AlohaNAP Introduces Private Network Connections to Major Cloud Platforms

By Rory Lidstone

AlohaNAP, the premier Hawaiian enterprise data center of fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty, has introduced a major enhancement to its service. In particular, customers of the AlohaNAP data center facility in Kapolei, HI, now have access to Level 3 IP and Fiber Services, as well as the company’s Cloud Connect service.

With Cloud Connect, AlohaNAP clients can securely connect their data center infrastructure to over 30 global cloud services, including major names like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and the Google Cloud Platform—all with faster speeds and greater reliability.

"Level 3 Cloud Connect Platform allows AlohaNAP to provide our enterprise customers a secure private connection to the leading cloud providers in the world," said Robert DeVita, chief sales officer at AlohaNAP. "Whether organizations are connecting to a public cloud based in the mainland United States or extending a hybrid cloud to servers hosted at AlohaNAP, Cloud Connect ensures critical data and applications are always online."

In other recent Hawaiian cloud industry news, Hawaiian Telcom added a new desktop as a service (DaaS) offering to its SmartBusiness Suite earlier this month. The company’s DaaS is an innovative technology that enables users to work from anywhere, at any time and from any device with full access to the software that matters.

As for AlohaNAP’s latest enhancements, private cloud network connections from Level 3 help ensure that customers get the performance and reliability that meet Service Level Agreements, along with reduced packet loss, jitter and speed issues. The service also includes highly secure network technology to help avoid data breaches and address the cloud’s hottest topic: security.

This service is just the latest addition to the state of the art AlohaNAP data center, which opened only about a year ago. The facility offers carrier-neutral connections to both global and local fiber providers, as well as satellite connectivity to over 40 different satellites.
