INAP Expands CloudConnectionTM Footprint
INAP’s CloudConnection service (formerly CloudOption) provides high-performance interconnectivity within the multi-vendor cloud ecosystem
CloudConnection enables INAP to serve the needs of its colocation and hosting customers across key markets by removing barriers to connectivity
ATLANTA, GA – (November 17, 2017) Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), (“INAP” or the “Company”), a provider of high-performance internet infrastructure; including Colocation, Managed Services and Hosting, Cloud and High-Performance Network Services, today announced an expansion of CloudConnectionTM, an interconnection service from INAP colocation and hosting environments to third-party vendor cloud providers.
In 2016, INAP recognized that many of its customers often encountered performance and cost challenges when attempting to share data between existing IT infrastructure and external cloud services. To meet our customer’s needs, INAP launched its CloudOption service, which was available to customers in the following metropolitan markets: Dallas, New York/New Jersey, Seattle and Silicon Valley (Santa Clara). Now, under the name CloudConnection, INAP has expanded this service to customers in Atlanta, Boston and Los Angeles.
“Many of our customers need the ability to connect their INAP colocation and hosting infrastructure to external cloud providers in a quick and cost-effective manner. We are pleased to make this service available in these new markets,” said Corey Needles, SVP and General Manager, INAP COLO. “We know it will benefit our current and future customers whose services are located in these markets.”
CloudConnection provides a secure and reliable link from INAP’s colocation and hosting environments to outside public and private clouds, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. This interconnection allows customers to instantly scale bandwidth from 1G to 10G, enabling a business to react to demand quickly and cost effectively. Furthermore, CloudConnection can be deployed faster and at a lower cost compared to individual connections set up with each provider.
