Your way into the cloud: fast, simple, stable, and secure. As a private direct connection bypassing the Internet, the DirectCLOUD service minimizes downtime and guarantees continuous connection to your chosen cloud service providers at our Cloud Exchange. Our carrier-grade infrastructure reduces latency, allowing fast and effective collaboration in the cloud – and between clouds.
Private, secure, and direct access to the cloud
From communication to data storage to application development, the cloud offers game-changing opportunities for every business across all industries. The DirectCLOUD service provides private connectivity to over 50 cloud service providers; simply via a VLAN to the DE-CIX Cloud Exchange.
Flexible contract terms
You can try out DirectCLOUD with just 1 month contract terms – or choose 12, 24, or 36 months.
How does it work?
Use case 1: DirectCLOUD as a direct L2 connection between your infrastructure and a chosen cloud service provider:
Step one: You connect to DE-CIX, either directly or via one of our partners.
Step two: DE-CIX extends your connection into the selected cloud – offering a scalable, private, secure connection with low latency.
Use case 2: DirectCLOUD as a private L3 based connection for direct data exchange between clouds.
Step one: You set up a DE-CIX Cloud ROUTER, no need for any physical equipment.
Step two: Join two or more independent DirectCLOUD connections into a single routing domain, providing connectivity between all the clouds attached to the virtual Cloud ROUTER.
This multi-cloud setup can easily be extended to your on-premise environment for a hybrid-cloud setup.
