FPT Telecom Offers New SD-WAN Edge Solution using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Lower Data Transfer Costs
FPT Telecom provides solutions for wide edge networks, FPT Cloud Connect Edge with many utilities, allowing customers to improve user experience and optimize business costs when using cloud applications.
FPT Telecom provides edge solution for software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) – FPT Cloud Connect Edge – a service in the ecosystem FPT Cloud Hub – accelerates application connectivity and reduces data transfer costs by 35% from Amazon Web Services (AWS), and other public cloud providers, allowing customers to improve user experience and optimization business costs of using cloud applications.
May 2022 – FPT Telecom launches FPT Cloud Connect Edge in cooperation with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a company under Amazon.com. FPT Cloud Connect Edge allows customers to connect between sites in Vietnam and AWS using SD-WAN technology with an internet connection and through the SDN Gateway of FPT Telecom at the nearest location.
FPT Cloud Connect Edge combines FPT Cloud Connect, which provides private access to application services in a simple, effective, and secure manner, and FPT Cloud Edge, a Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service of FPT Telecom based on different providers, including Aruba Edgeconnect (previously named Silver Peak Systems). FTP Cloud Connect uses AWS Direct Connect, a cloud service that links networks directly to AWS to deliver consistent, low-latency performance.
Challenges of Cloud Applications
As enterprises migrate more workloads to public clouds and offer Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, enterprises need to ensure reliable and low-latency cloud connectivity for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), SaaS, and private cloud-hosted applications. These requirements can add complexity to organizations when managing IT workloads.
Other key enterprise challenges include poor end-user experience and impaired application performance resulting from high latency or disrupted undersea fiber-optic cable routes. Relying on expensive, dedicated, high bandwidth private Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) circuits from data centers to virtual private clouds, adds additional costs for companies.
With FPT Cloud Connect Edge, organizations can benefit from:
Lower latency to less than 30ms from Ho Chi Minh City to AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region with AWS Direct Connect and a stable 24x7 latency with no difference between peak and off-peak hours
By leveraging AWS Direct Connect, customers of FPT Telecom can establish private connectivity between AWS and their hybrid cloud or on-premises environments. FPT Cloud Connect Edge can lower network latency, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent and stable network experience than Internet-based connections.
FPT Cloud Connect Edge reduces data transfer out by up to 40% with SDN algorithm.
With Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Acceleration technology and wide-area network (WAN) Optimization, FPT Cloud Connect Edge can optimize the data transfer by 40% and reduce the data egress (data moving out of the cloud) fees by up to 70%. This optimization will free up costs and reduce administrative challenges for enterprises needing to invest and operate expensive MPLS/Metro WAN connectivity.
Each WAN overlay is secured edge-to-edge via 256-bit AES encrypted tunnels, which improves security from customers’ branches to AWS, and vice versa. FPT Cloud Connect Edge meets strict core security and compliance requirements from AWS.
Improved user experience on the application
FPT Cloud Connect Edge optimizes the virtual network for applications. This solution improves the application's data distribution on flexible and optimal transmission lines, based on the application's network usage characteristics, like distributing web traffic type via Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) to the Internet, SAP traffic via AWS Direct Connect to AWS, and more.
"FPT Cloud Connect Edge is a game-changer for customers who manage multiple branches in different metro areas using AWS. This solution allows customers to reduce up to 70% of their data transfer costs, while lowering security risks, using AWS’s technology to reduce latency from branches to AWS."
