DIRECT CONNECTIONS TO IBM SOFTLAYER

Early adopters of cloud computing used the Internet to reach their platforms. But with more business critical data and workloads moving to the cloud, having a fast and predictable connection is quickly becoming a requirement for many companies.

WHAT NL-IX CAN DO FOR YOU

Most cloud providers have options for direct connections to their compute platforms at selected locations. But you may not have a presence in the same datacentre, city or even country. By connecting our network to those cloud providers we can make those direct connections available to you in any of the sites we have a presence in.
