These enhancements cover all workloads, including mission-critical applications typically used for managing sensitive data like customer and financial details or patient information in the healthcare industry.
New Connectivity Options
Virtustream’s expanded collaboration with Equinix further extends network connectivity options via ECX Fabric to Virtustream Enterprise Cloud customers in North America and EMEA to accelerate time-to-market for customers through simplified access to secure, reliable and high-performance direct connectivity. The expanded enhancements and support for ECX Fabric offers more customer control, minimizes security threats, and enables easier and faster connectivity access.
The expanded options include commercial Virtustream Enterprise Cloud nodes in North America and EMEA and a broader portfolio of private connectivity options building on existing IPSEC VPN, MPLS, and AT&T NetBond (selected markets) solutions, providing reduced complexity, simplified direct connectivity and vendor management enhancements. While the portfolio provides secure, scalable and reliable connections to offer 99.999% availability-based QoS controls and low latency, the time-to-connect can be dramatically reduced from weeks to just hours in most cases. Furthermore, ECX Fabric provides private and secure connectivity to all major public cloud providers for customers with multi-cloud requirements.
