Auckland brings the world closer to NZ with CloudFlare

CloudFlare, the internet performance and security company, has partnered with the Auckland Peering Exchange (APE).

CloudFlare, the internet performance and security company, has partnered with the Auckland Peering Exchange (APE).

APE, operated by CityLink, is the largest Peering Exchange in New Zealand with more than 80 ISPs, leading Content Delivery Networks (CDN), media networks and education networks.

In the coming weeks it will be connected to international content distributed by CloudFlare, now local to New Zealand and transit-free.

“CloudFlare is of tremendous value to our clients of APE," says Nick Willis, CEO, CityLink, which runs the New Zealand Internet Exchange (NZIX) of which APE is a part.

"It will enhance the Internet experience for APE customers in New Zealand and save substantial costs too."

“At NZIX, we are constantly growing our peering relationships and building value added solutions for our customers.”

CloudFlare operates out of 28 data centres in 20 countries around the world, automatically caches files at edge nodes allowing websites to load twice as fast.

When a CDN connects to a Peering Exchange, all the ISPs and other clients in the Peering Exchange can exchange traffic directly with the CDN.

“The Auckland Peering Exchange is the natural choice for a peering partner in Southeast Asia,” adds Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO, CloudFlare.

“This partnership enables us to easily reach the bulk of New Zealand service providers and their users, delivering content closer to the user and enhancing performance.”
