Teraco now offers Amazon Web Services Direct Connect through its Johannesburg JB1 and Cape Town CT1 data centres.
“This will enable customers to directly access AWS services in AWS infrastructure regions around the world. The benefits of AWS Direct Connect are dedicated connectivity to AWS regions, consistent network performance, and reduced bandwidth costs,” said Teraco.
AWS Direct Connect is a dedicated network connection that brings connectivity between on-premises or colocation environments and the cloud, said the company.
“AWS Direct Connect is ideal for organisations with latency or compliance-sensitive workloads.”
The announcement from Teraco follows a statement by Amazon Web Services that it is launching its first physical presence for customers in South Africa.
