BT has launched a new service to provide global businesses with direct access to IBM Cloud via the BT network. 

BT Cloud Connect Direct for IBM offers businesses the benefits of highly predictable, security-rich and reliable network performance when building and deploying critical business applications and data on the IBM Cloud.

With Cloud Connect Direct for IBM, BT customers receive a dedicated, high-performance connection to the IBM Cloud so they can access services including compute, network and storage infrastructure as well as an extensive catalogue spanning AI, Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), data and analytics capabilities. Direct cloud connectivity helps businesses achieve better performance, security and availability compared to connecting over the open internet.

Cloud Connect Direct for IBM is being delivered into IBM Cloud data centres in the UKvia IBM Cloud Direct Link, a network service designed to secure and accelerate data transfer between private infrastructure and the public cloud. This will be followed in the coming months with direct connectivity into IBM Cloud data centres in mainland Europe, the US, Australia and Asia, optimising performance and compliance for customers in those regions. Cloud Connect Direct for IBM will be managed and supported from a single BT-managed service desk, providing proactive management and quality of service.

Cloud Connect Direct for IBM leverages BT’s global network reach, spanning 198 countries and territories. The service is designed, implemented and supported as part of the customer’s existing network infrastructure. This means less redesign, less change and more consistency with existing network practice when connecting to new cloud services.
