Cloud Connectivity available in SmartDC
The Netherlands - Thursday, March 31, 2016
Connect to twelve Public Cloud providers from our datacenters with Smart Cloud Exchange.

The various on-net transport networks and IP Transit providers already offer a broad array of connectivity services in SmartDC datacenter. Recently, public cloud connectivity became available directly from our datacenters meet-me-rooms (MMR). Connectivity to twelve well known public cloud providers can now easily be established via layer 2 connections. Without much effort it is possible to connect to a Public Cloud directly from our Meet Me Room to the available racks within our datacenters and even directly from offices connected to SmartDC datacenters. Amongst the cloud providers are Google, Amazon AWS, Softlayer and Microsoft Azure.

These connections are made via approved AWS Direct Connect, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Google Carrier Interconnect partners. This allows companies to combine colocation and public cloud via low latency connections with SLAs covering up to 99.99% packet delivery. Bandwidths ranging from 200Mbps to 10Gbps are available at this moment, which allows anyone to easily scale a connection. Additionally Point to Point or Point to Multi-Point for multiple providers or redundancy are available.

The three largest Tier-1 networks Level3, Global Crossing and Cogent offer services in the SmartDC Meet-me-Rooms. This offers the advantage to directly connect to the backbone of the internet without local fiber or any other 3rd party dependencies. Additonally metro connections can be established within the Europe to local offices with connectivity from Tele2, KPN, Liberty Global (UPC, Ziggo), Eurofiber, euNetworks and many others. A PoP from SURF allows high schools, libraries and universities to connect to the SURF network.
