Follows connections in Frankfurt, London
Telehouse has added Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect links at its Paris Voltaire data center, providing high-capacity links to AWS’ cloud services.
The data center operator has introduced the first Direct Connect location in the French capital to allow for data to be delivered to the cloud via a private network connection. It would otherwise be transferred over the Internet.
Customers at the Telehouse facility can access the AWS network service over a 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) or 10 Gbps connection, or via Direct Connect partner providers.

Partners to the service provide the ability for customers who do not have equipment in the same facility as Direct Connect to link to the cloud service.
The Amazon services that can be accessed with Direct Connect include Elastic Cloud Compute EC2, Virtual Private Cloud, Simple Storage Service S3 and Relational Database Service.
Hiroyuki Soshi, managing director of Telehouse’s Europe division, said: “The adoption of cloud computing is still growing rapidly, with spending on public cloud services alone predicted to increase to more than $141 billion in 2019, as more organisations seek to take advantage of the increased performance and reduced costs offered by the cloud.
“In line with this Telehouse has expanded its highly-connected data centres in Paris and Frankfurt to meet demand, with our latest addition, North Two in London.”
TMeanwhile, elehouse’s London facility has been in the news in recent weeks. An outage that knocked out Internet access across the UK last month was traced back to the company’s Telehouse North data center in London’s Docklands, caused by a power failure.
The downtime affected BT Broadband customers and ISPs reliant on BT Openreach.
