Cloud computing is exploding into IT infrastructures everywhere. Touted as the way to deliver greater efficiencies and innovative applications, it's hard to ignore the benefits cloud computing represents. But despite all the promise and hype, can you trust just any cloud with your mission critical applications? What about security and regulatory concerns?

The network has always been seen as an important IT infrastructure element. But with cloud computing, the network becomes part of the application. Level 3 uses our networking expertise to bring cloud service providers and cloud service users together over a network cloud optimized for your unique needs.

Level 3 is an Amazon Web Services Direct Connect solutions provider delivering private, dedicated high-bandwidth connectivity solutions to Amazon customers adopting AWS Direct Connect.
