Montreal-based Company Serves Growing Cloud Computing Sector
A recent report from Gartner predicts that, by the end of 2018, the worldwide public cloud computing market will generate a total revenue of $306 billion US, up from the roughly $260 billion US generated last year. In Q4 of 2017, Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) exponential growth in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) sector led many industry analysts to conclude that the cloud computing services company will remain in a dominant position for quite some time. As a result, offering connectivity to the AWS environment is a smart move for data center operators targeting the enterprise cloud computing market.
Today, eStruxture, a network and cloud-neutral data center operator based in Montréal, announced AWS Direct Connect availability within its MTL1 and MTL2 facilities. This allows its customers to connect their privately owned and managed IT infrastructure directly to AWS’ diverse range of on-demand cloud computing platforms.
“We’re very pleased to provide AWS Direct Connect to our clients and to the Montreal market overall. As Canadian and international enterprise customers look to connect their on-premise and cloud applications, our goal is to provide them with simple and efficient connectivity options, which are backed by our reliable colocation infrastructure. This offering will enable current and new customers to maximize their IT investments within their colocated or managed spaces while capturing the flexibility of AWS.” – Todd Coleman, President of eStruxture
The AWS Direct Connect addition further raises eStruxture’s profile within the global direct-to-enterprise and cloud computing markets. In fact, the company has branded itself as providing network and cloud-neutral data center solutions designed with the capacity, performance and flexibility to run modern enterprise applications. This new offering certainly makes good on its promises. By giving its customers the flexibility to link privately and securely to AWS, eStruxture is supporting them in reducing their overall networking costs.
“Our goal as a data center provider is to create a facility where the customer can best design and choose the architecture they want. For those customers who are using AWS, access to AWS Direct Connect allows them to combine their on-premise solutions with reliable, secure and consistent access to the varying and constantly innovating services of AWS.” – Strahan McCarten, Senior Vice President of Product & Strategy for eStruxture
Overall, eStruxture is poised to continue its growth in eastern Canada. The company boasts access to multiple carriers and providers that include both Canadian household names like Rogers, Bell and Telus, as well as global giants like TATA, Zayo and GTT.
