Moving to the cloud has ceased to become a novelty for enterprises as they recognize its many benefits, but as the number of innovative cloud solutions in the market increase, it is necessary for enterprises to thoroughly evaluate how to implement a proper cloud transformation strategy into their organization to ensure that they maximize their cloud investments. One important aspect of going cloud is the connectivity to link to your resources. These connections should be fast, reliable, secure, and cost-efficient, if an enterprise were to implement an effective hybrid cloud strategy – that being having an on-premise infrastructure and multiple cloud services working harmoniously together.
To spur enterprise hybrid cloud adoption, ePLDT, the digital enterprise enabler of the country's leading telecoms and digital services provider, PLDT Inc., has once again achieved a milestone in its capabilities to deliver cloud solutions, reliable & SLA-driven connectivity, and expert support. ePLDT recently upgraded its partner level, achieving Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect Partner status.
“Leveraging on the PLDT Group’s superior international data network as well as ePLDT’s cloud expertise, our elevation to AWS Direct Connect Partner reflects our continuous commitment to help enterprises leverage on the cloud to drive business growth,” said Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT Group Chief Operating Officer. “With AWS’ Direct Connect, enterprises can enjoy an enhanced cloud experience with reliable network performance and lower latency that only a dedicated connection to the Amazon Web Services cloud can provide.”
As a Direct Connect Partner, ePLDT provides enterprises a direct, secure and reliable connection between their data center, office, or colocation environment to Amazon Web Services locations in a true hybrid cloud fashion. This, in turn, enables enterprises to reduce their data-transfer costs, increase their bandwidth throughput, and enjoy a more consistent network experience compared to Internet-based connections.
ePLDT also enables enterprises to easily scale their connections depending on their business requirements. ePLDT can support bandwidth requirements from as low as 2mbps and up to 1Gbps for bandwidth-heavy workloads, as well as provision multiple connection paths to ensure redundancy. With its AWS Direct Connect status, ePLDT not only provides safe and secure data transit, but also delivers real cloud flexibility.
“Beefing up our cloud portfolio also means continuing to enhance our connectivity to the cloud and our people’s capabilities. This will ensure that we deliver reliable connections and expert support to our enterprise customers,” added Nico Alcoseba, Head of PLDT Disruptive Business Group.
ePLDT’s cloud solutions portfolio includes various services delivered by ePLDT, such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS), Oracle as a Service (OaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Microsoft Office 365, Desktop as a Service (DaaS), and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). ePLDT also provides professional consulting, migration, managed security, and sys ops services, as well as local technical support to enterprise customers, ensuring a seamless digital experience.
