“We’ve seen a great demand for direct connectivity to cloud service providers, especially for high bandwidth connectivity,” said Jezzibell Gilmore, SVP of business development at PacketFabric. “Cloud services have matured, and today companies have increasing bandwidth requirements, as well as a growing need for secure connectivity.  PacketCOR is an easy to use, simple to manage and scalable solution for bandwidth-intensive connectivity to cloud service providers.”

At the time of its launch, PacketFabric offers connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Packet, and Markley Cloud Services, to name a few. Cloud connectivity can be created and managed using PacketFabric’s web portal or Application Program Interface (API). All services provided by PacketFabric come with carrier-grade Service Level Agreement (SLA).

“We established PacketFabric in order to securely transmit big data at terabit-scale across our supercomputer network to interrogate the cancer genome in real time. I am excited at the milestone of now connecting various Cloud Service Providers to enable broader access of the unique layer 2 networking capability afforded by our infrastructure,” added Patrick Soon-Shiong, chairman and CEO of NantWorks.

Customers using PacketCOR to connect to a cloud service can do so from 150 on-net locations in North America, at speeds starting at 1Gbps.

Earlier this month PacketFabric confirmed that it has secured $25 million in series B funding lead investor NantCapital. The cash injection will be used to the rapid growth and growing demand for its connectivity-as-a-service platform which was launched in 2017.
