Vodafone Customers Get Access to the Cloud Thanks to the DE-CIX DirectCLOUD Portfolio

Connections to More than 50 Different Cloud Service Providers

Frankfurt/Main, 20 February 2020. DE-CIX, the operator of the world’s largest Internet Exchange in Frankfurt am Main, is expanding the partner network for its DirectCLOUD service. Effective immediately, Vodafone Company Net customers can also implement connections to more than 50 different cloud service providers via the largest German cloud exchange. The aim of the partnership is to offer business customers throughout Germany greater availability and security as well as shorter package delivery times for their cloud workloads.

“We are pleased to have Vodafone, one of the major Internet service providers, on board as a partner for our cloud exchange. Vodafone is impressive, not only because of its wide reach, but also because of the many possibilities to realize multi- and hybrid cloud scenarios, such as Azure, Amazon Web Service, Google, IBM, Alibaba or numerous regional clouds,” says Harald A. Summa, CEO of DE-CIX, about the new partnership.

The DE-CIX DirectCLOUD service is an interface between Internet service providers, companies, or data centers on the one hand, and cloud service providers on the other. They are connected directly through a Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), via an access at DE-CIX (access via a physical port). This makes access to many different cloud providers, from niches to hybrid solutions, very easy.

DE-CIX operates Internet exchanges in over 20 metropolitan areas worldwide. DE-CIX in Frankfurt is the world’s leading Internet Exchange with a data throughput of more than 8.3 Terabit per second (Tbit/s) at peak times.
