Vocus Communications (ASX: VOC) has begun offering a service called Cloud Connect which connects customers to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Sydney.
According to Vocus CEO James Spenceley, demand for cloud services continues to grow as more organisations take advantage of the economics and flexibility offered.
“With Cloud Connect, companies are assured that their data is travelling quickly through a private network into the AWS cloud with robust service level agreements in place,” he said in a statement.
“It’s direct, fast, secure and carried on our own optical fibre network.”

Customers who may experience data volume spikes can go above their committed network speed as required.
