Telx partners now may tout Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect capabilities to their customers.
That's because Telx has combined AWS Direct Connect with its Datacenter Connect product, which means Telx offers private interconnection to more AWS facilities throughout the country. This is especially important as extreme weather events such as Superstorm Sandy become more common. In such disasters, businesses needs continuity and recovery assurance for their networks and data.
"Extending Telx's service offerings with AWS enables clients to design their applications to achieve faster end-user response times, greater security and availability, and better protection from potential regional failures," Joe Weinman, senior vice president of cloud services and strategy for Telx, said in a press release.
Capabilities with AWS Direct Connect include connectivity for direct storage, big data, high-performance applications and custom hybrid architecture.
