CloudLX Streamlines Access to the London Internet Exchange
Epsilon’s CloudLX platform is simplifying and accelerating access to the London Internet Exchange (LINX).
CloudLX already offers on-demand Ethernet connectivity to global cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services but is also providing connectivity to world-leading internet exchanges. CloudLX users benefit from a single platform for connecting the cloud as well as delivering internet traffic to ISPs, content providers and other partners via LINX.
“We have seen the potential of CloudLX to connect users to cloud service providers and connecting Internet exchanges is a natural extension of our platform. CloudLX is simplifying the connectivity ecosystem and making it really easy to deliver traffic and turn-up applications and services,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon. “This is about removing the friction from global connectivity.”
CloudLX offers users a dynamic and flexible way to use LINX without long-term commitments or the need to install cross-connects or host equipment on-site. It gives users the flexibility to grow their traffic on LINX with all the visibility and performance that CloudLX offers. This enables greater control over their connectivity and the ability to scale their connectivity as they need it.
“We are continually adding new cloud service providers and Internet exchanges to CloudLX to give users a complete platform for their connectivity needs. The feedback from users has been tremendous and for many users, CloudLX has really become a central resource for global networking. Our partner and user databases are growing and this delivers increasing benefits across the ecosystem,” said Szlosarek.
LINX was established in 1994 and has grown to include over 670 members connecting from over 66 different countries worldwide. LINX users gain access to direct routes from a large number of diverse international peering partners.
The exchange is non-profit organisation focused on allowing the reliable exchange of traffic with increased routing control and improved performance. Epsilon is part of LINX’s ConneXions partner programme.
