This means Batelco is the first provider from Bahrain to enable customers around the region to connect directly to AWS infrastructure using the AWS Direct Connect service.
Organisations looking to connect to AWS to use the flexibility, scalability and security of the AWS cloud can now do so via a direct, private connection on Batelco’s fully diversified global network.
This provides customers the ability to procure secured connections for high availability and resiliency to use the AWS cloud.
Batelco chief global business officer Adel Al Daylami said as organisations look to move more of their business critical applications to the cloud, network security and performance become critical success factors.
“By joining hands with companies such as AWS, Batelco is enabled to offer the most in-demand services to its partners and clients and secure key projects connecting major organisations in disparate locations across the globe,” he added.
“AWS Direct Connect provides a direct and secure low latency connection, enabling our customers to enjoy a private, secure and high-performance connection to AWS over a one-stop shop solution.”
Amazon Web Services Worldwide public sector director Max Peterson said, “By becoming an AWS Direct Connect Partner, Batelco will help their customers reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and receive a more consistent network experience as they move their technology infrastructure and build new applications in AWS.”
