Tata Communications subsidiary, NetFoundry, has partnered with Singapore-based cloud provider, 1Cloudstar to implement secure and custom cloud solutions through Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Asia.
1Cloudstar works to deliver cloud advisory, migration, connectivity and managed services to private and public sector customers in various industries built on platforms such as AWS.
Based in Singapore, the firm has a physical presence and coverage across Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia.
As a member of the AWS partner network, 1Cloudstar supports AWS Direct Connect, providing network connections to improve enterprise access to AWS cloud computing platform and services via a private fiber optic connection.
1Cloudstar can quickly scale these connections to support connectivity needs, enabling new environments to deploy in hours instead of weeks.
This helps AWS customers reduce bandwidth costs and achieve secure, predictable network performance to the Cloud and their AWS applications.
NetFoundry will now deploy its AppWAN solutions across 1Cloudstar environments, which will make it easy to instantly spin up software-only, highly secure, performant, edge-to-cloud networks to any AWS workload or form-factor over the Internet using our web-based orchestration tools and APIs with micro-segmented networks via the myCloudMAS Solution (Cloud Management and Automation Suite).
“Instead of taking weeks’ of waiting time for the telco links to be ready, and signing expensive contracts, NetFoundry’s game-changing solutions enable us to build cost-effective, secure and high-performance cloud connectivity solutions for our customers from anywhere at any time, in a matter of hours," said Mike Li, CEO of 1Cloudstar.
In one instance, NetFoundry reduced data transit time from two days with a traditional VPN tunnel to less than eight hours with an AppWAN, using the same Internet connection.
Finally, if any changes need to be made, such as connections to ancillary applications that may have been overlooked, this can be mitigated in minutes, rather than days or weeks with other connectivity options.
1Cloudstar’s Cloud Connectivity Services provide an end-to-end, carrier neutral, managed private connectivity service that connects customer’s physical facilities securely and reliably to their AWS cloud infrastructure via AWS Direct Connect services.
NetFoundry AppWANs can greatly facilitate enterprise application deployment and operations, including cloud connectivity on AWS.
"1Cloudstar as experts in cloud connectivity and migration with AWS are faced daily with the issue of legacy connectivity and its incompatibility with the digital transformation to deliver security and agility businesses need,” added Dipesh Ranjan, head of Asia Pacific at NetFoundry.
“The NetFoundry platform allows them to enable their customers network with is abstracted from the underlay, in the same way AWS does for compute and storage, to deliver connectivity in minutes which is performant and secure for critical apps using APIs and DevOps tool and methodology.
"They are the ‘gateway’ for businesses to become cloud-native on AWS."
1CloudStar was recognised in 2018 as its leading specialised partner for the ASEAN region, providing critical solutions built on the AWS cloud for customers across ASEAN.
