Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) has announced that Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS) has extended Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to all AWS Regions around the world. AWS also announced its new AWS Direct Connect -- a service that enables enterprises to bypass the Internet and deliver data to and from AWS via a private network connection.


"’As the largest hotel company in the world with hotels in over 100 countries, our business requires us to operate with a global mindset,’ said Scott Johnson, Vice President of Enterprise Engineering, InterContinental Hotel Group. ‘By making Amazon VPC available in all AWS Regions and in multiple Availability Zones, we gain even more flexibility to deploy our applications in the cloud as we target markets around the world. With AWS Direct Connect, we can quickly migrate data to and from AWS with predictable low latency and high throughput, while avoiding expensive Internet bandwidth charges.’"
