Batelco, the leading digital solutions provider in the Kingdom has expanded its cloud connect solutions portfolio with the introduction of Google Cloud Interconnect. The development strengthens Batelco’s cloud services. It also includes AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Express Route. It will boost the Company’s global connectivity solutions by offering a secure, reliable and resilient network.
Among the benefits of the cloud solutions are reduced network costs, increased bandwidth throughput, and a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections. This enables Batelco’s customers to enjoy a consistent and best in class performance.
Batelco’s Google Cloud Interconnect is a dedicated interconnect. It provides users with direct physical connections between their on-premises network and Google’s network. This allows the transfer of large amounts of data. It results in cost efficiency as it does not require the purchase of additional bandwidth over the public internet. Additional benefits to Google Cloud Interconnect, which has become the ‘go-to’ solution to connect premises data centres to Google Cloud, include low latency and highly available connections. Enabling users to reliably transfer data between their on-premises and Virtual Private Cloud networks.
