Viasat introduces Direct Cloud Connect internet service for businesses

Monday 9 September 2019 | 10:12 CET | News

Viasat announced its plans for a new business internet service known as Viasat Direct Cloud Connect, which will give Viasat customers expanded options for accessing enterprise-grade cloud services. Expected to launch in H2, the service will first offer cloud connection services to Microsoft Azure via Azure ExpressRoute. The Viasat and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute collaboration will initially focus on the US, with an opportunity to expand globally.

Viasat, a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute partner

As a new Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute partner, Viasat will offer a dedicated network connection to Azure. Azure ExpressRoute creates a high-speed, low-latency, private link between a customer's on-premises infrastructure or colocation facility and Azure cloud regions. This direct connection ensures Viasat's business customers can use Azure's integrated cloud services including: computing, database, analytics, networking, storage and more. The private connection also ensures remote facilities remain central to a business's cloud networking plans by ensuring these locations also have consistent access to a dedicated connection to Microsoft Azure cloud services.
