25 February, 2016: Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications (RCOM) today announced a partnership with NEXTDC Limited (ASX: NXT), Australia’s leading Data-Centre-as-a-Service provider to expand its global footprint into Australia with a presence in NEXTDC’s M1 Melbourne and S1 Sydney data centres.
GCX’s scalable global IP and MPLS network provides direct interconnections to third-party networks, with a managed network services platform that connects approximately 27,000 sites in 158 countries.
The availability of the AXONVX virtual exchange across all NEXTDC facilities is an attractive additional feature for GCX as this opens up on-demand access to customers throughout Australia through the automated provisioning and flexible bandwidth available from the independent community of AXONVX network service providers.
“Our expansion across key data centres in Australia and New Zealand further enhances our global network and Cloud capabilities to meet the ever-increasing demand for global collaboration, the adoption of cloud, and open up new markets for our customers,” said Dave Pearson, Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand, Global Cloud Xchange. “ANZ based enterprises can now securely connect to our global network and access public cloud providers worldwide.”
NEXTDC CEO Craig Scroggie commented, “The ability to access interconnection platforms like GCX’s is bringing new value to data centre operations, and when matched with the AXON virtual exchange available in data centres across the country, offers seamless, on-demand network connectivity to a wide range of cloud and network providers.”
