Windstream Launches Cloud Connect

Windstream introduced its new Cloud Connect service for making it easier for companies to access the cloud and use it as a foundational element of their IT strategy.

Windstream Cloud Connect benefits new and existing Ethernet, MPLS and Wave (optical) customers, by providing mission critical cloud connectivity through highly secure, performance-optimized virtual and dedicated private access to third party public and private cloud providers. Bandwidth options range from 50 Mbps to 10 Gbps.  Connectivity options include switched Ethernet, MPLS, VPN or point-to-point. Initial clouds supported are AWS and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute.

“More companies are moving mission-critical applications and business processes to the cloud to take advantage of the flexibility and cost savings that cloud infrastructure can provide, but using the public internet for such applications has a number of downsides: poor performance that affects accessibility, iffy security that puts sensitive data at risk, just to name two,” said David Works, president of Enterprise at Windstream. “The solution to that is dedicated cloud connectivity, but in the past, that has only been available to the largest companies with the deepest pockets. Now, Windstream’s Cloud Connect solution makes it possible for a much larger swath of companies to have much more reliable, faster, safer cloud connectivity.”
