NTT Comm Launches Direct Connect to Azure and AWS

NTT Communications launched a Multi-Cloud Connect feature for its Arcstar Universal One services, enabling enterprises to access third party public cloud services through its high-performance MPLS network for enhanced security and improved connectivity.

Multi-Cloud Connect will initially offer direct access to Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud platforms in Tokyo on August 26th, 2015, followed by London later this year.  The service is provided via a security-enhanced, private Layer 3 connection, not via the internet. NTT Comm is planning to expand the service globally.

Multi-Cloud Connect for Amazon is offered over dedicated 50Mbps, 100Mbps, 200Mbps, 300Mbps, 400Mbps, and 500Mbps, as well as best-effort 100Mbps and 1G connections.  Multi-Cloud Connect for Microsoft Azure is offered over dedicated 10Mbps, 50Mbps, 100Mbps, 500Mbps, and 1Gbps connections.
