BOULDER, Colo. – November 12, 2014 – Day1 Solutions, the cloud services and solutions expert, and Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO), an international provider of Bandwidth Infrastructure services, have signed an agreement to deliver private connectivity between enterprise customer data centers and Amazon Web Services (AWS) worldwide. The agreement was announced today in Las Vegas at AWS re:Invent, the annual AWS Partner Network cloud computing conference.
Day1 Solutions will offer Zayo private connectivity to AWS customers through its Day1 Connect managed service solution. Day1 Connect is a turnkey, pre-packaged, managed service that delivers an end-to-end, private and secure connection from AWS into the customer data center. Day1 Connect leverages dedicated network connections offered by data center and telecom partners, like Zayo, to deliver a complete solution that can reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
“Zayo’s global fiber-optic network delivers a highly scalable, secure and consistent network experience,” said Luis Benavides, CEO of Day1 Solutions. “We’ve connected to AWS through Zayo to support the rapid growth of our own business, and look forward to extending these benefits to our enterprise customers worldwide through Day1 Connect.”
“Day1 Solutions simplifies and accelerates cloud adoption with a comprehensive suite of services and solutions for enterprise customers,” said John Real, vice president of strategic channels at Zayo. “By leveraging Zayo’s dark fiber network and direct connections to AWS, Day1 Solutions will be further enabled to support enterprise customer cloud strategies.”
Enterprise customers use Day1 Connect to support critical aspects of their IT operations in the cloud, as-a-service (aaS). These include but are not limited to: private storage and compute aaS where primary data is kept local; disaster recovery aaS which can reduce VMware and server costs by as much as 75 percent; test and development aaS which dramatically increases efficiencies and time to market; and high performance workloads aaS which optimizes big data and analytics.
Zayo’s Connect to the Cloud Platform enables private connectivity to more than 24 cloud providers, including AWS. By leveraging Zayo’s 81,000 route mile fiber-optic network to access the cloud, customers gain access to reliable, secure, high-bandwidth connectivity that improves cloud experience. Customers can use Tranzact, Zayo’s innovative shopping platform, to access the Connect to the Cloud Platform. Tranzact enables customers to access pricing, place orders, and view existing and pending services through an intuitive web application.
