Vantage Data Centers, a colocation provider operating campuses in Silicon Valley, California, and Quincy, Washington, has partnered with Level 3 to provide private network connections from Vantage’s Santa Clara data center to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and other cloud hosting providers.
The benefits of a private network connection include reduced latency for mission-critical apps and lower bandwidth costs when moving large workloads in and out of a cloud hosting environment.
“We have seen increased interest in hybrid cloud-data center solutions from our customers, and we are working with Level 3 Cloud Connect Solutions to respond to that demand,” said Greg Vernon, Senior Vice President of Sales for Vantage. “Many customers have applications that exist partially in their data center and partially in a cloud hosting environment. This connectivity between Vantage and Level 3 makes it much easier and more cost-effective for businesses to integrate the two.”
Vantage’s data center campuses in Santa Clara and Quincy, Washington include four enterprise-grade data centers totaling over 100MW of potential capacity. Vantage is backed by Silver Lake, a global leader in technology investing, with $23 billion in combined assets under management and committed capital.
