Packet Launches Automated IoT Service With Microsoft Azure

Packet, a bare metal automation platform for developers, has announced Packet Connect, a new service that provides private, automated interconnect for cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The service launched with Microsoft Azure and will be expanded to include other clouds; it is available at Packet's New York, Silicon Valley, Dallas and Amsterdam data centers, as well as at all edge locations.

According to the company, Packet Connect makes it easy for developers to manage diverse hybrid cloud infrastructure by providing reliable interconnection on an hourly and per-GB basis. The service is automated via native APIs and supports virtual connections at speeds ranging from 100M to 10G.

"We built Packet Connect to be both easy to consume and very powerful, which is consistent with our relentless focus on empowering developers across the entire infrastructure stack," said Ihab Tarazi, Packet's CTO, in a prepared statement. "With Packet Connect, interconnection becomes simply another application that works seamlessly from the edge to the cloud, allowing developers to implement hybrid cloud and IoT solutions in minutes, with full devops deployment model."

The new service builds upon other networking features that developers can leverage with automation in Packet's bare metal cloud. These include local and global BGP, the ability to announce and control private IP space, and a flexible Layer 2 / VXLAN capability.

"Organizations around the globe are looking to embrace digital transformation, which is increasingly requiring the transformation of their networks and their cloud strategies," said Rohit Mehra, IDC's VP of network infrastructure research, in the prepared statement. "Packet's release of an automated infrastructure offering that includes bare metal and interconnection comes at a time when enterprises are actively evaluating highly-connected IT platforms to support hybrid and multi-cloud connections."
