We are excited to announce the launch of AWS Direct Connect at our Chicago facility. By deploying an AWS Direct Connect node in Chicago, Amazon has placed an on-ramp to the public cloud platform right inside our Chicago data center.
As we all know, AWS is the world’s leading public cloud and now QTS offers direct access. AWS Direct Connect enables customers to establish a private, reliable network connection from their environments directly to the AWS in-building point of presence. We are eager to help QTS customers and businesses in the Chicago area get connected.
When building your cloud environment, security should be a top priority as the number of threats facing your mission-critical data increases every day. An easily exploited vulnerability is connectivity to your cloud through a public Internet connection. Internet connectivity just doesn’t offer the robust security protection a private network can provide. One cloud computing platform that allows users to utilize a private network is AWS.
QTS Chicago is now your AWS Direct Connect partner and your single point of contact for colocation, cloud and connectivity.
