Two years after its launch, France-IX’s marketplace is being continuously enhanced both in terms of new partners and proposed services. Today, eight services are available, including IP transit, cloud direct access, DDoS protection or paid and remote peering, all made available through 11 sellers, among which Orange International Carriers (AS5511). The latter was of high interest for Axians Cloud Services, a managed service provider specialised in the monitoring, maintenance in operational condition and outsourcing, remotely and up to 24/7, of critical IT architectures and in IT recovery plans.
“Our objective was to create network redundancy of our existing Orange connectivity using a totally different path. Orange proposed us to install a private VLAN at France-IX, which enables us to reduce interconnection costs while creating a fully redundant connection” explains Aurélien Guillaume, System & Network Administrator at Axians Cloud Services.
The France-IX marketplace is the technical intermediary between the France-IX members and the official marketplace partners, providing complementary services to peering. All marketplace services are available directly from the official sellers and are delivered directly at the exchange points in Paris or Marseille to guarantee technical optimization and perfect agility.
