Cloudlink

Developed by Cenitex, this service enables connectivity to cloud providers for our customers. Using a dedicated private connection, CloudLink gives you reliability, faster speeds, and higher security than an equivalent Internet connection.

Any cloud provider that peers with Equinix Cloud Exchange in Melbourne and Sydney will be accessible via CloudLink. 

ExpressRoute bridges customer networks with Microsoft Azure cloud services. ExpressRoute circuits and CloudLink provide connectivity to the Microsoft data centre in Melbourne. 

Direct Connect bridges customer networks with AWS cloud services. Direct Connect ports connected to CloudLink provide connectivity to the Amazon data centre in Sydney via Melbourne. 
​​​​​​​
Equinix Internet Exchange (IX) peering is a private connection to access public facing Internet services, like Office 365. Utilising CloudLink and IX, data will be exchanged in a more cost effective and private manner then over the public Internet.
