Posted by Ilissa Miller on Tue, Feb 12, 2013

You can now find Global Capacity on Amazon.  Actually, you will find them as an integral part of the Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Partner Network.  AWS is the global leader in cloud computing. As a select member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), Global Capacity, the leading telecommunications information and logistics company, will be providing private network connections to AWS Direct Connect locations that will reduce network costs, increase throughput and deliver more consistent network performance than Internet-based connections.

Companies requiring private access to the AWS cloud can now get their network services from Global Capacity. Through the One Marketplace, a competitive and leading multi-vendor automated access solution, AWS customers can procure private, secure Ethernet connectivity between AWS Direct Connect locations and their data centers, offices, or colocation facilities. One Marketplace also plays a key role in assisting in the design and implementation of unique and dynamic network environments.

Global Capacity’s One Marketplace offers automated pricing and procurement of optimal access networks. The marketplace provides transparency into access network pricing and visibility into available capacity across multiple vendors and geographies. One Marketplace also improves pricing and delivery efficiencies, and reduces the cost of access networks globally. By providing customers a single interface through which to design, price and fulfill multi-vendor, multi-geography access network requirements, One Marketplace dramatically simplifies and accelerates the delivery of data connectivity.

The use of cloud computing has gained a lot of traction with the increasing availability of scalable and secure cloud connectivity.  The AWS cloud provides an opportunity for end-users to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low, variable costs that scale with their businesses.

The partnership between Global Capacity and AWS combines the most innovative access network solutions and cloud services available in the market today.
