DRFortress Serves Up Hawaii’s Only Cloud Migration On-Ramp to Public Clouds

DRFortress has launched the first cloud direct connection from Hawaii into Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric® (ECX Fabric®) on Platform Equinix®.

The DRFortress Cloud Connect is a high-speed, secure, direct connection from the DRFortress data center in Hawaii to the ECX Fabric location in Los Angeles. Hawaii businesses are now able to extend their global reach and access the world’s largest cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Google Cloud, and other cloud, network, and content service providers via a single port.

The direct connect solution enables lower latency, improved network performance, and significant network connectivity cost savings by utilizing one single Layer 2 network circuit for both high-speed connectivity from 1G to 10G service and a simple cross-connection to any public cloud.

“DRFortress is proud to be the first provider in Hawaii to offer this cutting-edge cloud solution,” said Fred Rodi, President and Founder of DRFortress. “Our Cloud Connect solution extends Hawaii businesses to the edge with a secure private line to public clouds. This direct connect access is ideal for customers in Hawaii contemplating a hybrid cloud infrastructure or a slow on-ramp into public cloud services without compromising IT infrastructure security, reliability, or latency for their critical applications.”

“As the world’s digital infrastructure company, we’re excited to collaborate with DRFortress to launch the first cloud direct connection from Hawaii to Platform Equinix,” said Jon Lin, President, Americas Equinix. “Together, we’re powering the success of Hawaiian businesses by enabling them to privately access any public cloud provider to on-ramp their cloud applications and services.”

DRFortress plans to add additional direct cloud connections for customers in Hawaii to reach any of the 45+ ECX Fabric locations across the globe, including New York, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.
