Zayo Launches Flex Ethernet Service

Zayo launched a usage-based Ethernet service for flexible cloud and data center connectivity.

Zayo FlexConnect provides dedicated Layer 2 Ethernet connecting to more than 200 data centers, cloud, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, VMWare and Cisco Intercloud.  Customers pay only for the data they transport.

The service is available from 500 Mbps to 100 Gbps.  Zayo’s online self-service platform lets customers compare prices, purchase services, track orders, view their bandwidth usage and invoices.

“Zayo’s FlexConnect is aligned with today’s on-demand world, enabling businesses to scale up or down and pay only for the service they use,” said Max Clauson, executive vice president of Network Connectivity Services at Zayo. ”The solution is ideally suited for cloud and IaaS or any enterprise application with fluctuations or seasonality in traffic demands.”

“With FlexConnect, which leverages Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute to connect to Microsoft Azure, more customers can leverage Azure services easily and cost effectively,” said Venkat Gattamneni, group product marketing manager, Microsoft Azure. “FlexConnect is an ideal solution for customers who need more secure, flexible connectivity to the cloud to meet changing business needs.”

“We are excited to continue to work with Zayo to bring new, creative network solutions to customers inside Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers. FlexConnect will provide customers in our facilities with on-demand, cost-effective connectivity to a wider selection of providers and destinations,” said Bill Long, vice president of Interconnection Services at Equinix. “We also look forward to attracting new customers who now have an exciting new option to connect to our Cloud Exchange.”
