Partnership will ease migration to AWS, Azure, other public clouds
IT solution provider Avant Communications is partnering with Pureport to enable channel partners and enterprises to more quickly and easily create secure and private connections to the largest public cloud environments.
The Lowdown: Through the collaboration announced Wednesday, Avant’s network of partners can leverage Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric platform to help their customers connect to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and other public clouds without having to wait for usual circuit deployments, which can cost time and money.
The Details: The Multicloud Fabric delivers on-demand cloud-native WAN connectivity between sites and public cloud providers from the same network and powers full-mesh, private backbone networks. The technology includes a self-service console that enables the private connectivity within minutes via AWS Direct Connect, Azure ExpressRoute, and Google Cloud Interconnect to connect the clouds to remote sites or workers over the mesh network.
The fabric also supports Layer 3 BGP peering between the connections. In addition, Pureport offers its Console, which provides self-service management of cloud networks and reduces the costs and expertise normally needed to deploy traditional networks. The company’s API enables developers to drive automation and orchestration into their deployments.
The Impact: Enterprises are increasingly relying on MSPs, systems integrators, and other channel partners to help them navigate the complex world of private, hybrid, and multiple public clouds. Establishing and managing connections into all these environments is no easy task, so tools that can automate and speed up the process can be crucial to an organization’s ability to migrate to the cloud.
Background: Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric offers direct private connections not only to AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud but also to Oracle Cloud and IBM Cloud.
The Buzz: “Our trusted advisors work with enterprises that need to quickly and affordably spin up multicloud or hybrid cloud networks. They need bandwidth that matches their varying needs in order to move data between clouds and add additional sites to the network on demand,” said Drew Lydecker, president of Avant. “This type of cloud-like network didn’t exist until Pureport created it. We’re excited our trusted advisors can now offer a solution with the agility and control that enterprises need to be truly agile and innovative in this rapidly evolving IT landscape.”
“The traditional way for enterprises to provision cloud connections takes weeks and is often cost-prohibitive for many companies,” said Pureport CEO Rich Lee. “This partnership with Avant allows the trusted advisor community to offer innovative, cutting-edge cloud connectivity at a fraction of the cost of a traditional telecommunications solution.”
