PacketFabric has expanded its private cloud connectivity offering to a number of cloud service providers (CSPs).

The product now offers capacity starting at 50Mbps, reduced monthly recurring costs and additional on-ramps to leading public clouds available from approximately 160 on-net locations.

These public clouds include, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud, among others via its hosted cloud connectivity service. Additionally, for customers with higher bandwidth needs, the company’s dedicated cloud connectivity service provides customers with an exclusive connection.

“Expanding our cloud connectivity options will allow PacketFabric to serve a wider audience,” said Anna Claiborne, co-Founder and SVP of product and engineering, PacketFabric. “Previously, our available monthly capacity started at 1Gbps. While many of our customers demand higher capacities, we’ve created lower capacity options to meet additional customer needs. We empower our customers to create reliable, private connections to cloud service providers on their terms.”

As a result of this expansion, PacketFabric now supports connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Transit Gateway. AWS Transit Gateway is a service that enables customers to connect their Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) and their on-premises networks to a single gateway.

PacketFabric’s hosted cloud connectivity service uses existing interconnects between PacketFabric and the cloud service provider starting at 50Mbps, while its dedicated cloud connectivity service allows for connections between 1Gbps and 100Gbps for a customer’s exclusive use.

In addition, PacketFabric has added 36 additional on-ramps in the US, Europe, and Australia to AWS and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). By connecting to PacketFabric’s network at any location, customers can instantly connect to any on-net cloud provider in any available market.
