APE brings the World Closer to New Zealand with CloudFlare
Posted on 1-Dec-2014 20:28 | Tags Filed under: News



CloudFlare 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 operates out of 28 data centers in 20 countries around the world and automatically caches your static files at edge nodes so a website loads twice as fast for the user.

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, resulting in substantial savings on transit costs for both the Peering Exchange participants and the CDN.

“CloudFlare is of tremendous value to our clients of APE. It will enhance the Internet experience for APE customers in New Zealand and save substantial costs too,” said Nick Willis, Chief Executive of CityLink which runs the New Zealand Internet Exchange (NZIX) of which APE is a part. “At NZIX, we are constantly growing our peering relationships and building value added solutions for our customers.”

“The Auckland Peering Exchange is the natural choice for a peering partner in Southeast Asia,” said Matthew Prince, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at 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.”

We understand Cloudflare will start operations in the next couple of weeks, based in Auckland.
