Global Cloud Xchange connects to UAE-IX

10 March 2015 |


Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) reveals today at Capacity Middle East in Dubai, UAE, that it has joined the UAE-IX; the first carrier-neutral internet traffic exchange platform in the region.

GCX deploys cloud solutions to enable enterprise applications to perform at the highest levels, and is focussed on developing the infrastructure that powers cloud services worldwide.

“By joining UAE-IX, we can further expand and interconnect with other networks in the Middle East, to leverage our capabilities and provide high-performance, low-latency connectivity across the emerging markets corridor, spanning across Europe, the Middle East and Asia,” said Chris Bayly, SVP of Middle East and Africa at GCX.

“We are pleased to expand our partnership with UAE-IX and look forward to being part of this fast-growing community.”

Harald Summa, president at DE-CIX International, said that GCX infrastructure is being hit with increasing demands to deliver more.

"By incorporating UAE-IX into the GCX network topology, the company benefits from the growing network of networks on the Dubai exchange, the decreased latency of sending data to its final destination and the increased network resilience and security," Summa said.
