The AIMS Group (AIMS), Southeast Asia’s leading carrier-neutral data services provider, announced its offering of private network connection to support Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect service.
AWS Direct Connect enabled customers in Malaysia to establish a dedicated network connection to AWS Cloud from on-premises datacentre, office, or colocation environment. In many cases, using AWS Direct Connect helps reduce customer’s network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
AIMS Group Chief Executive Officer Chiew Kok Hin said, “We are honoured to provide the service to support AWS Direct Connect in Malaysia so that businesses can leverage the elasticity of AWS Cloud to manage their IT resources.” Businesses can now separate and maintain both a public and private environment where some resources are stored on cloud using public IP address space while critical resources will run on Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) using private IP space. These virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time to meet changing needs.
“AIMS has always been focused on building an ecosystem of partners and customers that are mutually beneficial to each other’s business. Our carrier neutral status offers clients the ease to connect with more than one telco creating a unique multi beneficial ecosystem of international and local clients from industries such as media, content, financial institutions, multi-nationals, tourism, gaming and more,” added Chiew.
“AWS Direct Connect is important and strategic to our ecosystem of customers. We have always listened to our customers’ concerns and wish list and we believe AWS Direct Connect will benefit both our existing and future customers,” said Chiew.
