Dimension Data announces private network services for cloud
CPNC is aimed at healthcare, retail, finance and government sectors
ICT solutions and service provider, Dimension Data has announced a new private network service, Cloud Private Network Connection (CNPC) that offers dedicated connection options for "enhanced privacy, throughout" for public and private cloud and managed hosting-infrastructure.
CNPC is an add-on service for the company's enterprise-class public, private and managed-hosting cloud offerings. According to Dimension Data, the service will enable clients to form a dedicated network connection between their own network and Dimension Data’s Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) locations for "better performance, greater control and security" over their data in the cloud.
Gerard Florian, director, Product Management, Cloud Business, Dimension Data, said, “CPNC replicates the security, connectivity and responsiveness that enterprises are accustomed to from their own wide area and local area networks. Organisations around the world require this type of dedicated connection to cloud services where performance is critical to achieve cost savings; improve throughput or consistency in regions where bandwidth is expensive or unreliable; ensure quality of service; and provide greater security.”
The new service, which is available now, is aimed at healthcare, retail, finance and government industries that require a private connection to avoid the public Internet. The service is available in two options: Direct Connect, which is access to a dedicated, physical port at an MCP location at a speed of 1Gbps; and Private Connect, which is access to a virtual port via a partner MPLS provider at flexible speed options.
