How it works.

MacStadium has partnered with Lumen to streamline secured connectivity between your cloud provider(s) and our data centers. With connectivity to over 2,000 third-party cloud locations, Cloud Connect extends and connects your existing cloud to your MacStadium Mac cloud. MacStadium has deployed redundant Lumen network endpoints in each of its data centers allowing rapid provisioning of secure private circuits.

MacStadium leverages Lumen Cloud Connect to deliver reliable dedicated Ethernet Virtual Circuits (EVC) between your cloud provider and our facilities. Choose a private ethernet circuit size based on your data transfer needs (10Mbps up to multiple 10Gbps) between MacStadium and your cloud provider. After you have exchanged cloud IP and peering information with MacStadium, we will provision the EVC between your external cloud provider’s location and MacStadium’s data center, configure routing between the networks, and provide you with hands-off access. Set up the appropriate peering configuration in your cloud portal, and you will have direct access from your cloud provider into your MacStadium environment.
