Cloud Connectivity

Fast, secure and reliable private connections to
public cloud services.

Before deciding to move customer workloads to the public cloud, you need to understand how you’ll connect your customers to them. For services to work as if they’re on their premises, connections need to be invisible.

5i recognises that fast, secure and reliable access to cloud services is critical. 5i Cloud Connect creates direct, private connections between your premises and the cloud service providers you’ve selected to work with. This gives users a service experience equivalent to the provider being located within their on-premise data centre.

5i Cloud Connect for AWS establishes a dedicated network connection to AWS. Connecting directly into the AWS cloud, we deliver VPN connections across our own private network straight to your customers’ equipment. Typically, this reduces network costs, increases bandwidth throughput, and provides a more consistent network experience than internet-based connections.

5i Cloud Connect for Microsoft Azure creates a private connection between Microsoft Azure data centres and customer infrastructure. ExpressRoute connections for Microsoft Azure, don’t go over the public Internet, so offer greater reliability, security and control, with reduced latency.
