You can now connect to Azure, AWS, IBM, Google, and other clouds services, from our data center in McAllen. Cloud services have become a popular option that provides reliability, scalability, cost advantages and many other network benefits like increased efficiency and better performance with optimized connections – all while reducing the risk of DDoS attacks and other threats that can occur with private Internet connections.

How to connect to the cloud from MDC?

Begin by establishing a connection at one of MDC’s data center locations with one of the operators that now provides cloud services like Telia, Sparkle, GTT, or Akamai. The cost plans are quite competitive and the installation is simple. Our team is always available to support you with connectivity solutions.

If you already have a presence in MDC you can use the cloud connectivity services of our Tier 1 operators. The solutions are scalable and allow you to obtain similar benefits to those offered by other markets with the direct presence of these cloud providers.

The majority of Tier-1 operators offering these connectivity services include month-to-month, on-demand, or contract plans with capacities starting at 100 Mb – ideal for operators with Enterprise customers.

Connect to the clouds anywhere in our ecosystem and rely on the SLA-backed connectivity service with full MEF 2.0 certified Ethernet services. It is as simple as choosing a port and duration of the contract, which ranges from 1 to 36 months.
