AWS Direct Connect: Reach your Amazon Cloud

Provisioning connections between data centres and external services has always been a challenge. Which is why only 28% of organisations use a Cloud Connect model to services such as AWS and Azure. Now you can consolidate multiple cloud vendors into a single user interface, quickly and simply deploy multi-cloud environments. Interconnect the same as your cloud business model: available in minutes, no lock-in contracts, pay-as-you-go and change capacity on the fly.

GDPR Impact: UK Cloud Survey 2017

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is clearly the largest external focus for companies in the lead up to its introduction in May 2018. GDPR mandates considerably tougher penalties than the current Data Protection Act; organisations found in breach of the Regulation can expect administrative fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater. Fines of this scale could very easily lead to business insolvency.
