What are your interests in Cloud Computing and AWS user group?

As more businesses consider moving their application to the cloud, we believe the network connecting that content to their users cant only be internet. twt is rolling out their Intelligent Network and has become a Direct Connect Partner to AWS. We believe a "best effort" network wont be good enough when spinning up applications, pre production and production. When the cost savings are so real and hosted services provide elastic infrastructure that can scale on-demand the network has to not just do he same, it has to be end-to-end. tw telecom will provide end-to-end ethernet connections from AWS and cloud providers back to over 16,000 businesses, buildings and datacenters across the US. Thru our portal, performance of that network will be visible so the applications can be better managed and bandwidth adjusted on-demand so businesses will only need to pay for the network they need when they need it. Do others agree the network performance is critical?


Sales Engineering Manager for tw telecom, Northeast Region - Our team design next generation networks including an increased use of cloud-based services and networks that enable business critical applications that optimize the user experience.
