AMSTERDAM - July 14, 2021 - PRLog -- AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), one of the world's largest Internet hubs, is expanding its data centre footprint in the Netherlands with two new locations. As of October, they will add a Points of Presence (PoP) in the data centres of Smartdc in Rotterdam and Greenhouse Data Centers in Naaldwijk, both located in the Rotterdam/The Hague area. It is the first time in the history of the organization that AMS-IX adds PoPs outside de Amsterdam metro area to the exchange in Amsterdam.

According to the governmental body of the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam The Hague, these latest expansions of AMS-IX are a great stimulus for the establishment of tech and enterprise companies in the region. Through AMS-IX, companies have direct connections with a multitude of networks regionally and globally and can therefore guarantee high quality and efficiency of digital services to be delivered. Many applications benefit from this enhanced connectivity, including live streaming, provisioning of business software, online gaming, the delivery of video calling services, or just facilitating an efficient set-up of extensive company networks.

AMS-IX (https://www.ams-ix.net/ams) is one of the largest Internet exchanges in the world and has more than 875 networks connected to the exchange in Amsterdam, including companies like ebay, Akamai, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Tele2, Worldstream, Leaseweb, GoDaddy, i3D.net, and many more. The exchange in Amsterdam is hosted in fourteen data centres in and around Amsterdam. The data centres in South Holland will be the fifteenth and sixteenth physical locations of the node.

AMS-IX will start building the extension in South Holland this summer. "These should be ready in the fall," says AMS-IX CEO Peter van Burgel. "These new locations are of great importance for our ambitions. The Rotterdam The Hague region has the potential to grow into a major tech hub, so it is important for us to have a presence in these data centres (https://www.greenhousedatacenters.nl/en/colocation) here. Several large technology companies are already established in the Rotterdam The Hague region and there are no restrictions to facilitate rapid growth."
