As the era of cloud computing takes hold, an increasing number of enterprises have shifted to solutions based on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The purposes are to improve the end-user experience while flexibly expanding the capacity of enterprise systems and increasing data storage, fulfill the needs for the development of cloud-based enterprise application services, cut high-cost and high-risk capital expenditures, and achieve operation goals in a short time.
However, enterprises face problems such as unstable connection and security issues as they exchange important or a large amount of data through public Internet to clouds. Hence, to ensure a safe and stable connection, Taiwan’s AWS users are forced to connect to AWS cloud platforms through overseas servers in Japan, Singapore, or Hong Kong, thereby significantly increasing the cost for establishing connection. To improve the connection quality of enterprise public clouds and meet the requirements of information security, Chief Telecom－a partner of AWS based in Taiwan－provides a private connection solution called “Chief Cloud eXchange + AWS Direct Connect”. Compared with regular public Internet connection services, it is more reliable, faster, and has a lower latency, thereby alleviating enterprises’ concern over the connection to AWS data center and enjoy AWS’s lower cost of data transfer rate.
