Data center and hybrid IT solutions provider, QTS Realty Trust, will provide direct connected colocation to AWS Cloud customers. The partnership is in direct response to increased demand for hybrid IT solutions.

This turnkey colocation solution for AWS Cloud customers, QTS CloudRamp, is prebuilt and preconfigured while integrated with AWS cloud services.

QTS CloudRamp was designed for customers needing short-term, AWS-connected colocation for cloud migration, or for longer-term hybrid IT workloads. It features flexible terms, including monthly options, automated onboarding, and is available for purchase online on AWS Marketplace.

QTS CloudRamp is now available via AWS Direct Connect from QTS data centers in Chicago, IL, Piscataway, NJ, Richmond, VA, and Santa Clara, CA.
