More and more organisations are using public cloud services. Acquiring services from a cloud is an attractive thought in many ways. Usually, incentives are related to the cost-efficiency and flexibility of services. However, connection speeds may slow down the transition to cloud services, especially when it comes to latency-critical services. In general, the quality of cloud services is directly proportional to the reliability and speed of connections. Connections to public cloud services are typically made through the Internet, which presents separate challenges related to the high availability and latency of services.
Cinia cMatrix enables a separate, data secure connection to public cloud services, independent of the Internet. Unlike connections made through the Internet, the cMatrix service also includes monitored end-to-end connections and a service level guarantee.
The service utilises Cinia's high-speed and geographically direct submarine cable from Finland to data centres in Central Europe, enabling low-latency connections. cMatrix provides you with direct, Internet-independent customer-specific connections to the European locations of providers of public cloud services: Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Dublin, Paris.
The cloud services currently available through the cMatrix service are Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Office365, Google Cloud, Softlayer and Oracle. It is also possible to link several cloud service providers through a single physical cMatrix connection. Furthermore, the same connection can be used for accessing Finnish private cloud services, such as the secure Cinia Lioncloud service.
