NEXTDC Limited, Australia’s leading Data-Centre-as-a-Service provider today announced the launch of AXON Systems. AXON Systems will deliver the AXONVX (Virtual Exchange), an advanced switching platform providing Connectivity-as-a-Service across the region. Being a 100% vendor and carrier-neutral service, AXONVX will provide enterprise and government impartial, diversified access to participating carriers and cloud providers, on demand.

As Australia’s first neutral virtual exchange AXONVX provides secure, elastic connections via a dynamic, high-speed switching fabric. AXONVX’s on demand elastic connectivity allows end-users and solution providers to radically simplify the process for bonding multiple networks and cloud services.

Key Highlights:

  • Elastic virtual connections are critical to supporting consumption-based connectivity for our customers and partners that take advantage of the solutions available from our ever-expanding Cloud Centre community.
  • AXONVX offers users the choice of logging into the AXONVX portal to select and enable their virtual connections with a simple, easy-to-use interface, or utilising APIs to seamlessly integrate Connectivity-as-a-Service into their own systems for rapid orchestration.
  • Customers can leverage AXONVX’s scalable on demand connectivity to reduce CAPEX and become more responsive to ever-changing business needs.
  • By combining consumption economics with elastic connectivity AXONVX fulfils the rapidly growing need to dynamically provision multiple networks and cloud services on demand, driven by the increasing adoption of hybrid cloud.

  • NEXTDC Chief Operating Officer Simon Cooper
  • “With the flexibility of a virtual exchange new services can be added on demand, with connectivity that doesn’t become a fixed-cost roadblock.”

“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.”

NEXTDC Chief Executive Officer Craig Scroggie
“AXONVX is accelerating the development of the digital economy, enabling our partners to create elastic connections between customers and suppliers with unprecedented speed and flexibility. This new, efficient model will advance the development of hybrid cloud solutions, directly benefitting customers through greater commercial flexibility combined with a multiplicity of on-demand service providers.”
