Your dedicated connection into the cloud: fast, simple, stable, and secure

DE-CIX provides private access to cloud service providers. This means you can use a DE-CIX access to connect to several cloud service providers; simply via an VLAN to the DE-CIX Cloud Exchange.

DirectCLOUD in a nutshell

  • DirectCLOUD is a dedicated connection between your infrastructure and a chosen cloud service provider.
  • The connection is established via VLAN, which is transported from you to DE-CIX.
  • DE-CIX extends this VLAN to the cloud.
  • All this within our cloud ecosystem for end-to-end cloud connectivity, where you can choose your preferred partners.

With our DirectCLOUD service finder, you can search for available cloud service providers, filtering for categories like IaaS or DDoS, features like self-provisioning, or certifications.

The DirectCLOUD service can also be used to connect to other ISPs in order to use their services, e.g. IP transit, infrastructure, and network capabilities.
