PCCW Global, the international operating division of HKT, has established on-demand, direct and automated connections to Alibaba Cloud Express Connect.

Last year PCCW Global launched on-demand direct connections to Google Cloud across Asia, Europe and the Americas.

PCCW Global’s Console Connect provides on-demand, private connectivity to Alibaba Cloud enterprise customers via PCCW Global’s global network, which spans more than 150 countries around the world.

PCCW Global’s collaboration with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, allows enterprises to scale their cloud connectivity and facilitates rapid provisioning of capacity on-demand via the Console Connect platform with direct access to their business-critical applications, connecting any and all endpoints across the customers’ networks. The platform is easy-to-use yet driven through sophisticated automation software that eliminates the complexities of network configuration. PCCW Global’s Console Connect platform enables enhanced performance, visibility, monitoring, and security, while providing additional reach for Alibaba Cloud customers.

Paul Gampe, CTO, PCCW Global
By connecting the Alibaba Cloud platform to Console Connect at multiple points around the world, we have enabled businesses to rapidly establish secure high-performance direct connections to business-critical applications hosted in the cloud.
