Colt Technology Services has launched multi-cloud access on its award-winning SD WAN platform, enabling enterprises to benefit from a single connection to multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), including cloud-to-cloud connections, over SD WAN which ensures enhanced security, agility and latency compared with connecting via the public internet.
This SD WAN proposition provides intelligence through application recognition and traffic steering features to increase the availability and performance of access to multi-cloud services.
\Multi-cloud connectivity is underpinned by the Colt IQ Network, which is comprised of 29,000 on net buildings and over 900 data centres, serving more than 25,000 customers globally. Colt’s fully-owned and operated dense fibre network allows enterprises to benefit from an end-to-end, seamless connection to the cloud. Colt’s public and private peering with CSPs globally, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft’s Azure Cloud means that whichever combination of cloud platforms an enterprise choses, application traffic will be optimised to take the most direct path
This next decade is set to be transformational for cloud computing, with new research from Colt finding that 96 per cent of senior IT decision makers are now confident in moving critical business capabilities to the cloud. The study also found that 86 per cent of businesses are taking a multi-cloud approach, highlighting that the majority of enterprises are now relying on many cloud environments to power the next wave of their digital transformations.
