Digital Realty to Launch Service Exchange

Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, announced today the release of its Service Exchange, an interconnection platform that facilitates direct, private and secure connections to multiple cloud service providers – including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure – as well as telecommunications providers and other Digital Realty customers worldwide.

Service Exchange simplifies interconnection and makes access between interconnected services, providers and businesses more flexible, more scalable and easier to use than ever before.  Upon its launch later this year, Service Exchange will offer significantly greater performance, reliability and security for cloud services and data center access than the public internet.

“Enterprises undertaking the digital transformation must be able to navigate growing concerns regarding network security issues, changing regulatory requirements, unpredictable performance and escalating operating costs,” said Rick Villars, Vice President for Datacenter and Cloud at International Data Corporation.  “Digital Realty’s Service Exchange will enable enterprises to tackle these concerns and efficiently manage high-performance interconnections between internal applications and cloud resources in a secure and cost-effective environment.”

Service Exchange will be made available through a global partnership between Digital Realty and Megaport Limited’s (ASX: MP1) U.S. subsidiary, which provides the elastic, SDN-based Ethernet fabric that enables interconnection between cloud providers and Digital Realty customers.
