Level 3 Communications will connect Digital Realty Trust customers in the U.S. and Europe to its growing cloud ecosystem that includes Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

"This relationship with Level 3 enables us to facilitate connections for our clients to AWS or Azure globally with Level 3 Cloud Connect Solutions in a seamless and highly secure manner," said Bill Stein, interim CEO of master agency Digital Realty. "As our clients' capacity and connectivity needs grow, it's our goal to facilitate their easy access to a broad range of solution providers. Our alliance with Level 3 and their growing cloud ecosystem play a key role in the breadth of support we can extend to our clients."

Through this partnership, Digital Realty can help its customers reduce costs related to cloud adoption, improve application performance and provide the ability to scale connections based on each customer's needs at any given time, Level 3 said. Additionally, Digital Realty customers can choose the cloud model and cloud provider that best meets their needs, access bandwidth dynamically and pay only for what they use. Bandwidth can be scaled more quickly and efficiently, and customers can leverage the cost savings associated with operating a hybrid cloud environment, the company added.
