NEXTDC launches virtual exchange subsidiary

Data centre as a service provider NEXTDC has launched a new subsidiary dedicated to providing connectivity as a service to enterprise and government customers.

The new subsidiary, AXON Systems, will operate a fully vendor- and carrier-neutral platform linking customers to multiple telecom service and cloud providers.

The platform, named the AXONVX (Virtual eXchange), will provide elastic connectivity to help simplify the process for bonding multiple networks and cloud services.

NEXTDC said customers will be able to select and enable virtual connections via a single interface or through using APIs to integrate the capability into their own systems. Connectivity will be scalable on demand.

“With the flexibility of a virtual exchange, new services can be added on demand — with connectivity that doesn’t become a fixed-cost roadblock,” NextDC COO Simon Cooper commented.

“The cost-and-use optimisation of data flows between the elements of an IT service will be key to getting more from less in the public and private data centres of the future.”

Research firm Ovum estimates that the global data centre interconnection market will grow at a 10.5% CAGR between 2014 and 2019 to reach more than $4.2 billion. Over a similar period, data centre traffic is projected to nearly triple.
