Colt Technology Services, a provider of agile, high bandwidth connectivity solutions, has announced that it is now interconnected at over 200 public Cloud on-ramp locations globally, covering the vast majority of the significant public Cloud Points of Presence (PoPs) market in Europe and Asia.
Colt continues expanding its Cloud on-ramps, connecting to Oracle Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud and Microsoft’s Azure Cloud. The most recent addition of a new interconnect to the Oracle Cloud in Newport, Wales, means Colt is more connected to the Cloud than most global providers in Europe and Asia.
Cloud migration is a crucial driver defining enterprise IT strategies, and the last 12 months have seen a surge in cloud migration, driven by COVID-19. They found that enterprises are engaging with a new era of Cloud possibilities and embracing a whole new generation of Cloud-centric compute and connectivity.
Since the launch of Colt Dedicated Cloud Access (DCA) portfolio, which is underpinned by the intelligent Colt IQ Network, Colt has delivered thousands of customer connections towards the Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) through its DCA products, including Cloud On-Demand, DCA Ethernet, IPVPN, SD-WAN multi-cloud, and PrizmNet product offerings.
Keri Gilder, Colt’s CEO, comments: “Many years ago, at the start of the rise of Cloud, Colt made it is first interconnected with AWS Cloud. Today, with over 200 public Cloud on-ramps – more than most providers in Europe and Asia – we’ve become a global cloud incumbent for connectivity. At Colt, we know there is a direct correlation between the success of cloud migration projects and connectivity. We’re committed to serving enterprise cloud requirements with our flexible, high bandwidth and low latency network.”
Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Colt Technology Services, a provider of high-bandwidth connectivity solutions, has announced it is certified for MEF 3.0 SD-WAN services.
