Topic: Finally a Simpler Way to Directly Connect: Learn How More Organizations Can Now Directly Connect to AWS
Date: Wednesday, Oct 7
Time: 2:45 PM – 3:45 PM
Location: Delfino 4005
Speaker: Al Burgio, CEO, Console
In this talk we introduce “Console”, the new enterprise software and interconnection platform that enables both network-to-network and enterprise-to-enterprise collaboration globally. We discuss three specific use cases: Enterprise, Cloud Services, and the Data Center. The wealth of cloud services and their rich capabilities is indisputable, but secure and direct connections to these services remains just out of reach for most enterprises. The challenges center around complexity; specialized network engineering knowledge, and various manual processes are traditionally required to configure access to these services.
We present how Console’s enterprise-grade software simply and securely connects the enterprise to mission-critical cloud services with a click of a button. Console provides automated layer 2 and layer 3 network configuration leveraging open source technologies such as the CloudRouter Project and OpenDaylight, thus simplifying network complexity. For the first time, enterprises can instantly obtain an Autonomous System Number (ASN) and auto-configure BGP for true and immediate direct interconnection. A point-and-click interface is now all that is required to directly connect enterprises to business-critical cloud resources like AWS.
