Cloud disruptor Vapour launches new ‘hybrid’ solution
Disruptive cloud tech firm Vapour has launched a new connectivity solution for organisations seeking the advantages of both a public and private cloud environment.
The newly unveiled Express Connect service offers customers the opportunity to route their data via Vapour’s ISO27001-accredited infrastructure, so that they can achieve a dedicated private connection to their public cloud service.
This means businesses benefit from the public cloud capabilities of AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google, for example, without their traffic going via the internet. The result is an optimum user experience in terms of bandwidth and speed, as well as complete peace of mind when it comes to security.
Express Connect also helps lower organisations’ network costs, boosts IT control, reduces jitter and latency, and enhances overall network performance. It is fully integrated by design – which means budget transparency – with the flexibility to scale up or down as business needs evolve.
This extension to Vapour’s toolkit is a bold move for a company that has invested millions of pounds in its own private MPLS networks.
“Our goal has always been to provide customers with high-performance networks with resilience and security in-built as standard,” explained Vapour’s CEO Tim Mercer. “And, being cloud-only since day one, we were not satisfied with the industry’s readymade solutions, so we built our own private infrastructure.
“This will absolutely remain a critical part of many companies’ cloud architecture, as the public cloud is not right for every application. However, we’re taking the story on, by using that private network to power fast, secure and seamless connectivity with multiple public cloud service providers (CSPs).
“All too often, the market pushes what it wants to sell, rather than offering people choice. As hybrid cloud becomes increasingly popular, we want customers to explore what is truly right for them, without sacrificing resilience or performance.”
Express Connect is available direct to end customers, but Vapour has also devised a reseller solution for channel partners too.
