With the hybrid cloud model, IT decision-makers have greater control over both their private and public cloud environments. Moreover, building a hybrid cloud with private infrastructure that’s directly accessible and not accessed through the public internet greatly reduces access time and latency in comparison to public cloud services.

To meet this rising market demand for high-bandwidth connectivity to leading cloud service providers, PacketFabric recently announced that it now offers direct access to IBM Cloud. The company’s cloud on-ramp product, PacketCOR, enables dedicated, security-rich connectivity to IBM Cloud through Direct Link at speeds from 1Gbps to 10Gbps. With PacketCOR, companies can seamlessly create hybrid environments and access IBM’s extensive catalogue of cloud services including Artificial Intelligence (AI), analytics, Blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT). This also provides customers with a protected, reliable and low latency connection for moving critical workloads and data to the cloud versus the public internet.

“Both PacketFabric and IBM have expertise in the industrial sector along with financial services and healthcare,” said Jezzibell Gilmore, SVP of Business Development at PacketFabric. “Customers seeking a dedicated connection to IBM Cloud services can now instantly establish connectivity using PacketFabric’s private network.”

PacketFabric customers can access IBM Cloud services in Dallas, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., from any location on the PacketFabric network. And as a scalable Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform, PacketFabric offers network connectivity on demand that is also cost-effective.

“Whether they are modernizing core business apps or using cloud-native techniques to generate new value from data, enterprises need fast, reliable and protected connectivity between remote networks and the IBM Cloud,” commented Kit Linton, Vice President of Network, IBM Cloud.  “The collaboration with PacketFabric can provide businesses with the connectivity they need for hybrid workloads.”
