PacketCOR, the Cloud On-Ramp Product by PacketFabric, Enables Direct Connectivity to Cloud Service Providers
CULVER CITY, Calif., January 22, 2018 – PacketFabric, the highly scalable, hyper-meshed, connectivity-as-a-service platform and a member of the NantWorks ecosystem of companies, announces today the availability of PacketCOR, its cloud on-ramp product. PacketCOR enables direct, secure and scalable network connectivity to cloud products from any point on PacketFabric’s Layer 2, meshed private network.
PacketCOR simplifies the process of establishing direct connectivity to cloud service providers, with options for dedicated connectivity or cost-effective, aggregated connectivity. At launch, PacketFabric offers connectivity to cloud service providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Packet, and Markley Cloud Services. Cloud connectivity can be provisioned and managed using PacketFabric’s web portal or Application Program Interface (API). All networking services provided by PacketFabric are backed by a carrier-grade Service Level Agreement (SLA).
“We established PacketFabric in order to securely transmit big data at terabit-scale across our supercomputer network to interrogate the cancer genome in real time,” states Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, Chairman and CEO of NantWorks. “I am excited at the milestone of now connecting various Cloud Service Providers to enable broader access of the unique layer 2 networking capability afforded by our infrastructure.”
“We’ve seen a great demand for direct connectivity to cloud service providers, especially for high bandwidth connectivity,” comments Jezzibell Gilmore, SVP of Business Development at PacketFabric. “Cloud services have matured, and today companies have increasing bandwidth requirements, as well as a growing need for secure connectivity. PacketCOR is an easy to use, simple to manage and scalable solution for bandwidth-intensive connectivity to cloud service providers.”
PacketFabric customers can use PacketCOR to connect to a cloud service from more than 150 on-net locations in North America, at speeds starting at 1Gbps.
