Internet exchange AMS-IX now offers data center interconnect services

Feb. 21, 2023
The new service enables customers to use the AMS-IX Amsterdam platform to move data from one AMS-IX point of presence (PoP) to another.

Amsterdam-based international internet exchange operator AMS-IX says it now offers data center interconnect services to its customers. The new service enables customers to use the AMS-IX Amsterdam platform to move data from one AMS-IX point of presence (PoP) to another.

The service enables customers link between any of their AMS-IX Access connections to extend their internet infrastructure and reach other data centers, where they can buy or sell services. AMS-IX adds that the service can offer the foundation on which to build a data center backbone network and connect two or more data center locations to perform data backups and migrations.

The service leverages a fully managed and redundant Ethernet network. AMS-IX is inaugurating the service for the 16 data centers in the Amsterdam Metro and in Rotterdam and Naaldwijk.

“This new service can be used for various use cases,” explained Mike Baron, CCO of AMS-IX. “Especially enterprises, the public sector, hosting providers, and managed service providers will benefit greatly from this new service.”
