Direct connectivity to Amazon Web Services anywhere in the world.

BSO has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver high-performance direct connectivity to your AWS cloud environment from anywhere in the world.

As an official AWS technology partner, BSO offers high-performance, reliable connections from your data centre, office or colocation environment direct to the AWS Cloud ecosystem via our dedicated BSO Cloud Connect service.

What is AWS Direct Connect?

AWS Direct Connect lets you establish a dedicated network connection between your network and one of the AWS Direct Connect locations. Using industry standard 802.1q VLANs, this dedicated connection can be partitioned into multiple virtual interfaces.

This allows you to use the same connection to access public resources such as objects stored in Amazon S3 using public IP address space, and private resources such as Amazon EC2 instances running within an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) using private IP space, while maintaining network separation between the public and private environments. Virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time to meet your changing needs.

What is BSO Cloud Connect?

BSO Cloud Connect offers you a faster, more reliable connection to AWS than Internet-based connectivity through dedicated bandwidth and private lines.

  • Predictable performance
  • Scalable and resilient service
