AT&T has extended NetBond, its network-enabled cloud solution, to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The carrier says that customers will have the ability to scale their network at the same rate as their enterprise-class applications running on the AWS Cloud.
AT&T NetBond is designed to dynamically adjust the size of the pathway to the cloud as data needs change, putting the control of the secure network in the hands of the customer. Customers will also benefit from an integrated design that can be quickly implemented, AT&T said. NetBond gives customers access to business applications and information stored in AWS, bypassing the public Internet and the security risks associated with it.
“Our customers want the computing power and cost-efficiency that cloud services deliver with the best security and performance,” said Jon Summers, senior vice president, AT&T Mobile & Business Solutions. “AWS’s extensive portfolio combined with AT&T NetBond offers them the best of both worlds. Our customers will have VPN performance, full cloud networking automation, and flexible and secure bandwidth when accessing AWS cloud services.”
The new integrated solution is expected to be available next year.
