Initially launched in 2015 as a collaborative open-source project, Console Connect by PCCW Global has relaunched its CloudRouter solution to deliver global virtual routing across one of the world’s largest high-performance networks.
Businesses can instantly use CloudRouter to connect between different cloud platforms and cloud regions, automate their data backup and recovery between clouds with optimized, reliable, and redundant connectivity, and establish secure and fast connections to multiple SaaS providers.
Paul Gampe, CTO of Console Connect and founder of CloudRouter, said, “CloudRouter is back. Through a series of enhancements, Console Connect has taken CloudRouter beyond multi-cloud connectivity and given our users the ability to create a scalable virtual full-meshed network that ebbs and flows according to the needs of their business.”
CloudRouter creates a virtual full mesh among network endpoints, ensuring that network traffic benefits from enhanced routing between data center locations and the cloud. The solution empowers enterprises to privately and securely connect any cloud to any cloud, or any cloud to any location, without dedicated hardware.
Gartner estimates that 75% of organizations that have already invested in cloud infrastructure-as-a-service will go on to adopt multi-cloud strategies by the end of 2022. In response to this, Console Connect provides direct access to the world’s largest cloud platforms, including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and more, through a choice of over 150 cloud on-ramps worldwide.
Michael Glynn, vice president of digital innovation of Console Connect, said, “CloudRouter is a game-changer for Console Connect that enables our users to connect their different cloud and SaaS applications at the click of a button without the need to install, manage or maintain any equipment. CloudRouter also provides endless opportunities for users to extend their network environment without worrying about additional network configuration and management.”
