What is the difference between a Hosted Partner and a Direct Connectivity Partner?

A Hosted Partner is a business partnered directly with the Public Cloud Provider that can provide a dedicated handoff to the Public Cloud Provider’s infrastructure.

A Dedicated Connectivity Partner is a business who can provide a connection from your selected location, to the facility where the Public Cloud Provider’s Point of Interconnection is hosted. Direct Connectivity providers cannot provide a direct handoff to the Public Cloud Provider within the facility.
