Comcast Business now provides enterprises with dedicated links to IBM Cloud

13 Apr 2017 Philadelphia - Comcast Business now provides direct, dedicated links to IBM Cloud's global network of data centres, allowing Comcast Business to provide enterprise customers added flexibility with more choices for connections to Cloud enablement. Comcast Business customers can receive up to 10 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of private network connectivity to IBM Cloud for public, private, or hybrid Cloud deployments, as well as bare metal environments, to deliver a wide range of critical business applications.

"By working with IBM Cloud, Comcast Business gives enterprises more choices for connectivity so they can store data, optimize their workloads, and execute mission-critical applications in the Cloud, whether it be on-premise, off-premise or a combination of the two", stated Jeff Lewis, vice president of data services at Comcast Business. "Through dedicated, reliable, secure access with multi-Gigabit performance and low latency, organisations can connect to a Cloud system that best fits their needs with the ability to easily scale up in the future as requirements change."

Direct Cloud connectivity helps businesses achieve better performance, security and availability compared to connecting over the open Internet, and Comcast's offering is backed by a service level agreement (SLA). With Direct Link, Comcast Business clients will have access to IBM Cloud's expanding global footprint, which currently includes over 50 data centres in 19 countries across six continents. All IBM Cloud data centres connect to advanced networking infrastructure, hardware and software with robust bandwidth and connectivity for high performance and reliability.

"Cloud platforms are fundamentally changing how the world's data is processed, stored and delivered while delivering better agility for enterprises to help reduce costs, improve consumer experiences and create new revenue opportunities", stated Steve Canepa, general manager, global telecommunications, media and entertainment industry, IBM. "Today's announcement represents a continued collaboration with Comcast to deliver robust technologies that drive innovation - integrating the power of Cloud across private Cloud solutions, hybrid deployments and public Cloud offerings."

Comcast Business' network connects to nearly 500 data centres as well as cloud exchanges for dynamic access to multiple Cloud providers.
