SSE Enterprise Telecoms Launches Cloud Connect Service

Syncing businesses with leading cloud service providers prime

SSE Enterprise Telecoms – one of the UK’s leading connectivity suppliers, and part of SSE plc – announced the availability of high-speed connectivity between businesses and their preferred cloud service providers (CSPs), such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

The service, known as Cloud Connect, offers businesses a private dedicated Ethernet connection to their chosen CSP, delivered over SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ core network. This enables the service to bypass the public Internet, which can carry a range of security and performance issues.

Recently, IDC reported that cloud computing spend alone is growing at four and a half times the rate of IT spend, and has been since 2009. What’s more, it’s expected to grow at better than six times the rate of IT spending from 2015 through 2020.

With more businesses moving away from traditional IT models and investing in private, public or hybrid cloud models, it is essential that those investing in public cloud applications do not suffer the performance issues often associated with accessing applications via the public internet.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ Cloud Connect service supports a range of bandwidths and allows access to multiple CSPs from its redundant by design platform.

Cloud Connect will be available through SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ easy-to-navigate, price comparison engine, LIVEQUOTE, which allows users to generate competitive quotes in real-time for Cloud Connect as well as dedicated Ethernet circuits using both their own network as well as that of leading third parties.
