Console Connect, the leading provider of global interconnection solutions, today announced CloudNexus, the world's first automated cloud-to-cloud direct connection solution for the enterprise. CloudNexus enables private, secure direct connections to be spun up within minutes, between multi- or hybrid-cloud environments, across disparate locations and providers.

Your Clouds, Your Way

The process of cloud migration and workload mobility is painstakingly complex by slow, unsecured and unpredictable public internet connections.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is no longer only a promise. With common data definitions for metalcutting machines specified in the MTConnect standard, we now have a way to easily collect large amounts of data regardless of the machine manufacturer. Development of the IIoT brings with it new requirements to control, monitor and analyze these massive amounts of data, and convert them into actionable business intelligence in real time. So, in addition to connecting machines with a standard language, manufacturers need provisions for local computing and secure networking.

Major networking equipment suppliers are releasing hardware designed for long-term reliability in data collection and security under factory conditions. Advanced switches and other components now enable manufacturers to collect data for both local and cloud computing environments. This provides a more customizable approach to security, data storage and analysis...
