As the most important internet exchange in the world, it’s essential for the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) to be well-anchored in the Dutch data center ecosystem. After all, it’s the main digital gateway to Europe. Over 850 global networks are connected to the AMS-IX. The internet exchange takes care of their connectivity, so for AMS-IX the collaboration with NorthC simply made sense.
Where previously mostly internet and service providers, hosting and cloud providers, and large content providers used the internet exchange, AMS-IX is seeing an increase in other types of customers connecting. “Data flows are still rapidly growing, and the digitalization of businesses is increasing”, says Aleksandar Mitrov, Product & Business Development Manager at AMS-IX. “This causes an unabated demand for colocation. This is also due to the guarantees on business continuity and the efficiency advantages of colocation.”
