On the heels of Google Compute Engine's latest price reductions, it was assumed Amazon Web Services would answer accordingly.
Although not quite the same as a routine round of heavy discounts, the cloud provider does have a big development in the works in tangent with AT&T.
AWS is the latest big player in tech to join the telecommunications giant's NetBond cloud integration platform.
NetBond is designed to serve as a foundation for AT&T business customers looking to connect respective Virtual Private Networks with any cloud compute or IT service environment in AT&T’s partner ecosystem.
As a security precaution, traffic is isolated so that it is directed only to cloud platforms with access to AT&T's private global network.
AT&T introduced a similar deal for Microsoft Azure public cloud customers last fall and then with Salesforce.com earlier this year.
Additional tech heavyweights attached to NetBond include IBM, Equinix, Hewlett-Packard, Box, and VMware, among others. Through these integrations, AT&T boasts to serve businesses across a swath of industries with data-sensitive needs, such as healthcare and government.
Through this new collaboration, AT&T enterprise customers will be able to connect to AWS via AT&T's MPLS VPN from any location on a private network.
