Fast, secure and reliable private connections to the public cloud services that are critical to your business.

Before deciding to move your workloads to public cloud, you need to understand how your business will connect to those services. For services to work as if they’re on your premises, you need the connection to be faultless.

IDE Group recognises that fast, secure and reliable access to cloud services is critical to your business. We provide a full choice of cloud connectivity options and use our experience to advise on the best routes to take. Once choices are made, our skilled technical staff will manage implementations and provide ongoing support.

IDE Group Cloud Connect creates direct, private connections between your premises and the cloud service providers you’ve selected to work with. This gives users a service experience equivalent to the provider being located within your on-premise data centre.

IDE Group Cloud Connect for AWS makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to AWS. We maintain resilient connections directly into the AWS cloud and deliver VPN connections across our own private network straight to your equipment. In many cases this will reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than internet-based connections. The solution also provides access to all public AWS services across the EU through diverse connections in our London data centres.
