AIMS Group to offer direct connection to AWS
17 July 2017 | James Pearce
The AIMS Group, a carrier neutral data services provider, has launched a private network connection to support Amazon Web Services Direct Connect service for customers in Malaysia.
The company will enable customers to establish a dedicated network connection to AWS Cloud from on-premises data centres, offices, or co-location environments, allowing them to reduce networks costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience.
"AIMS has always been focused on building an ecosystem of partners and customers that are mutually beneficial to each other's business,” explained Aims Group CEO Chiew Kok Hin.
"Our carrier-neutral status offers clients the ease to connect with more than one telco creating a unique multi beneficial ecosystem of international and local clients from industries such as media, content, financial institutions, multi-nationals, tourism, gaming and more.”
The AIMS Group runs colocation facilities in Vietnam, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. Aims’ data center facility in Singapore is located in Telstra’s Paya Lebar Data Center, a carrier neutral data center and a part of the Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN).
Chiew added that businesses would now be able to run both a public and private environment, allowing resources to separate where necessary. These could also be configured using virtual interfaces, allowing AIMS’ customers to respond to any changing needs.
"We have always listened to our customers' concerns and wish list, and we believe AWS Direct Connect will benefit both our existing and future customers," he added.
