KUALA LUMPUR (July 17): Carrier-neutral data services provider the AIMS Group is set to offer private network connection to support Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect service.
In a statement today, the company said AWS Direct Connect enables customers in Malaysia to establish a dedicated network connection to AWS Cloud from on-premises data centre, office, or colocation environment.
It said that in many cases, using AWS Direct Connect helps reduce customers' network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
AIMS Group chief executive officer Chiew Kok Hin said businesses could now separate and maintain both a public and private environment where some resources are stored on cloud using public IP address space while critical resources will run on Amazon Virtual Private Cloud using private IP space.
He said these virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time to meet changing needs.
"AIMS has always been focused on building an ecosystem of partners and customers that are mutually beneficial to each other's business.
"Our carrier-neutral status offers clients the ease to connect with more than one telco creating a unique multi beneficial ecosystem of international and local clients from industries such as media, content, financial institutions, multi-nationals, tourism, gaming and more," said Chiew.
He added that AWS Direct Connect was important and strategic to the AIMS Group's ecosystem of customers.
"We have always listened to our customers' concerns and wish list, and we believe AWS Direct Connect will benefit both our existing and future customers," he said.
