AMS-IX USA Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) has reached an agreement with data center and cloud services supplier Telx to establish a new Bay Area point of presence (PoP) within Telx's SFR1 data center in San Francisco.

AMS-IX USA operates three Bay Area PoPs that supply a physical platform where customers can meet to exchange Internet-related traffic. The agreement with Telx expands AMS-IX USA's customers' opportunities for peering with connected parties on the AMS-IX platform, including customers that are located in other data center facilities. Customers also will be able to locate and expand their equipment in SFR1.

"The large group of potential and existing AMS-IX USA customers housed within Telx's SFR1 facility, combined with the spacious, state-of-the-art design of the colocation space, make it the ideal location to expand the AMS-IX Bay Area platform and grow our community," explained Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. "Furthermore, Telx is a proven partner with more than a decade of experience in the U.S. colocation and interconnection market, with whom we are greatly pleased to be extending our relationship."

In addition to AMS-IX Bay Area, AMS-IX USA operates AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Chicago. The company echoes the flagship AMS-IX Amsterdam, which interconnects more than 700 unique IP networks.
