Connect to the Cloud.

  • Cloud Services Gateway.

    Integrate your colocation, dedicated servers, private clouds and public clouds. Our Cloud Services Gateway provides secure, agile and low-latency connectivity between your LAUNCHTM environment (Macquarie Cloud Service’s private cloud) or colocated hosting environment to any of the public clouds.

    Cloud Services Gateway can also be used to provide Layer 2 or Layer 3 connectivity between your colocated hosting environment and over 700 3rd party data centres around the world.

  • 100% SLG for Australian Data Centres.

    Google Cloud Interconnect Partner.

    With Cloud Services Gateway for Google Cloud Partner Interconnect, your office, Collocated services, and LAUNCHTM Hybrid and Private cloud services can all be connected directly to Google Cloud for:

    • Increased security – your link is your own, and part of your wider defence-in-depth framework
    • Lower latency – with a direct, known, short path straight from your service to Google

    Heavily reduced data egress charges. Interconnect enables you to transfer large pools of data between networks, which can be more cost-effective than VPN tunnels or purchasing additional bandwidth over the public Internet

    Our Cloud Services Gateway is available from all Intellicentres as well as our Perth and Melbourne PoPs.

We're flexible fibre providers.

    Dark Fibre.

    We’re flexible with fibre providers.

    Dark fibre provides customers with the ability to establish secure, private and highly available point-to-point links between their data centre and any other location that is covered by the dark fibre network.

    We are carrier agnostic; we will happily work with your current provider to haul in dark fibre and terminate this in your racks. Chances are they’re already connected with us – all the major telco’s have a presence in our Intellicentres.

    We’re a Fibreconx connected data centre.

    Our Macquarie Park Data Centre Campus is connected to the Fibreconx dark fibre ring network, connecting data centres across Sydney with pre-provisioned capacity and diverse paths between data centres.

  • Cross Connects.

    Cross Connect cabling enables tenants to establish duplex circuits between racks located over facility managed structured cabling.  Cross Connects are ordered by customers for connection to carrier services and may also be ordered for connections between customers and between carriers.

    Cable types supported include:

    • Duplex (2 Core) Single Mode Fibre (SMOF OS2)
    • Duplex (2 Core) Multi-mode Fibre (MMOF OM4)

    Cross connects can be established between racks within the same Intellicentre, or seamlessly between Intellicentres within the same campus (e.g. between IC2 and IC3).

    Services requiring Federal Government security classification are installed in secure dedicated conduits compliant with the Federal Government’s ACSC cabling requirements.
