Cloud Connect

On-Net Cloud Connections

An on-net cloud connection, lets you extend your on-premises networks into the cloud provider’s environment over a private service.  These types of connections offer more reliability, faster speeds, consistent latencies and higher security as opposed to a connection that traverses the public Internet. 

If a customer is connected to the Flexgrid network, then they can take an on-net connection to the majority of the public cloud providers. We peer with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud and Alibaba Cloud.


The Solution

High Performance

On-demand connections from 50Mbps to 10Gbps
Flexgrid provides almost instant, on-demand, private connections to many public cloud and SaaS providers, such as Microsoft, Amazon, Google, IBM, Oracle, and Alibaba. These virtual connections can be scaled up to meet customer demand.

Reliable

Connectivity into Public clouds with an SLA

With crucial business workloads in the public cloud, ensuring reliable and consistent network connectivity is essential. On-net cloud connections allow customers to realise the benefit of dynamic cloud resources using a high-throughput, on-net, low-latency connection instead of variable, best-effort VPN alternatives. Connections can be delivered at multiple locations or cloud regions for maximum uptime.

Key Benefits

Simple

Simple to implement across existing Flexgrid services and fully managed by our 24x7 team.

Connection

If delivered as direct connection, it is just like a additional site on your MPLS network (or SD-WAN)

Internet

Connections do not pass over the Internet, guarantee bandwidth, lower latency & higher levels of security.

Virtualization

Virtualized connections provide a low cost alternative or a back-up to a direct connection

Cost

Significant cost benefits when used as part of MPLS or SD-WAN

SaaS Integration

On-net services for SAAS providers such as Salesforce, Oracle and many more.

Get Technical

On-net, resilient support for a large number of public cloud providers such as Azure Express Route, AWS Direct Connect and Google Cloud Interconnect at bandwidths between 50Mbps and 10Gbps.

Support for High-Speed route based VPN services, which can be terminated into your MPLS environment. These services can be hosted on our carrier grade firewall platforms (there is no need for our customers to host expensive physical equipment).

Route based VPN support for all major public cloud platforms such as Azure, GCP and AWS, via a simple provisioning process. This is commonly used as a backup to on-net constructs and is more cost effective.
