UAE-based telecoms service provider du said it has joined the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN) to accelerate access to the cloud for enterprises across the UAE.

With this move, du’s enterprise customers will now get rapid access to Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) cloud solutions and also they can streamline and accelerate how they connect to the cloud.

"Joining AWS’s global partner programme means our customers can quickly deploy and connect Cloud services with consistent performance and new elasticity," remarked Fahad AlHassawi, the chief commercial officer at du.

"We are giving our customers access to world-leading cloud solutions and enabling them to scale their connectivity on-demand. In this way, we are making the promise of the Cloud a reality for customers on our network," he stated.

"We are driving cloud adoption through the power and simplicity of our approach. We want enterprises to experience cloud with no limits or barriers and benefit from new speed and agility of our network services," noted AlHassawi.

"Our cloud access exchange brings networking into the cloud era and is a perfect match for the solutions offered by AWS. We are making it easy for enterprises to adopt cloud," he added.

Du said its cloud access exchange is the first on-demand connectivity platform deployed in the Middle East.

It enables enterprises to connect services supported with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) and Experience end-to-end. Cloud Access Exchange combines enterprise level connectivity with the scalability and flexibility of AWS.
