DRFortress also states that the company also plans to add additional direct cloud connections for customers in Hawaii to reach any of the 45+ ECX Fabric locations across the globe. With this direct connect solution, Hawaii businesses can expect to see significant network connectivity cost savings by utilizing one single Layer 2 network circuit for both high-speed connectivity from 1G to 10G service and a simple cross-connection. Fred Rodi, President and Founder of DRFortress said,
“DRFortress is proud to be the first provider in Hawaii to offer this cutting-edge cloud solution. Our Cloud Connect solution extends Hawaii businesses to the edge with a secure private line to public clouds.
