Masergy Communications Inc. is partnering with Amazon Web Services to offer direct, private access to AWS Direct Connect throughout North America.

Masergy is now providing customers with private, on-net access to AWS by physically interconnecting with Amazon via East and West Coast data centers. This integration provides access to the AWS suite of products and services in all U.S. regions as well as the AWS GovCloud.

“Companies wanting to deploy critical applications on cloud services such as AWS are often challenged by the non-deterministic performance, diminished security and lack of QoS capabilities associated with access via the public internet," said John Dumbleton, senior vice president of business development for Masergy. “Our relationship with Amazon resolves these issues by providing on-demand, high performance cloud networking solutions with an unsurpassed customer experience."

With Masergy’s cloud networking services, customers optimize application performance while also receiving a service-level agreement, the ability to modify services in real time as data needs require, and an Intelligent Network Analyst to view and track all network traffic, the company said.

Masergy joins companies such as Level 3 Communications, tw telecom and XO Communications that have also recently partnered with AWS.
