Enterprise demand for more cloud connectivity and ease in moving applications continues to drive giants’ expansion of cloud architectures.

Data centre operator Telehouse has expanded the portfolio of cloud services providers involved it its recently launched Cloud Link exchange.

The company has added the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) which joins Microsoft and its Azure Express Route suite.

The Cloud Link exchange was launched in March 2017 and built to allow customers to link to multiple cloud service providers through private connections and simplify their overall hybrid cloud infrastructure.

The service is currently available to customers sitting in Telehouse’s London Docklands campus.

The now added AWS connectivity includes the cloud giant’s Direct Connect solution which allows customers to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to AWS.
