CenturyLink has launched Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections, giving enterprises the ability to easily self-provision connections on-demand through a secure portal or via API integration.

The new service which works on a pay-as-you-go model enables on-demand, real-time network connections between enterprise locations, public data centers and cloud service providers across the globe. It enables real-time creation and deletion of private Ethernet connections to cloud service providers. Customers can now dynamically connect across hybrid cloud workloads including their private cloud and data center locations, as well as within a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS). 

With CenturyLink Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections, enterprises can quickly and easily connect locations on CenturyLink's robust fiber network of more than 2,200 public and private data centers and over 100,000 on-net enterprise buildings to cloud service providers across the globe. The service is available across thousands of locations in North America, Asia Pacific and Europe.

This new capability makes it easier for enterprises to leverage flexible, high performance networking in a variety of configurations, said CenturyLink. CenturyLink Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections is delivered over private MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 connections across CenturyLink's redundant global fiber network using CenturyLink's software defined networking (SDN) technology.
