Global hosting and cloud services provider Leaseweb has launched its Leaseweb Cloud Connect solution. Leaseweb Cloud Connect would enable customers to seamlessly connect their Leaseweb-hosted infrastructure to their public cloud or hyperscaler environment- and to allow sharing of data and applications between them.

In partnership with Network-as-a-Service provider Megaport, Leaseweb Cloud Connect will initially provide connectivity to AWS. The company has already plans in place to add other leading hyperscalers throughout the rest of the year.

“Leaseweb Cloud Connect provides businesses with an efficient way to build secure networks that interconnect cloud infrastructures across Leaseweb and public clouds,” said Nikolaos Koletsas, Product Manager, Leaseweb Global.

Leaseweb Cloud Connect is designed for businesses that require the flexibility to move workloads between hyperscalers and Leaseweb’s infrastructure in line with changing demands and budgets. Customers will be able to select different connectivity speeds between 100Mbps and 10Gbps, depending on individual project and budget requirements.

“Leaseweb Cloud Connect provides businesses with an efficient way to build secure networks that interconnect cloud infrastructures across Leaseweb and public clouds,” said Nikolaos Koletsas, Product Manager, Leaseweb Global. “The new offering delivers a hybrid cloud solution that allows businesses to use a public cloud for development, PaaS functions, one-off workloads, and big data platforms, all while leveraging Leaseweb for business-critical applications and associated data or specific production environments. Megaport’s Software Defined Network provides the scalable, secure connectivity to cloud onramps to ensure peak performance. This approach minimizes infrastructure costs and increases the speed at which organizations can bring new products and services to market.”
