NEXTDC links to IBM Direct Link via cloud

By

Data centre operator NEXTDC is providing a direct network connection to the IBM Cloud, with the Direct Link service now available nationally through a point-of-presence at the company’s Melbourne data centre.

Nationwide access to the IBM Cloud is done via NEXTDC switching fabric that provides secure connectivity and reduced network costs through the automated provisioning and flexible bandwidth available from network service providers in NEXTDC data centres.

NEXTDC CEO Craig Scroggie said customers can now get a high-speed, private network connection from their existing infrastructure directly into an IBM Cloud powered by SoftLayer, providing complete access and control over IT resources, allowing them to move workloads in and out of the cloud.

“This new relationship with IBM reflects the importance of our nationwide connectivity to Australia’s IT industry.

“NEXTDC is a central point of connection between our customers and the diversity of carriers and service providers. Through our switching fabric we can deliver an infinite number of connections between enterprises and global cloud platforms such as SoftLayer, and the services they support.”

Jack Beech, Vice President Business Development for SoftLayer, an IBM Company, said “IBM Cloud has maintained a long-standing commitment to providing advanced network capabilities to the enterprise as part of our core service offering.

“By extending our Direct Link services to now include access to NEXTDC, we further our goal to improve the flexibility, performance, security and reliability of enterprise connections to our IaaS platform.”
