Aligned Cloud Access

Public clouds offer economies of scale, shift capital expenses to operational expenses, provide elastic capacity, and keep infrastructure costs low for new projects and initiatives. However, if your organization is connecting to its cloud provider over the public Internet, it faces potential security risks, data loss, and unpredictable drops in network availability.

To make the most out of cloud computing, you need the performance, reliability, speed, and security that only private connectivity offers. Aligned enables secure, private, and cost-effective connectivity to leading Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Salesforce, and others from all of our data center locations in Ashburn, VA data centerDallas, TX data centerPhoenix, AZ data center and Salt Lake City, UT data center.

Connections are offered at speeds starting at 1Gbps and can be provisioned instantaneously.  Aligned’s Cloud Access delivers a flexible and transparent structure to align with your business needs.

Cloud Router

With Cloud Router, Aligned enables customers to easily connect multiple regions of a single Cloud Service Providers (CSP), connect multiple CSPs in the same region, or connect multiple CSPs in different regions over PacketFabric’s Network-as-a-Service platform, allowing customers to completely bypass the public internet.
