Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subsidiary of Amazon that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals, companies, and governments, on a metered pay-as-you-go basis. AWS’s version of virtual computers emulate most of the attributes of a real computer, including hardware central processing units (CPUs) and graphics processing units (GPUs) for processing; local/RAM memory; hard-disk/SSD storage; a choice of operating systems; networking; and pre-loaded application software such as web servers, databases, and customer relationship management (CRM).
The 1NCE network platform utilizes AWS Direct Connect and VPC, which enables a dedicated and high-performance leased line via GRX connection to partner networks such as the Deutsche Telekom network. The cloud environment of the 1NCE platform as well as its components are engineered for highest availability and can be dynamically scaled and adapted to the respective network requirements. If the clients cloud solution is also based on AWS, it allows the connection to the 1NCE platform via VPC peering, which enables a dedicated connection between two AWS environments.
The direct connection via VPC Peering has the advantage of higher security, as the data is not sent via open internet, but remains within the AWS ecosystem. In addition, the low latency results in much more stable and faster connections.
