Cloud connections a breeze following launch of Vector Cloud Link
Posted on 8-Jun-2015 21:00. | Tags Filed under: News.



New Zealand companies will be able to connect to the cloud at a lower cost with no long-term contracts following the launch of Vector Cloud Link.

Vector Communications, the data network arm of Vector Ltd, has developed the new Cloud Link service and is offering it directly to businesses which need to link their offices to two or more data centres to access cloud applications and other services.

A “disruptor” product, Vector Cloud Link not only offers considerably lower costs*, it also provides businesses with greater flexibility and agility because it requires no fixed-term contracts. Consequently, companies can add, remove or modify Vector Cloud Link connections at any time depending on how their cloud strategy and app providers change.

Vector Communications’ ownership of its own fibre optic network has made Vector Cloud Link possible. The company has built numerous fibre paths into data centres around New Zealand so Vector Cloud Link is able to leverage the investment already made in that infrastructure.

By using its own network, Vector Cloud Link can provide virtual connections to more than 40 data centres throughout New Zealand, another 20-plus in Australia, plus Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure, at very competitive rates* compared to the price companies have paid previously.

Vector Communications has been building fibre into those types of data centres since the year 2000. Back then, many businesses would have housed all their software applications and security back-up in their own server room or data centre. Today, up to 90% of companies outsource many, or all, of their applications to an off-site secure data centre – referred to as being “in the cloud”.

Vector Cloud Link will initially target New Zealand businesses looking to move to the cloud, particularly those with around 500 to 3,000 staff who need more dedicated bandwidth.
