QTS Realty Trust, the leading provider of data center and hybrid IT solutions, has entered into a strategic collaboration with AWS to offer AWS customers direct connected colocation solution, that will address the increasing demands for hybrid IT solutions.
The solution – QTS CloudRamp, is a secure and compliant dedicated colocation solution optimized for hybrid cloud workloads and public cloud migrations. It is prebuilt, preconfigured and integrated with AWS Cloud. Colocation data center provides highly secure and flexible solution for enterprises, which enables them to easily expand within a stable environment without having to relocate the infrastructure.
“A growing number of our customers require colocation as part of their migration to the cloud,” said Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Sales, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “QTS is a strategic colocation provider and provides customers industry leading customer support and as a Managed Service Partner has the ability to seamlessly integrate their solution with AWS.”
“By aligning with AWS, we are able to offer an innovative approach to colocation, bridging the gap between traditional solutions and the cloud,” said Dan Bennewitz, Chief Operating Officer, Sales, Product & Marketing, QTS. “We are honored to collaborate with AWS and we are committed to working with them to serve the needs of their customers.”
The new colocation solution offers flexible terms with automated onboarding, and monthly payment options. It doesn’t require an annual subscription like other colocation contracts, and can be ordered from AWS Marketplace for months, as per the requirement.
“The AWS and QTS collaboration delivers a solution that allows us to more effectively manage our entire tech stack while giving us the flexibility to execute deployments worldwide,” said Mohit Saxena, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder, InMobi. “This new collaboration helps companies, such as InMobi, minimize risk in their hybrid IT and cloud journey.”
It’s not the first time that QTS has collaborated with AWS. The data center provider had previously collaborated with AWS and is developing a range of solutions with it including AWS Direct Connect, QTS Managed AWS, QTS CloudRamp, and tailored colocation solutions.
QTS CloudRamp is currently available via AWS Direct from QTS data centers in Chicago, IL, Piscataway, NJ, Richmond, VA, and Santa Clara, CA.
Tailored hybrid IT solutions for AWS customers are available across its all data centers in US.
