Hybrid colocation and mega-scale data center solutions provider, QTS Realty Trust, is expanding its connectivity ecosystem by offering more robust alternatives to traditionally confined metro connection facilities. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has implemented components of its network infrastructure in QTS’ mega data centers in Chicago, Atlanta, and Piscataway, NJ, to allow connectivity for a wide variety of AWS services.
QTS will provide AWS with high-density colocation in its data centers, which will act as major ingress/egress points for AWS clients and partners accessing AWS services, as part of the multi-megawatt arrangement.
The additional installations would help AWS achieve its goal of providing scalable and reliable connectivity to its clients. AWS has dedicated space, power, and fiber variety for long-term network planning, enabling for efficient and sustainable development, thanks to QTS’ mega data centers. AWS’ Internet peering architecture and worldwide backbone will be supported by QTS’ expanding connectivity ecosystem.
Latency Network Access
QTS’ mega data centers combine carrier-neutral cloud interconnection, access to the world’s largest IP networks, various dark and lighted fiber providers, redundant transport methods, and access to the world’s major cloud providers to provide connectivity for corporate and hyperscale colocation.
The QTS goal for decentralizing network architecture out of a few of increasingly congested Internet nexus locations and into new, highly linked data centers in major US markets is similarly aligned with the AWS regional deployments.
“We are pleased to support network infrastructure for the world’s most scalable, secure, and reliable cloud,” said Sean Baillie, EVP Connectivity at QTS. “Our vision for diverse connectivity hubs and ubiquitous, low-latency network access is top of mind for enterprise, hyperscale, and government customers and central to our business strategy.”
