AWS Direct Connect live at NextDC Melbourne data centre

By

Amazon Web Services(AWS) Direct Connect has established its third point of presence in Australia and the first outside Sydney, with deployment in NextDC’s Melbourne data centre.

NextDC says the Melbourne (M1) data centre is delivering important geo-redundancy for service durability and AWS’s Melbourne-based customers can now access AWS Direct Connect through a cross-connect service at M1 – and customers in other locations can leverage inter-capital services and secure elastic connections via the AXONVX network to connect to AWS Direct Connect at M1 or one of the Sydney locations.  

According to NextDC, by connecting directly to AWS at M1, NextDC customers can benefit from full integration between their cloud services and internal applications, and build a “seamless hybrid cloud deployment, where applications and workloads can be moved as needed between private, public and on-premise platforms”.

NextDC positions AWS Direct Connect as providing an alternative to using the public internet to access AWS cloud services by establishing private, low latency network connections to increase the performance, reliability and security of their AWS applications and workloads.  

“The fact that AWS chose M1 data centre to host a Direct Connect point-of-presence is a testament to the world-class quality of the facility and the strength of our customer and partner ecosystem, NextDC CEO Craig Scroggie says.

”We’re very pleased to see NextDC join the select group of the world’s leading colocation providers chosen by AWS to host a Direct Connect location.”
