Interconnection Platform Enables Direct Connectivity to Leading Cloud Providers Including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure

Herndon, VA – June 13, 2016 EdgeConneX®, specializing in global data center solutions at the Edge of the network, today announces that Console will deploy its leading enterprise software and interconnection platform in its Detroit Edge Data Center®. With Console, EdgeConneX’s Detroit metro area enterprise customers will gain scalable, private, direct connections to the world’s most popular cloud service providers, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and more.

With Console, companies can bypass the public Internet and directly connect to business-critical cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. In addition, the Console platform enables direct connections with a variety of other cloud service providers, enterprises and networks. Services accessible via the Console platform offer highly reliable, private and flexible direct connections that avoid the associated risks of sending data over the public Internet. The Console platform extracts Layer 2 and Layer 3 configuration complexity for the enterprise to connect its network privately and directly to others.

Following its recent announcement in Portland, EdgeConneX is pleased to announce Detroit as the next Tier 2 market to now offer locally available cloud for area enterprises. The new high-speed connectivity service provides additional options for companies requiring the most direct, cost-effective, reliable and secure access to their preferred cloud-based solutions. The combination of these offerings will make the EdgeConneX Detroit Edge Data Center (EDC) one of the most connected, high-performance and secure cloud on-ramp facilities in the country.

“With Console’s enterprise software and interconnection platform, EdgeConneX will provide enterprise businesses full access to the cloud in the Detroit metro market,” remarks Clint Heiden, chief commercial officer, EdgeConneX. “This deployment highlights how investments made at the Edge of the network can level the playing field for enterprises located in cities outside of the few core global markets, transforming non-traditional locations to prime connectivity points for burgeoning enterprise businesses.”

“As enterprises look to scale and innovate, they need secure and consistent access to the cloud,” Al Burgio, CEO, Console, comments. “The Detroit Edge Data Center, enabled by Console’s Interconnection Platform, allows area enterprises to have secure and robust solutions to quickly solve their cloud migration challenges.”

The EdgeConneX Detroit EDC is purpose-built to offer security, speed and performance improvements. These innovations enable customers to deliver digital content, cloud and applications to end-users as fast as possible. Edge Data Centers are proximity-based, strategically located nearest to end-users’ points of access to reduce network latency and optimize performance. Local proximity access also brings the cloud closer to the enterprise, enabling more secure, real-time access to cloud applications and services while offering reduced backbone transport costs.
