TierPoint, a U.S. provider of cloud hosting, colocation, managed services and disaster recovery solutions, has joined the AWS Partner Network (APN), offering dedicated “high-speed” connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS) via AWS Direct Connect through TierPoint’s Seattle data center.
Seattle is the first TierPoint site to become an AWS Direct Connect location and the company expects to make it available through additional data centers in the future.
“Customers want more options for quickly and cost-effectively spinning up their workloads,” said Octavio Morales, TierPoint Senior Vice President Operations, Tierpoint. “Through AWS Direct Connect we can provide our cloud customers with a dedicated network connection that helps reduce costs with enterprise-level reliability and performance.”
AWS Direct Connect provides a private, reliable, cost-effective, and low latency network connection to AWS cloud services, according to Tierpoint. AWS Direct Connect services through TierPoint would help organizations realize the benefits of hybrid IT as they move more workloads to cloud environments.
