthly commitment, avoiding the lock-in of a long term network provider contract.
Alex Silk, head of development, Reed Online, adds, “reed.co.uk is our business, so a high performance, reliable and secure connection to the AWS public cloud is essential.”
Silk continues, “Attenda Cloud Exchange provides us with connectivity on a flexible commercial basis; it would be much more expensive to build the same connectivity ourselves.”
Attenda has delivered Business Critical IT managed hosting services for the last 18 years. Over time, it has expanded its portfolio to include AWS transformation, transition and operational managed services; and more recently added Microsoft Azure managed services to its portfolio, to offer enterprise Clients real Hybrid IT service choice.
