The main motive of Cloud service is to cut the cost. However, a common problem for businesses is that actual data egress costs are far higher than anticipated. The direct link is a solution to the problem.

What is DirectCLOUD?

It is a dedicated physical fiber interconnect to a cloud provider within a colocation facility. You will often see direct termed as "native," "on-net" or "onramp." Irrespective of what it’s called, it’s the fastest and most trustworthy avenue for your digital ecosystem and customers – and 60%-70% cost savings on data egress rates.

Here are the top 5 reasons to use DirectCLOUD
