AT&T brings Amazon Web Services into NetBond cloud network

Other cloud heavyweights already attached to NetBond include Salesforce.com and Microsoft Azure.

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.

An exact launch date hasn't been revealed, but the integrated AT&T NetBond-Amazon Web Services offering is scheduled to go live at some point in 2015.
