With Console, EdgeConneX’s Detroit metro area enterprise customers will gain scalable, private, direct connections to the world’s most popular cloud service providers, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and more.

“As enterprises look to scale and innovate, they need secure and consistent access to the cloud,” Al Burgio, CEO, Console, commented. “The Detroit Edge Data Center, enabled by Console’s Interconnection Platform, allows area enterprises to have secure and robust solutions to quickly solve their cloud migration challenges.”

Console enables companies to bypass the public Internet and directly connect to business-critical cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. The Console platform also enables direct connections with a variety of other cloud service providers, enterprises and networks. Services accessible via the Console platform offer highly reliable, private and flexible direct connections that avoid the associated risks of sending data over the public Internet. The Console platform extracts Layer 2 and Layer 3 configuration complexity for the enterprise to connect its network privately and directly to others.

EdgeConneX is pleased to announce Detroit as the next Tier 2 market to now offer locally available cloud for area enterprises following its recent announcement in Portland. The new high-speed connectivity service provides additional options for companies requiring the most direct, cost-effective, reliable and secure access to their preferred cloud-based solutions. The EdgeConneX Detroit Edge Data Center (EDC) is now one of the most connected, high-performance and secure cloud on-ramp facilities in the country with the combination of these offerings.

“With Console’s enterprise software and interconnection platform, EdgeConneX will provide enterprise businesses full access to the cloud in the Detroit metro market,” remarked Clint Heiden, chief commercial officer, EdgeConneX. “This deployment highlights how investments made at the Edge of the network can level the playing field for enterprises located in cities outside of the few core global markets, transforming non-traditional locations to prime connectivity points for burgeoning enterprise businesses.”

The EdgeConneX Detroit EDC is purpose-built to offer security, speed and performance improvements. These innovations enable customers to deliver digital content, cloud and applications to end-users as fast as possible. Edge Data Centers are proximity-based, strategically located nearest to end-users’ points of access to reduce network latency and optimize performance.
