If, like many organisations, you are using the cloud, it's important to know about the connectivity infrastructure that supports the cloud. While most data will travel across the public Internet, or with a VPN via the public Internet, Cloud Connect is a dedicated connection between your network, and your cloud services.
A dedicated connection means your data bypasses the public infrastructure, and therefore benefits from consistent performance and improved security.
Cloud Connect allows you to connect to any one of the many cloud service providers, including AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Azure, or Office 365. Additionally you can attain cost savings by using the same connection for multiple services. Efficiencies can also be gained through mitigation of outages through a fault resistant architecture, which allows an uptime of up to 99.999%.
