Level 3 Communications is moving up the Amazon Web Services (AWS) ladder.

AWS has named Level 3 an advanced partner in its Partner Network, which lets providers connect companies to the AWS Cloud.

Nearly one-quarter of the 1,075 AWS technology partners belong to the advanced tier, including Acumatica, Symantec and Fortinet.{ad}

“We are proud to have achieved this level of partnership with AWS via the [Amazon Partner Network]. Global enterprises rely on Level 3’s Cloud Connect service to access AWS for safe, secure and high-performance connectivity to and from the AWS Cloud,” said Brian Hoekelman, Level 3’s vice president of business and cloud ecosystem development.

Level 3, which says it helps connect more than 20 percent of Fortune 50 companies, gives businesses access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Amazon Simple Storage and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud.

“By working with Level 3, our customers benefit from the years of experience we’ve had developing unique networking solutions that make the cloud perform better,” Hoekelman said. “Level 3 is excited about our success working with AWS and promoting Direct Connect as a best practice in cloud adoption.”
