DE-CIX expands portfolio to DirectCLOUD product

09 November 2016 | Jason McGee-Abe


DE-CIX is expanding its product portfolio, with immediate effect, to include DirectCLOUD and will enable customers to access cloud service provider connected to DE-CIX. The first provider to become available is Amazon Web Services (AWS), one of the largest cloud providers world-wide.

A number of popular services – such as Dropbox, Netflix, Foursquare, Reddit and HootSuite – draw on the services of AWS. In addition to this, the portfolio of cloud providers will be enlarged further in the near future. 

Customers can expect improved network performance, increased security, and lower costs for infrastructure with DirectCLOUD. DirectCLOUD is available in a range of bandwidths from 50 Mbit/s to 10Gbps. For existing customers, a connection to a cloud provider via DirectCLOUD can be created in just a few minutes, and for new customers in just a few days.

DirectCLOUD is initially available at all DE-CIX locations – the so-called “enabled sites” – in the metropolitan region of Frankfurt. In conjunction with this, in September DE-CIX expanded the availability of its services in Frankfurt to 20 data centers, entering a partnership with Global Switch, one of the leading operators, owners and developers of provider-neutral data centers for enterprise customers in the European and Asia-Pacific regions.
