Dimension Data (DiData) has announced the availability of Cloud private network connection (CPNC) as an add-on service for its enterprise-class public, private and managed hosting cloud offerings.
According to the company, CPNC services allow clients to establish a dedicated connection between their own network and DiData’s managed cloud platform (MCP) locations to provide greater control over data in the Ccloud.
Manish Pratap, GM for DiData’s Cloud business unit in Asia Pacific said, “CPNC replicates the security, connectivity and responsiveness that enterprises are accustomed to from their own wide area and local area networks.
“Organisations around the world require this type of dedicated connection to cloud services where performance is critical to achieve cost savings; improve throughput and consistency in regions where bandwidth is expensive or unreliable; ensure quality of service; and provide greater security.”
The company stated that CPNC services would be well-suited to healthcare, retail, finance and government industries that require a private connection to MCPs.
The services come in two options. Direct connect provides access to a physical portal at the MCP location at a speed of 1Gbps, while private connect provides access to a virtual port via a partner MPLS provider at flexible speed options.
CPNC services also support multiple access methods including fibre, Ethernet and MPLS.
DiData stated that CNPC services are currently available and clients can opt for access to MCP locations in the US, Netherlands, UK, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and South Africa.
