Network-Enabled CloudThe benefits of a private network, the flexibility of cloud
Enterprises connecting to cloud infrastructure and applications via the Internet are concerned about security, performance and reliability. AT&T NetBondSM, a network enabled cloud solution, allows customers to extend their MPLS Virtual Private Network (VPN) to cloud service providers for the delivery of business applications through fast and highly secure connectivity. AT&T is driving the network enabled ecosystem and working with leading market players such as Microsoft, Salesforce.com, IBM, CSC and Equinix.
Better Performance and Security
AT&T NetBond uses patented technology that uses Software Defined Network (SDN) capabilities, providing traffic routing flexibility and integration of VPN to cloud service providers. With AT&T NetBond, customers can expect up to 50% lower latency and up to 3x availability. In addition, network connectivity can be scaled up or down with the cloud resources resulting in bursting of up to 10 times your contracted commitment. From a security perspective, AT&T NetBond isolates traffic from the Internet and from other cloud traffic reducing exposure to risks and attacks such as DDoS.
Simplicity with network-enabled cloud
AT&T NetBond allows customers to create highly-secure, private and reliable connectivity to cloud services in minutes without additional infrastructure investments and long term contract commitments. We also enable end to end integration with cloud service providers resulting in a common customer experience regardless of the cloud platform.
Cost Savings with network-enabled cloud
Because it can reduce over-provisioning, AT&T NetBond can result in savings of as much as 60% on networking costs compared to internet based alternatives. Also, customers experience true flexibility in that they only pay for what they have ordered and are able to change their billing plan at any time to reflect usage.
